Beginning April 23, the Hinkley Tennis court demolition will begin. We anticipate fence removal during the first part of the week, followed by the installation of a construction driveway from Busse Hwy to the tennis courts and light pole removal which will likely continue into the week of April 30. Parking lot signage and storm sewer inlet protection will take place on the parking lot the week of April 23 as well, but demolition is not planned before the week of April 30 for the parking lot itself.
A contractor will be on site Thursday, April 5, 2018, to begin installing the silt fence for the upcoming athletic field grading and playground improvement project at Prospect Park. On Monday, April 9, the construction fencing will be installed and work will be ongoing as the weather allows for about 5 or 6 weeks with an expected completion by the Memorial Day Holiday Weekend. During the construction, portions of the parking lot may be temporarily unavailable and some of the walkways will need to close intermittently. We appreciate your patience during this time!
