Reston Association recently sent an update on the status of the Lake Thoreau Pool with the following information:
Work will be performed Monday through Friday starting no earlier than 7 a.m. and no later than 7 p.m. Weekend work is not anticipated but will be communicated in advance should it be deemed necessary. Noise levels will vary and will be at their greatest during the first few months of the project during the site work and demolition phase. Heavy machinery, dump trucks, jackhammers, and heavy drilling should be expected.
Heavy machinery will then perform selective demolition and site grading for two to three months, followed by installation of structural elements—including retaining wall foundations, concrete piers, and stormwater pipes—over the next three to four months. Construction of the new pool basins and deck, parking lot, retaining walls, sidewalks, fencing, and bathhouse addition will require an additional five to six months. Final clean-up, inspections closeout, and punch list fulfillment will occur before RA takes control of the facility and installs public art and maintenance equipment.
A preconstruction notification mailer will be sent to all nearby property owners two weeks in advance of mobilization. Project status reports, as well as associated project documents, will be updated monthly on the RA website under the “capital projects” subsection titled “Lake Thoreau Pool Project.” Project videos, as well as RA News newsletter segments, will be provided on a quarterly basis. On-site signage will also be deployed that will have information resources and contact information.
If you have any questions, concerns, or complaints leading up to or during the project, please contact the RA Capital Projects Department at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 703-435-6556.
