Skaters looking to blow off some steam at the skate park will have to find another way to entertain themselves until Friday, at least.
Beginning today through Thursday, the skate park will be closed because crews will be taking care of some caulking at the site. Closure signs will be posted at the park.
The caulking work is being done by California Skate Parks Inc., the company that constructed the park in front of Mesa Public Library.
“Dick (McIntyre, Parks Division Manager) and I did a walk-through about three months ago and noticed the cracks,” Community Services Director Stephani Johnson said. “At that time, the weather was still cold and it wasn’t an appropriate time for them to come and do the repairs. This is really the first opportunity they’ve had to do them,” she explained.
Johnson also said that the work being done on the park is part of the walk-through and punch list items associated with the construction of the skate park. Johnson describes the cracks being repaired as hairline cracks.
She said that she’s not sure whether they are structural or not. In addition, she said that the damage does not pose any danger to the skaters, because they are hairline cracks.
