[ARCHIVED] Noise Anticipated as Pilings Installed in Lake Ballinger

UPDATE: As of Thursday, July 29, the contractor believes this work will start Monday. They will attempt to finish that same day. 

The waterfront project at Lake Ballinger is underway to install a new fishing pier, floating boat dock and boat ramp. As part of the fishing pier project, pilings are currently being placed into the water. The pilings will act as support for the future structure.

 

On Thursday, July 29, a large mechanical hammer will be on-site to begin the “proofing” process that involves hammering to vibrate the ground to place the pilings. It is anticipated that this machine will generate hammering noise for nearby residents.  This work is anticipated to begin about 10 a.m. Thursday and continue through the afternoon.  This work will resume Monday morning and conclude Monday afternoon. No work is planned at the site on Friday and through the weekend.

 

As a reminder, the boat launch area is closed for construction during July and August, which is when state and federal agencies allow in-water work as it is the least impactful time for downstream fish. Upland work will conclude in September and this project is expected to be completed in the fall.
