Parking Lot Upgrade: In Progress 2

June 28, 2015

On Monday June 22, the pavement from our parking lot was removed and activities commenced to provide the base for a new asphalt surface.


Preparations included:

  • Building a gravel base to suitable depth to allow proper drainage of underground water and support for the new surface,
  • Installation of a weeping tile drain in the centre of the two roadways closest to the church,
  • Removal of some defective earth in two locations to provide a solid base to support the new surface,
  • Replacement of a collapsed drainage pipe running from beside the church office stairway to the street
  • Replacement of broken curbs around the lot
  • Replacement of the main parking lot entrance curbs
