Truck after truck of old brick rubble came trundling into the park last week to consolidate the staging / stockpiling area. All of this material will eventually have to be scraped up and carted off again; probably late next month. No doubt this will have added substantially to the cost. Meanwhile, big blocks that will form the new retaining wall have arrived.
Mild weather has brought new problems, this time for pedestrians and cyclists; mud. This mud is unavoidable for anyone wishing to travel past the construction. It might be helpful if the construction crew – ever vigilant for pedestrians (wishing to stay clean) straying through the paved area – could spread some wood chips to make life easier and cleaner for people.
Update: Wood chips were quickly applied to the quagmire making things easier for the pedestrians who must pass through.
