Buckeye Lake: Construction Resumed; Remains on Schedule

Posted on 1/24/2018 by Engineering in Buckeye Lake Dam

Construction at Buckeye Lake resumed after the holidays and the overall project remains on schedule to be completed in late 2018.

Starting this week, contractors will be working two consecutive 12-hour shifts a day, up to seven (7) days a week. Holiday schedules will vary. The updated schedule will be in effect at least until completion of the soil mix buttress, anticipated by mid-July or earlier.

The new schedule will allow contractors to make-up work days lost to weather delays, maximize both staff and equipment during inclement weather, and help ensure the project is finished in time for a return to a normal summer pool for the 2019 recreational season.

The soil mix trencher is not expected be active in front of any one home for more than a 24-hour period as the trencher moves along the dam.
