I have been trying to update the progress of the development up on the mesa on a monthly basis. The pace of blasting has seemed to have slowed down some, but it has picked up in the past week. Sometimes I'm not sure just what the hell they are doing. At one place they blasted, installed sewer lines, and now I noticed new blast holes about 20' away. Huh?!? You're going to blast right next to newly installed pipe?!?
The rock pile has continued to grow, and as I predicted a few months ago, they have mobilized a rock crusher on site. They have been creating aggregate for the past few days.
I have walked through the construction site on Sundays when they're not working and the entire landscape has certainly changed. Here are before and after pics from the far southwest corner of the development.
