|Pipe Replacement Planned at Antioch Park|
Replacement of a stormwater pipe under the main drive at Antioch Park, 6501 Antioch, Merriam, is expected to cause some delays for park visitors between Nov. 18 and 21.
Work on the pipe will begin Nov. 18 and is expected to take three to four days to complete. One lane of traffic will be maintained for park access during this process. Employees and patrons will be able to get in and out of the park, but some inconvenience and short delays are anticipated.
The pipe replacement project is part of improvements and renovations which began on Oct. 20. In all, $1.2 million in improvements is planned at Antioch Park over the next seven months.
Work at the park follows the preparation and approval earlier this year of a new master plan for the facility calling for $4 million in improvements to be completed in four phases. The current project represents Phase I and is expected to be completed by June 1, 2004. Development of the new master plan for Antioch Park and other JCPRD parks was a recommendation of the District's 20-year Master Action Plan (MAP 2020). Work on the Antioch Park Master Plan took place between late November 2002 and mid-April 2003.
