The sidewalk and retention pond rehabilitation work on the southwest side of Jordan Elementary has been completed. That sidewalk is now reopened for use. The work took longer than initially projected due to various construction, scheduling, and supply issues.
The sidewalk failure behind Jordan Elementary was due to an underlying slope failure on the edge of the retention pond; it was more than a typical sidewalk failure. Simply re-pouring the sidewalk would not have fixed the underlying issue. The MUD’s Board of Directors directed the District’s Engineer to find a safe and long-lasting solution. The Engineer performed tests and collected soil samples to determine the reason for the slope failure as well as an optimal repair.
