Construction Update #72

Thursday was another productive day. The curb form was completed first thing in the morning, as was the catchbasin frame for Track 45. The first concrete truck arrived at 0900, and the curb was poured. The second truck arrived at 1030, and the ramp into the parts area was poured, along with the pad between the rails on Track 45. Once the concrete set up, all of the curb forms were stripped to allow for finishing. As well as being a nice cosmetic detail, the curb performs an important stormwater management function - It retains the cobbles which break up the run-off from the roof, and directs the runoff into the drain pipe along the wall, which in turn carries the stormwater away.
