Glen Canyon Project Update: Work on the 14th on the Bosworth Entrance Area and Connection to Alms Road, Limited Access

Hi Folks,

As I noted in my last blog post and eblast, you are now seeing some limited work done a bit north of the fenced off area, around the Bosworth Entrance (to replace the swing gate, etc.) and along a portion of the connection to the road north of the recreation center where it connects to Alms Road (and the route to Silver Tree) for erosion control and stabilization of that area.

On Monday, October 14th, access by foot via the Bosworth Road Entrance and the connection to Alms Road behind the Recreation Center will not be possible due to work between the hours of 7am-5pm.  The work might be concluded before 5pm.   If you are visiting the park, several entrances will remain open including 1)the steps from Elk Street (above the construction area), 2) the gate on Elk Street near the ballfields, and 2) the steps to the ballfields from Bosworth and many others around the park. On the 14th, like throughout the project, you will continue to be able to access Alms Road by the steps from Elk Street, or from the other entrances via the trail on the west side of the creek.  Remember, there is a bridge at Silvertree where you can cross over the creek.

Things are moving along on the project – more of the concrete work for the tennis courts, electrical work, irrigation systems are being installed.  As you may know, in the course of the construction, we have encountered some unanticipated complications.  We found some of the site’s sewer lines to be full of debris, requiring some additional work.  Additionally, we determined that we needed to install a new water line, which had not been anticipated.  We are still working to address these utility issues, and I hope to have revised completion dates for the Recreation Center and the park opening in a couple of weeks. Thank you all for your patience.
