(COLUMBIA, MO) ~ Columbia, MO - The City of Columbia Public Works department has announced that road work will be taking place on South Rolling Hills Road starting Monday, May 20. KLS Crete, the contractor for this project, will be performing slab jacking work to address six sunken spots on the road between the roundabout at State Highway WW (East Broadway) and East Richland Road.

Slab jacking is a process where a mixture of cement, sand, and other additives is injected underneath sunken concrete slabs to raise them. This method has been chosen as the most effective solution for repairing the damaged sections of South Rolling Hills Road.

The project is estimated to take three days to complete, weather permitting. KLS Crete crews will begin work on May 20 and will continue on days with favorable weather conditions until all repairs are finished. To give drivers an idea of what areas will be affected, pictures have been attached highlighting two of the six sections scheduled for repair. These areas have been marked with white lines by the crews.
