Blasting operations continue along Shenandoah Drive
Crews are blasting bedrock to make way for the Shenandoah Drive extension. Blasting operations will be limited in the area and will only be allowed from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. on weekdays and from 9 a.m. and 5 p.m. on Saturdays. During blasting, it is estimated there will be up to three blasts per day. Utility installation and roadway construction will continue throughout the winter. The project is expected to wrap up in late 2019.
