“The weather has improved and we are again making good progress on the project. We have made the decision to concrete treat our soil to help stabilize it so foundation work can proceed. The dump sites have re-opened and trucks are now off hauling excess dirt.” – Mark Headley, Director of Buildings and Grounds

The clearing and moving of the dirt from the site continues in between the rainy days.
