Nielson Construction is in the midst of three projects, with the project on Highway 6 from milepost 272 to Woodside is in its final stages. This week crews are finishing paving, grinding rumblestrips, painting and installing signs.

Nielson’s nighttime project on State Road 10 South of Price is picking up strea, with work continuing on intersection improvements at Ridge Road.
