Piedmont Construction Updates

Pool Updates

  Piedmont has been gearing up in preparation for summer fun with the new Piedmont Pool. Unfortunately, according to the City of Piedmont Public Works Director Daniel Gonzales, the pool has been delayed and is no longer set to open next summer.

 Steel framework will be placed in the concrete in preparation for building construction. “The project will start to go vertical in the next month,” Gonzales said.
  The pool’s construction has been delayed by difficulties working with PG&E and other utilities companies,  Gonzales said.

  Additionally, construction has been delayed by the discovery of two century-old fuel tanks. “You have to have a removal plan that is removed by Alameda County Hazardous Waste, they’re going to Arizona,” Gonzales said. “It creates out of sequence work, and we do work around it but it does present a challenge.”

  The retaining wall has been poured for the pool, and the construction crew has begun work installing the footing for the buildings, which are expected to start going up in December, Gonzales said.

Witter Updates

Witter is still projected to be finished by February 5 next year, according to the PUSD November 10 update.

 Witter construction continues and is on track. The new scoreboard is still being worked on. A new baserock is being trucked in to update the field, according to the November 10 PUSD update.
