Menlo Park Community Campus project moves forward with utility work

Posted on May 17, 2021 at 10:44 pm by Clay Curtin

Starting Monday, May 24, the construction team will begin utility exploration and excavation throughout the Onetta Harris Community Center parking lot as part of the Menlo Park Community Campus project. The work is expected to last two weeks and public access to Kelly Park and Beechwood School will be maintained.

As recommended for all construction or dig sites, including even small residential projects, the approximate location of underground utilities have been marked. However, underground utilities can still be a hazard for work crews. Ahead of the major construction work planned for the site later in the project, this process will determine the precise location of utility lines. By making a series of small test holes, crews will be able to accurately locate underground lines including the horizontal position, depth, type of line and if there are any existing signs of previous damage.

The work will be completed by Level 10 Construction who is providing advance notification to nearby residents. Since public access to Kelly Park and Beechwood School will remain open, few impacts are expected for residents. You can also download a larger map of the work area.
