Today, a group of nine Traildogs met at the ADA Trailhead just off of Shangri-La Road to install gravel pavers around the new exercise equipment there. We started early, but the weather warmed quickly.
The Corps of Engineers delivered the pavers and pea gravel to the work site. The work involved raking and leveling the soil around the equipment and removing the few weeds that have grown up on the pad.
The pavers – plastic grids designed to hold the gravel in place – were then laid out and secured to the ground with spikes and washers. Cutting the pavers to fit around the exercise equipment turned out to be a manageable task. Once the pavers were laid into place, they were filled with the pea gravel, and the gravel was smoothed over to provide a professional looking and stable surface around the exercise equipment.
Unfortunately, we ran out of pavers and were unable to completely cover the area. More will be delivered by the Corp of Engineers so the project can be completed relatively soon, hopefully around mid-week. Any delays in receiving the pavers or in getting sufficient help to install them as soon as they are available will likely result in a several week delay in completing the project.
