Frog Hollow completion moved back

Cole County Public Works officials said things are going fairly smooth on the project to improve Frog Hollow Road, but crews are behind schedule due to one main issue.

The completion date was moved back to Oct. 31 due to utility relocation delays, but the road should be open before that.

Work had been scheduled to be done by late September or early October.

“We are looking at getting the first lift of asphalt next week and from there it should go pretty quick,” said Cole County Engineer Eric Landwehr.

Work began in March after the Cole County Commission signed a $1.3 million contract with low-bidder JC Industries to do the project.

This is a cooperative project between the county and Jefferson City, using their half-cent sales tax money to pay for the work.

Landwehr said the connection between Missouri 179 to Creek Trail Drive is basically done, they are just waiting for asphalt and curb work to be completed.

The original Frog Hollow Road project, when it was conceived, did not take into account the new St. Mary’s Health Center, the property owned by the Jefferson City School District and the incoming Sam’s Club. The altered project affects only a portion of Frog Hollow, which will become a dead-end street to allow Creek Trail to connect to Missouri 179.

As part of this project, Jefferson City is doing $266,000 worth of area sewer improvements.
