Construction continued throughout the month of March at the new Public Library and Cultural Arts Center site. Following several days of weather delays, rough grading began along with the coordination for the site utility connections on Lakeview Avenue. The piles for the North and East retaining wall shoring were installed and the Lakeview Avenue storm drain bypass is now complete.
A significant number of rain events since the January 5 groundbreaking have resulted in delayed progress at the Public Library and Cultural Arts Center site; however, measures are being taken to recover and reduce significant schedule delays. Last month, water trucks were enlisted by the contractor to haul ponded water from the site in an effort to get the site back to a condition where grading can resume. Above is the latest aerial footage of the construction progress.
Grading operations have begun at the site of the new Yorba Linda Public Library and Cultural Arts Center.
At the November 20, 2018 City Council Meeting, City Council awarded the construction contract for the Public Library and Cultural Arts Center, allowing the project to move forward to the construction phase.
