The concrete subcontractor for the City of New Rockford's street improvement project began work in the city on Monday. Residents and visitors likely noticed the pink markings all over town, which detail the places where concrete repairs are planned. Bituminous Paving, the general contractor, is expected to begin its work this week. Residents should expect periodic, temporary street closures as they continue to work through the city. The Transcript will provide periodic updates here in the newspaper, as well as on our website and Facebook page.
