Paving Binder Coat

Nov 26, 2022

Just after Thanksgiving, the first layer of paving was applied to the parking lot.

This step includes patching the parking lot on the VFW land, and the bottom binder coat of asphalt on the municipal land.
Finishing the parking lot with the top coat, seal-coating and striping will be completed in the spring of 2023.
The north west service area has not yet been paved because water, sewer and gas connections need to be installed first.

Inside the building, the drywall is being taped prior to painting.  Tile is being installed in the bathrooms, and some areas of ceiling are being hung.
