#16 retaining wall project
It seems that it's been awhile since the last update on the project on #16. The project is basically done, except for the area where the bridge will be located. The Public Works department was planning on beginning construction of the bridge abutments, but a significant winter storm moved in and forced them to prepare for that event. Now that we have several inches of snow on the ground, the bridge project will have to be on hold until the snow melts and the ground dries out. Once the bridge piers are built, the concrete must cure for a few weeks and then the bridge can be lifted into it's final position. After the bridge is in place, the finish grading, cart paths and sod can all be installed.
