Project Updates

First two weeks of September: The large retaining wall behind the parsonage is approaching completion. Duke Power moved power lines underground, which is allowing additional retaining walls and site grading to progress for the new parking lot. The drainage pipe system running from the parking area, alongside the parsonage and connecting to the Ocotea storm water system is finally completed!

Last two weeks of September: The retaining walls that will line the edges of the new parking area and connecting drive are coming along, though there is a certain amount of waiting required as the whole work site dried out from the heavy rains associated with Hurricane Florence. We are grateful that the drainage system was far enough along in its installation to help compensate for the effects of the hurricane. The curb and gutter work along Ocotea  should be wrapping up soon, finishing where the drainage system ties into the city stormwater system.
