Bridge Work

This week three of our bridges have been worked on. The first bridge was rebuilt and is located behind Amherst Circle.  A pot hole in the asphalt in front of it was patched as well.

Two missing pickets were replaced in the bridge behind Anderson.

 

 

 

 

 

 

And at the bridge behind Babson Way, the wobbly handrails and a warped board were replaced. Just in time for school!

Safety Repairs & Improvements

Recently, the lifeguard chair was repaired by a volunteer board member instead of buying a new one. A small shelf was added for the phone in the clubhouse for the lifeguard and the emergency 911 signs were updated with the clubhouse address.

To solve the problem of puddling (a slip hazard) at one of the pool ladders and badly cracked cement, a section was torn up, a drain installed, and new cement poured. The drain empties out into the grass several feet away.


 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The asphalt at the bridge behind Bates and Anderson was repaired.

Caution signs were erected at the path entrances across the neighborhood. The signs also indicate that the paths for for Abingdon Village residents only and that dogs must be leashed.

Additionally, the damaged pet waste station trash can at the clubhouse was replaced by the contractor who was responsible.

 

New Bridge by Bucknell Circle

The old bridge behind the middle of Bucknell Circle had two different kinds of rails, was missing several slats, and showed signs of decay.

 

 

 

 

 

A new bridge was recently built to replace it.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Additionally, the recent wind storms also took down a tree nearby, but thankfully, one of our neighbors saw it and cut it up for firewood, saving the Association the cost of having it done. We love volunteers!
