Big Kershaw water-line project awaits final OK

By Greg Summers

KERSHAW – Town officials hope that another big utility project – running a 12-inch water line to Haile Gold Mine – can begin once the town gets the go-ahead from L&C Railway.
“All the in-town construction easements have been obtained,” said Kershaw Mayor Mark Dorman. “They’ll be filed with the clerk of court’s office by the end of the month.”
The town is still awaiting official confirmation from L&C Railway for a construction easement to cross under the railroad tracks along Church Street.

Surprise ‘spaghetti-work’ crisscrosses downtown Kershaw

Matson St. water line project hits weird snag

By Greg Summers

KERSHAW – Last month town officials announced that the North Matson Street water line project had been completed in about half the anticipated construction time.

The switch-over opened a can of worms, or more like a can of pasta, said Mitch Lucas, Kershaw’s interim town administrator.

Partnerships in and out of Lancaster County are working together to use $950,000 in one-time state funding to resurface four state secondary roads in the county.
The four roads selected are Rowell Road, Oak Hill Church Road, Musket Road and Craig Farm Road.
Lancaster County administrator Steve Willis said on average it costs $350,000 to reclaim and resurface 1 mile of a two-lane roadway, but the county will be able to complete far more than $950,000 worth of roadwork because of the partnerships between agencies in and out of the county.
