May 29, 2017 – Beginning this week, Stage 1 of emergency work will begin to repair a significant slide on the southbound lane of Brunswick Road south of East Bennett and Greenhorn Roads. Welco Engineering will be on site to drill and install a series of horizontal drains that will remove excess ground water and relieve some of the excessive hydrostatic pressure.

No significant delays or lane closures are expected, as drilling and drain installation will be performed west of Brunswick Road. Work should be completed within two weeks. The costs to install the horizontal drains is expected to not exceed $75,000.

Design work for Stage 2 of the emergency work is nearly complete. Stage 2 will remove excess road base material and reconstruct a portion of the roadway to current road design standards. In addition, additional large subsurface drainage will be installed to direct additional ground water away from the area. Construction is tentatively scheduled for later this summer.
