Updated timeline for Chelten Hills sinkhole repair

Cheltenham commissioner Irv Brockington, Ward 7, recently posted an updated timeline for the Chelten Hills Drive sinkhole repair:

Seravalli Contractors, Inc. has completed underground work and replacement of the culvert floor. Workers are currently drilling beams into the ground so that shoring can be installed, allowing for the area to be excavated to replace the culvert wall. The drilling of the beams is expected to be completed midweek the week of January 9, and excavation will begin shortly afterwards. Excavation is expected to take approximately 2-3 weeks, at which point the damaged culvert wall can be removed, and the contractor can form and pour a new wall. The new wall will have to cure for ten days before the excavated area can be filled in. Public Works is anticipating that the work will be completed sometime in mid-March.
