The earthwork contractor has completed removing the contaminated soils from the site leaving the site established and ready for deep foundations. The deep foundation contractor will have their survey company on site Friday, November 12, to lay out the locations of the deep foundations. Granger is planning on mobilizing the deep foundations contractor on Monday, November 15, and starting the deep foundations installation following mobilization and set up of machinery. Deep foundations installation typically takes between 7-10 days to complete with an expected completion date of November 26. Mobilization and installation of concrete foundations and footings will begin the week of November 29 and is estimated to take 5-6 weeks to complete. The lane closure on Abbot Rd. is expected to be reinstalled within the next week.
Lansing Board of Water and Light (BWL) is currently working on power modifications in the alleyway with an expected completion date of November 12. All of the work performed by BWL is contingent on weather and utility crew availability.
