hereThis week crews continued to fill roll-off containers with excavated soil and rubble. A small amount of American University Experiment Station-related glass was recovered, and there were no detections of chemical agents or industrial compounds in the air monitors.
On Thursday, we stopped high probability excavation work to conduct various site maintenance efforts, including adjusting our generators and replacing the Glenbrook Road fence. During this first phase of the replacement fence construction (Thursday, January 29 through Saturday, January 31) all construction is being conducted within our existing fence. Saturday work hours will be from 6:30 am to 4 pm (safety brief at 6:30 am, with work beginning at 7 am). We will do our best to mitigate noise during the Saturday morning work. High probability excavation work will then resume February 2.
The second and final phase is scheduled for Friday, February 13 and Saturday, February 14. Crews plan to install the truck access gate and privacy screening along the entire fence, including on the fence between the 4825 and 4801 properties. If the fence construction schedule changes, we will let you know.
Maintenance needs such as these, and some weather delays are expected and are built into our current schedule projections.
