Throughout the recent turn in the weather, the crew at Newbury has continued to press on and has even started a new project at the site. The new project featured in this update is the construction of yet another surcharge, which will be the future site of a hotel. In addition to this new focus, the earthwork team as well as the sanitary sewer and storm drainage crews have continued to progress.
Below are the site maps that show where the photos were taken. The locations are numbered and have arrows indicating the direction of view for each photo.
(Point 1, Retail Site)
This update begins with a shot of a new surcharge being created on the retail site. This photo was taken on top of the grocer surcharge and you can see the new 84 Lumber site in the distance. In the future this new structure will be known as the hotel surcharge in order to avoid confusion with previous work.
(Point 2, Retail Site)
By turning 180 degrees from the last view, you get a glimpse of the source for all of this work. Behind the fill pile is an excavator loading a dump truck. This load was then taken to the hotel surcharge where it was laid and later packed by a roller. Also, for a sense of perspective, the road that can be seen above the loading is I-79.
(Point 3, Residential Site)
These shots focus on an area where a storm drainage inlet has been set in place. The excavator in the background cleared the area, while the remote controlled compactor was used to pack dirt and make the area more stable. In the second photo notice the inlet in the distance on the right, each storm structure connects via reinforced concrete pipe to create an extensive drainage network for the development. Also, the excavator in the distance is at work on the sanitary sewer system, and will be detailed in the next few shots.
(Point 4, Residential Site)
These photos feature the previously discussed work on the sanitary sewer system. The first shot shows the excavator clearing out a trench as the sanitary sewer crew lays pipe. The second view is a close-up of the sanitary manhole to which the pipe connects. In the distance is the excavator from the last group of photos.
(Point 5, Residential Site)
Continuing along the right side of the site drive at the turn into the far cul-de-sac, we feature a few close-ups of yet another excavator performing earthwork. You can see this machine in the next photo, and get an idea of the intricacies involved with sanitary sewer and storm drainage operations.
(Point 6, Residential Site)
The final photo of this update features a location that will soon be home to a new manhole. Once again, the excavator from the last series of photos can be seen as well as another manhole structure just to the right of center in this shot.
