I took these photos yesterday of a Minger Construction crew working on the $1.2 million Babcock Park Lift Station & Interceptor Sewer Project near the park’s softball field.
Sean Simonson, Engineering Tech Coordinator for the City of Northfield, had this to say in last week’s Friday Memo:
Minger had crew on-site working on rock excavation again. They concentrated on the area near the existing lift station by the Ice Arena early in the week, and late in the week moved back down to the Babcock Softball Park area to continue with rock excavation. Next week crew will continue with rock excavation near the new lift station location, and they also anticipate having a crew on-site late in the week to set the new lift station structure.
Staff met with a representative from the Northfield Public Schools Community Services Division to discuss access and safety issues with the Babcock Softball Field and the upcoming softball leagues. Leagues are scheduled to start on May 2nd, and the project is expected to be completed in late June. Representatives from the School will be contacting individuals from each league to relay the issues with safety and access during construction.
