All last week, trucks rumbled into Raymore Park delivering old bricks and concrete blocks (clean fill).
I braved the bitter cold this afternoon to find out what was going on. Rather than building a stable roadway along which trucks can approach the river, the whole of the fenced off land is being laid with about 40cm of clean fill to create a working area that stretches to the river’s edge from which the retaining wall can be constructed.
Apparently the plan is for the rubble to be carted away again and the topsoil replaced after the job is completed.
One permanent change that may have been made; the old basement depressions from homes swept away during Hurricane Hazel are probably gone.
