Lot 31 Update

The Lot 31 excavation has reached a level of dense, hard rock that requires blasting.  Clark Construction began blasting December 5, 2012 and will be blasting daily for approximately the next two to three months.  The blasts will occur between the hours of 9 am and 3 pm, with the majority between 10-2.  Most days there will be two blasts.  All blasts are independently monitored.  The commercial and residential properties immediately adjacent to the Lot 31 project have been informed of the blasting and blast protocol. 

Individuals near the site may also hear or feel the blast or hear the horn notifications of the blasting subcontractor.  The horn is predominantly a notification for the construction workers on site, however the horn is loud enough for individuals immediately adjacent to the site to hear.  The horn will sound approximately 15 minutes and 5 minutes prior to the blast.  In addition, immediately after the blast the horn will sound again.
