Drain Commission Construction Taking Place In Hogbacks Area

August 25, 2016 | Amy McMillan

Over the next few months, park users in the Hogbacks and Elba area will notice some construction work taking place. This work is part of the Genesee County Drain Commission Water Supply System Contract S.5005.  There are a few things we want our park visitors to be aware of.

  1. Contractors will be placing orange construction fencing along both sides of the temporary easement during construction activities.  Please watch for trail closed signs. They will be placed along the fence line every 400 feet at the beginning and end of the path.
  2. When the contractor  is working within existing trail crossings, they will back-fill the water-main trench with compacted back-fill and restore the existing trail crossings to a condition that will allow for equestrian uses as soon as possible at the end of the day.
  3. The contractor will place lighted barricades, fencing and trail closed signs at all trail crossing protecting equestrians from active construction areas, open trenches or other areas that would be harmful for equestrian use.
