The pool is now closed to all swimmers. The staging areas for equipment are established. The pad for the crane is in place. The protective pathway has been built. (See photographs of the construction setup.) The next step was installing the coffer dam, which is now in place. When the crane arrives, the real work begins. Removing accumulated flood debris from the pool is expected to take four weeks. The city is planning to reopen the pool by March 12th. For background on this project, see last month’s article here.
