The Russell Street paving project continues until at least next Wednesday. I spoke with Brian Hensel, Superintendent of the Missoula Street Department Wednesday, a very busy guy, by the way...and he told me that the years of heavy use on Russell has made the project necessary. One lane of the Russell Street bridge has been closed and one lane has been open for traffic over the last week or so. Hensel says the next projects will tackle Van Buren Street and areas near the University..

Hensel asks that the public obey all traffic signs and be patient as the repaving and pothole repair progresses. Just smile and wave...and say thanks!
