We Have Permits!

Work Starts in Earnest on the Sodo

With work permits in hand, heavy equipment is again working the property on infrastructure as well as the Sodo. Here are some early photos, click on any one of them for a larger view:

This is where the wheelchair ramp will meet the engawa, the covered porch that completely surrounds the Zendo/Sodo.

 

06-Path-to-82nd

We have begun serious work on the public right-of-way path that will connect 82nd Ave. with Russell Place. A dozer cleared the path to 82nd, and trucks are hauling in gravel.

The concrete vault covering the now-underground methane pipes got its cap today.

The cap has an oversized manhole with huge cover. This will be in the entry driveway to the property.
