Channel Mark & Cove Drive       07/08/14

The final paving for Cove Drive and Channel Mark is now estimated to be the third or fourth week in July; crews are now working on a "Completion List" of items. Approximately the second or third week in August the job will be concluded in its entirety.  The soil between the road and sidewalk is now being prepared for Bermuda seeding, which is what the contract calls for; the contractor will sod specific areas, due to the angle of the ground, to minimize erosion.
