2/3/09 Newbury Construction Update

There is a lot of work underway at Newbury!  Our site crews are fully engaged in the deep dynamic compaction work on the Newbury Market site.  Deep dynamic compaction is a process in which soils are compacted using a crane-mounted weight that weighs approximately 12 tons.  The weight is dropped from a specific height in a pattern in which buildings will be built.  The impact of the weight then allows a load bearing site surface in which buildings can be constructed.  The photo below shows the crane lifting the weight before the drop:

Here is video of the repeated drops from the crane in a section of the site:

In addition, Equitrans is up on the upper portion of the site working on the gas line relocation.  Here are a few photos of the work underway:
