TSC latest – Site work continues

It might be interesting, but construction sites are dangerous so the public should keep back when taking a look, Bast Hatfield officials said Friday.

Project manager Jordan Flohr said he understands the public’s curiosity over the project and work being done, but added people should look from a distance.

“We might have to put up some fences at some point because people just walk right up (to the site),” Flohr said. Some just walk up into the site to take a look, he said.

Those stopping by to check out the work are asked to do so from a distance due to safety concerns, Flohr said.

Initial work preparing the site for the Granville Tractor Supply Co. off Quaker Street will continue for about two weeks, Flohr said.

The culvert pipe buried at the site needs several additional feet of coverage before the area will be up to the level it must reach before construction can begin.

“We’ve brought in over 4,700 yards of fill so far,” Flohr said, looking at his wall calendar and doing some quick calculations based on the number of truckloads dumped at the site since work began.

The ground at the site must be brought up several feet.

“We’ve got to get (the ground) up to that ‘masonary line’,” he said indicating a line where the floor in the existing building runs.

A retaining wall will be built to hold in the higher ground of the site, that work was expected to start the week of June 6.

With the site filled in, Flohr said people could expect visual evidence of progress soon after as walls and framing start to go up. “Once we get those guys in here you’ll really see it go,” he said.

Although just the first step in a much longer process, the work was proceeding on schedule, he said.

When completed, the newly raised ground south of the existing building will become part of the outside display area.

The existing building will add approximately 10,000 square feet with a large outdoor display area typical of most Tractor Supply Co. locations.
