Crews were able to stage and assemble the crane in the project area's parking lot at American University, near Watkins Hall, in one day, Saturday, Sept. 20. On Monday, the crane passed the load test, demonstrating it will be able to move the Engineering Control Structure (ECS). The contractor, designated to move the ECS, arrived on site Tuesday to begin preparations for the ECS relocation. We anticipate starting the ECS move sometime next week.
Safety continues to be our number one priority at the site. Throughout every phase of the project, all necessary precautions are taken to ensure the safety of the site workers, the residents of the community, and those driving by.
