The wetland plantings in the floodplain area are being finished, helping create new wetlands/storm water storage. The new stream bed has been shaped as it meanders along the 2,600’ of previous creek that has been rehabilitated in the process.
Our team is installing Enkamat, a permanent reinforcement matting along the slopes adjacent to the stream channel. In this part of the Green Amor System, the matting is anchored at the top and bottom of the slope with an anchor trench and staples.
Major segmental walls and tiered gabion basket walls are complete on the site. There are two small segmental walls remaining on the Jett Lanier Drive that ties to the Spine Road which should be getting started in the next couple of weeks.
We have finished up to the ½ way mark of the soil nail wall. Here our team is getting ready to start blowing shotcrete on the wire mesh.
We have topped out the block in this area and will install the cap block to finish out. They have roughly 150sf of wall left to complete.
The staging area has been graded and the stone placed. This area will be covered with stone and asphalt binder.
All the signs, glass and store front has come together and is complete, with the exception of the feature wall. Sidewalk will be complete soon.
Inside at the food service area, the ceramic tile is almost complete. The projects are beginning to come together and we are seeing more definition due to the completed work.
As mentioned previously, the food service areas are getting more defined by the finishing touches such as the ceramic tile shown above.
In addition to the front food service areas, the areas behind-the-scenes, such as the cooler and freezers, also had tile installed.
Glass has been installed in the office areas up front. The sheetrock and mud are almost complete and will be ready for the painters soon.
Steady work continues on the offsite roadway improvements. Electric crews have almost completed the transfer to the new pole locations.
Crews have been placing fill on the west side of the steel arches to build the future roadway up. There is still another 8’-10’ of fill to go in here.
Wall crews continue to progress with the segmental portion of the retaining wall. They have installed nearly 1,000 sf of block in the past 3 days.
The channel defining process began with the crews staking out the new channel and started to install the rock vain on the downstream side of the arches.
Rock vein is installed and the crew is working on the riffle section going under the arch. There will be 13 of these structures to be installed in the new channel.
Over 2,000 linear feet of concrete curbs was poured by the Curb crews. There is around 800 linear feet left to pour in the parking lot and will be finished next week.
Fine grade crews are working to get parking lot grades cut and stone placed. This is the main drive on the east side of the parking lot.
The Storefront is coming along nicely. Glass is being installed, as well as some of the sidewalk signs.
We are finishing up our sidewalk prep work with lights, tree grates and bollard sleeves.
We have also started our tile installation. Once all the pieces have been cut out for columns and sprinklers the tile will go up fast.
In the Food Ave area sheet rock is up, mud is being applied and paint will soon follow.
