If you’ve driven by, attended GO Fest, or played tennis, you’re well aware of the changes taking place at River’s Edge North. Since our last post about the changes, we haven’t talked much about the progress being made. Thus, we thought we’d fill you in. Check it out:
As of mid-November, 100 percent of the base grading work and new athletic facilities have been completed. The two, new, multi-use fields have been outfitted with Bermuda grass, and once open, will alleviate the overuse on the south side of the park.
While not as obvious, crews have completed the majority of the underground work. Eighty percent of the hidden elements of the park have been installed. This includes underground conduit and electrical cabling for security and architectural lighting, electrical utilities for food trucks, lighted bollards, and decorative fountain operations, plus string lines for curb radius for drive lanes and parking areas.
Concrete and Masonry
We are now moving into the concrete/masonry and paving components of the work. This includes curb forming, bollard base footers, seat-wall development, and new magnolia-esplanade forming. If you want to see the original plans for this work, click here to view our previous blog.
If the weather pattern cooperates, we anticipate the park to be completed by June 2020, just in time for the Ironman race! Closing a park, parking lots, and greenway access is never ideal and can certainly be an inconvenience, but we appreciate everyone’s cooperation as we make these improvements. This project provides new recreation and event opportunities, and we can’t wait to see the finished product and the new possibilities it brings.
