Habitat for Humanity announced this week that three local families will receive keys to their new homes during a dedication ceremony on Saturday, Oct. 2, at 2 p.m.

The homes will be open to view, and the families will be on hand to share their experiences and hopes for the future.

Each of these families were selected, as are all HFH-RFV partner families, based on their housing need, an ability to repay a no interest, 20-year mortgage, willingness to put 250 hours of sweat equity (per adult) into the construction of the home, and legal residency.

The Garfield County Republican Party has opened its 2010 campaign headquarters at 918 Grand Ave., next to Vickie Lee Green Real Estate Co. The office hours are 9:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. Bumper stickers and signs are available. Please call 928-8266 for more information.

As a reminder, starting Saturday, Oct. 1, the Colorado Department of Transportation will close one lane of traffic both ways on Highway 82 in south Glenwood Springs when the agency continues a resurfacing project that began in early July.

Motorists can expect single-lane closures in both directions, primarily from 7 a.m. to 6 p.m., for seven to 10 straight days (crews plan to work over the weekend, if necessary, in order to expedite the work). There will be no interference during peak travel periods: no work upvalley between 6:30 a.m. and 9 a.m., and downvalley between 3:30 p.m. and 6 p.m.

Readers may contact Project Information Manager Sean Thomas of Grand River Construction at (970) 618-8329 for information and updates. For information about other CDOT projects, the public may call 511 or log onto CDOT’s traveler information website at http://www.cotrip.org.
