Construction on the Great Northern Detention Pond got underway yesterday and should last approximately 9 months. Access to the site will be limited during construction, but there should always be a way to get from the pedestrian bridge to the neighborhood either via Shoal Creek or Great Northern.
If the neighborhood has any concerns during construction, please don't hesitate to contact us. Darryl Haba is the project manager and the best person to contact. His number is 974-7205.
