Roads, you have local crews from all four Groups. To talk with anyone, you will need to call early, Zero700 or earlier (7 a.m.). The local crews know where there is
a road cut through a hillside, where after heavy rains, the hillside is liable to slide down into the road ! They Know just how much equipment and man hours it will
take to open a road again ! Think clay !
A l@@k in the yellow pages will help you find an Excavation Contractor, he will know about all of the soil types within a 50 mile cycle (or larger ) of his place of
operations, Clays, Clay Types and expected depths ! Further as he has to pay to remove clay from his excavation site, he is looking for a place he can dump his
excavated soil, for free and the closer to his dig site the better ! If you have a low spot you would like filled and leveled he is your guy, do not allow him to deliver
any loads without being there to receive it. When you get through to the boss tell him you want ''clean Fill'' if you only ant 6 or so 5 gallon buckets tell him you will
come and pick up a load yourself ! For the Craft Big AL!

can totally happen in a 48-72 hour break in the weather, besides i doubt that the frost is over 6''[ deep yet ! Now is an excellent time to make phone calls, the
workers and bosses will not be out on the road they will be in house working on projects that they saved for weather like this, Maintenance, Welding, Painting,
overhaul, signage, O.S.H.A. Mandatory training ! Piss tests ! Now is a great time to call ! For the Crafts ! Big AL
