More basket wall work and paint is the norm at Gastonia.

Basket wall crew at work

Crews have been working 7 days a week to get the basket walls up and over the arches. This is the first basket layer over the top. There is +/-8’ more fill and baskets yet to place.

 

Flooring beneath the arches

Crews are flooring in the arches so that the new stream alignment can begin. The grading crews will establish a rough elevation for the stream crew to work from. The stream crew will define the channel and splash pools for the new location of the stream.

The off-site stream mitigation clearing was started and the new location staked. You can see the existing stream to the left. The new stream location will meander along beside the existing channel.
