The County’s contractor for the Morgan Territory Road Slide Repair project is making good progress with the earthwork operation between the two retaining walls. The earthwork began on October 5 and includes excavation of the earth between the two walls to a depth of 10 feet and then recompacting the material. The earthwork must be done in 3 stages for structural purposes to ensure a stable site. The work includes the installation of a subsurface drainage system. Following the earthwork operation the contractor will install the 8" waterline through the site. Below is a picture of the earthwork operation.
The project is on track for completion by mid-November. We will continue to provides updates and pictures as the project moves forward to completion. For the safety of residents and construction workers, please do not go into the project site.
The Public Works Maintenance crews are continuing to maintain the access road.
Please keep speed to 15 miles per hour on the access road. Your neighbors on Leon Drive have allowed the use of their private road for this access so it’s important to keep speeds to the posted speed limit.
