I received two Expo Line updates relevant to Rancho Park in my mail box last night.


The first is this notice from the Expo Construction Authority about excavation work along the Exposition right-of-way that will begin next week, Feb 6.


Here are the details from the flyer:

Excavation will take place within the Expo Right-of-way to inspect concrete encasements of existing sewers. Each inspection will take approximately one week. If a sewer upgrade is required, work will continue for approximately two additional weeks. Heavy machinery will be used for the sewer inspection and upgrade, including excavators/backhoes, front-end loaders, small bulldozers and trucks. Compacting equipment will be used to compact and restore the soil. Upgrades to the sewer encasement will entail installation of new reinforcing steel around the existing pipe, and the placement of new concrete to upgrade the existing encasement. The noise generated by these activities will be comparable to that of a garbage truck and is not continuous


I also received this City Watch blog post from Ken Alpern, who is a member of Friends for Expo. It provides an excellent overview of the project to date and what future work still needs to be done, including efforts related to the proposed bike path and Parkway.


Expo's work it seems is only just beginning.
