|Removing old cart path|
Last week, staff began the process of removing the old asphalt and concrete to make way for the new material. Once the old cart path was out of our way, forms were installed and new gravel was added, then compacted. Long pieces of re-bar steel were laid in a grid pattern on top of the gravel to give the new concrete additional strength and guard against cracking in the future. On Thursday of last week, the new concrete was poured and left to cure over the weekend. Today the staff removed the forms, back filled soil along each side of the path and laid fresh sod to complete the project.
I couldn't be more proud of the work the staff put into this project. Although this kind of project may be a little outside their normal scope of work, they all worked together and the finished product speaks for itself.
