County councilors, members of the media and county officials got an up close and personal view of the Airport Basin project site on Friday afternoon.
Split into two one-hour tours, those who attended were driven around the construction site and given an update on contractor Hensel Phelp’s progress.
Engineering Project Manager Dan Erickson led the tours, while Project Manager David Apple also helped answer questions and gave briefings on various parts of the project.
Councilors Nona Bowman, Robert Gibson and Michael Wheeler attended the first tour, along with Capital Projects Manager and Facilities Director Anne Laurent, County Administrator Max Baker and Public Works Director Kyle Zimmerman.
The tours began at the entrance to the project on Eastgate Drive.
At the beginning of the tour, Erickson pointed out the water and gas tie ins that are being worked on. For now, there is a huge hole in the ground where crews are working on the tie ins, which is cordoned off for safety reasons.
So far, the retaining wall that was near completion a few weeks ago is now 100 percent complete.
