A permit for blasting is being issued to McGeorge Contracting Company by the City of Hot Springs for work in the Richardson Subdivision, between Twin Points and Higdon Ferry roads, with the first blast expected to take place around noon on Thursday, April 22.
There will likely be a number of small blasts over the coming 90 days as work progresses on the project. Each blast will be followed by several days of excavation and grading. None of the blasting will be near roadways or buildings. All blasting activities are in accordance with all state and federal laws, and as approved by the City of Hot Springs Engineer.
