Area drivers can expect to see more than 600 truckloads of rock on Mountain Area roads during August as the $60-million construction project to strengthen the dam at Bass Lake continues.

Starting Aug. 1, about 32 truckloads per day, Monday through Friday, will be transporting 28,000 tons of rock to the site from the Raymond Granite Quarry to augment rock supplied by the 8-acre Wishon rock quarry that was developed near the dam, according to Pacific Gas & Electric spokesman Paul Moreno.
