*Press Release from Town of Boone*
On Feb. 13, 2017 the Harper Corporation and Garney Construction Company, Inc. were provided with the Notice to Proceed on the Boone Water Line, Water Treatment Plant, Intake and Booster Pump Station Project. The following is a project update and notice of any upcoming road closures. There are currently 218 days remaining in the project contracts.
The Harper Corporation continues to complete items at the water treatment plant, the water intake site and at the Brownwood Road booster pump station. Dewatering systems remain in place and in operation at the intake site. Measures have been implemented to mitigate any noise caused by the dewatering process. Road construction into the intake site is nearing completion. A section of poor soils was encountered and subgrade remediation was required. Preparation and excavation for the wet well at the intake is underway. Stone excavated from the wet well area was used to stabilize the subgrade of the intake road rather than just hauling it off site.
The Garney Construction Company has completed all pipe installation along Brownwood Road, Hwy 421 and New River Hills. Crews continue working on trenchless crossing #5 near the New River bridge at HWY 421.
