Ask Mr. Answer Person: "What's happening at the Water Street Park?"

Posted: Sun, Jul 17, 2011 10:47 AM

Joe e-mails Mr. Answer Person: "Any chance you could tell me what is or isn't happening with the little park on Water Street by the Co-op? Things seem to be at a standstill."
Mr. Answer Person would like to make a plea to all you sidewalk superintendents to relax a little.  Yes, there are days when not a lot of construction happens at Decorah's newest park.  That's because the contractors for the project also have other projects they're working on.  But it's also because, despite the small size of the project, it's a complicated project, with the work of one contractor depending on having other contractors finish their work first.

But work is progressing.  Crews now have planted the six trees that will be in the park.  Mulch has been spread between the two walls at the back of the park.  Work has begun on the construction of the gazebo.

Next week the artwork at the park will be installed.  Pavers will be installed soon, as well.

Yes, there are days when it seems the project is moving slowly, but appearances can be deceiving.  The park ought to be finished some time early this fall.
