November 15, 2018: Thursday and the crew
gets busy leveling up the terrain and moving excess dirt piles out of this are
where the park will be located. There was a mound of dirt between these
two front end loaders complete with a "NO TRESPASSING" sign. The
area is being leveled.
The dirt mound and debris near this old oak tree are being moved away.
Here is the same location with a different view from the "back
yard" looking northeast at the new street under construction.
The large dump truck removes the dirt and debris shoveled up by these two
graders. Only the big yellow grader can dump the loads into the
truck. The little grader dumps into the shovel on the yellow grader.
The concrete wall is still visible and all these barricades and cones need
to be moved today.
The NO TRESPASSING sign is "temporarily" erected.
The sidewalks are taking shape next to the road with a buffer area for
grass between the curbs and the side walk.
This images shows a line of "DIRT and DUST" where the old
asphalt road surface has been cut. The NO TRESPASSING sign is moved to
what could be its final location.
The front end loaders are making short work of the asphalt north of the
cut line seen in the photo above.
The foreman of the crew that manages the surface water runoff to the
drains has marked the "high water" line that I have photographed in
the past with leaves in those locations.
Down at the south end of the access road, the blue water test hose has
been removed. That round steel case that protects the large water valve
below has been replaced with one that will match the height of the new pavement
that will be put in next week.
The last of the asphalt from the road is lifted from the ground by the
little front-end loader and placed into the shovel of the bigger unit, then
dumped into the dump truck body. The "CUT LINE" in the asphalt
is clearly visible in this image.
The concrete trucks keep coming to fill the molds for the sidewalks.
The water line crew is tamping down the dirt over the water main that runs
from here into the development. Another similar water main exists on the
north side of the project.
This soil being installed below is something I have been waiting for to
finish my modifications to the sprinkler system. When the crew goes home,
I should be able to dig down to the sprinkler and add some pipe nipples to bring
the sprinkler up to ground level. The white pipe was put there by me as a
marker. The crew left the pipe in position as the dirt was put there.
