This Week in the Pines Nov 2


    This Week in the Pines!
“This big guy showed up a couple of days ago and seems to like it here.
Maybe it’s the food, maybe it’s the atmosphere.”  sent in by Mark and Linda
All Activities and Programs are open to the Public

Progress is being made on the bridge repairs.
Clubhouse Drive Bridge has about one third of the steel & concrete repair underneath the bridge complete. Deterioration is not as bad as expected in some cases. It is anticipated the work will start to go a little quicker here forward. Next week contractor will begin peeling the utilities back by excavating the area near the bridge to gain access to them. A temporary steel structure will be put in place & the utilities will be temporarily moved to it enabling the contractor access to the bridge railings for removal. Consequently road barricades will be set limiting traffic to one lane at a time crossing the bridge. Read More.…Stay tune for project updates and please use caution when traveling in this area. For more information, contact Public Works 410-641-7425.
