Next Phase of Sem Driveway/Parking Lot Project

Yesterday and today were more busy days at the PRC Seminary for the new driveway/parking lot project. Yesterday Jay Kuiper was busy with more excavating work, clearing up along both sides of the new driveway and spreading new topsoil in preparation for the landscaping and new lighting to come.

Today bright and early Fliers trenching service was on site with their boring machine and trencher, to run the conduit for the electrical lines to be run to the new lights in front of Sem and along the drive and to the new sign at the new entrance on Scenic River Dr. Tomorrow they will set the concrete posts for the lights.

Kleyn Electric will follow up with the actual electrical work (that’s Nick Kleyn in the picture below coordinating the work with Fliers). There was another Kleyn electrician who showed up today too – to repair the line to the current sign, which was severed in some earlier excavating work. As Kleyn would say, “No worries, mate!”

By the way, we are hoping to keep our existing sign along Ivanrest Ave., so that we still have a “presence” along that busy road. And, in case you are wondering, we will keep our current address as well. That is making our secretary quite happy. 🙂

The other phase that started today was the removal of the old drive – all completed by this afternoon! Jay K. was busy on this as well, with Kamps trucking hauling the old asphalt away for recycling. More topsoil will be brought in tomorrow and this area will be seeded with new grass.

Next Monday they are hoping to put the finish coat of asphalt on the driveway and parking lot, which will be grand!

Thanks for following us along on this project. Stop in to see us this summer and take in the “new” view!
