October 7: Gateway Slope Notes

Gateway Slope Notes # 51 - Stairs Nearing Completion! :  The stairs appear to be near completion, with a lot of earthwork in progress around the stairs.  You can see the compost filter sock along that edge is in place in preparation for more earth-moving activities in the pictures above.  There will be a concrete plaza in front of the steps that should be constructed soon.  There should also be some stamped and color tinted asphalt at the base of the stairs.  Stay tuned! #GatewaySlopeNotes

Gateway Slope Notes #50 - Precast Concrete Freestanding Column Blocks with Capstones:  See this picture?  Can you imagine the steps that will be constructed here next?  There will be a railing with a 6” minimum compacted stone subbase under the stairs.  The precast cap stones are looking really good!  ADA access will also be constructed!  There will be approximately 14 stairs with a landing area halfway up the stairs. #GatewaySlopeNotes

Gateway Slope Notes #49 - “Construction of Entryway Steps”: These pictures show the backhoe lifting the modular pieces of the retaining walls and putting them in place. At approximately a 45-degree angle to the corner of Baltimore and Scottdale, there will be steps (there will be an ADA ramp as well). You can see in the picture, the construction of thesteps in progress. There should be more to show later today! #GatewaySlopeNotes

Gateway Slope Notes # 46: We’re back!! No progress for quite some time is now turning around to action! Let’s take a look! 🙂

1. See the photo with the metal rods protruding from the ground. Those are called rebar and concrete is going to be poured there. Can you guess what it is going to be? It will be the “Welcome to Lansdowne” sign!

3. The trenches for the retaining wall foundations are being dug. You can see the stone for the leveling pads.
