Progress Update on Drainage Work
Only two days worked this week (Saturday & Monday) due to weather. The crew shut down on 12/19 due to weather and they were already planning to take off next week for the holidays. So, they will resume work on 1/3. At this time, I am projecting they have about two weeks of work left to complete the project.
