Cutler Lake: Preparation continues to ready for concrete work

Posted on 11/16/2017 by Engineering in Cutler Lake

Workers have been excavating and began subgrade cleaning in the area where dam improvements and a new spillway are to be constructed. This includes shaping the spillway foundation with a substance known as “dental concrete”, which typically consists of conventional concrete that is used to shape surfaces and fill irregularities as preparation prior to concrete structure pours. Construction work is to continue, weather permitting, through winter. Project completion is scheduled for Summer, 2018.
