From staff reports

Despite the rain and colder weather, progress was made last week on the Mossy Oaks Stormwater Project, according to Mossy Oaks Multijurisdictional Drainage Task Force Chair Neal Pugliese, Col. USMC, Ret.

Basin 1 

The Spanish Moss Trail was prepared for concrete installation, and the first 250 feet has been poured. It is expected to take about four days to repave the trail.

Many new concrete sidewalks have been poured along Battery Creek Road and First Blvd.

Next week, cleanup and concrete work continues on the Spanish Moss Trail, Battery Creek Road and First Blvd. Delivery is expected soon of the pipe that will be installed between homes from North Royal Oaks to Battery Creek Road.

Basin 2 

As advertised, the contractor returned to the Lawton Farms Road area to complete finishing work. The contractor expects to work this weekend to resolve the remaining issues. All three headwalls have been installed on the Spanish Moss Trail between Riverside Drive and Brotherhood Lane, setting the stage for attachment of the massive drainpipes and install the three flap gates. Following the installation of the flap gates, the Spanish Moss Trail will be repaved and reopened.

Crews are not expected to work this weekend.
