The word REPAIR is capitalized because it’s now a reality. We no longer have to ask when is it going to happen. Now the question is, “When is it going to end?” The original estimate was this month but because of technicalities, mostly brought on by the City of Los Angeles, the completion won’t be until June 26th. However, all roadblocks have apparently been removed (no pun intended) and I’m not talking about the roadblock on Tellefson. That will remain closed until the end of the project because of equipment movement.
The Soldier Piles (I-Beams) are being drilled 50 feet into the ground and will be covered with concrete. This will be the main support for the hilltop. Now, the crane has been moved from the bottom of the hill to the top in order to complete the work it performs.
This Saturday, March 8th, there will be excessive drilling between 9 a.m. and 3 p.m. This is unfortunately necessary in order to get soil samples for the geological study that must be done in order to get the permit from the City of Los Angeles (don’t ask!!!). The City has expressed their appreciation of our patience through this mess.
