Soil Testing to Begin Soon at the Bruce Monroe Park Site

November 10, 2017

Beginning next week, soil testing will be conducted at the Bruce Monroe Park site. These tests are a component of the due diligence required for the Build First residential development of Park Morton’s replacement housing.

While the testing is part of the Park Morton effort, it is not the start of the project. Rather it is a preliminary activity to better understand the soil conditions of the site.

Below are some details of what may likely be the most common questions:

Start, End and Hours

  • Tuesday, 11/14, 2017- 11/22, 2017
  • Includes work on Saturday, 11/17, weather permitting
  • Daily work hours are 7am – 5pm

Area of Testing

  • Drilling will commence in different  areas of the park each work day
  • four (4) drills each day
  • A map of the boring locations is below

Safety

  • Impacted area will be cordoned off with cones and construction tape
  • Boring holes will be filled in or patched at the conclusion of each workday
  • The drill rig will remain on site and be fenced during the night

Garden

  • Soil tests will occur in the community garden
  • No garden plots will be impacted
  • Portions of the chain link fence will be temporarily removed and returned upon completion

PARKING

  • A maximum three (3) contractors may park their vehicles in the community
