Blazing a Trail

Filed under: Pecan Grove — knewman @ 9:55 am

This set of pictures follows some perspectives through the various stages of road construction.  Where there was forest, the progression is dramatic.

  

North view of drive just after going over the hill toward the ranch house.

  

View east from the ranch house going toward the senior center.  Note the opening in the trees.

    

This view is from the mouth of the circle drive at the senior center and looking west toward the ranch house.  The leaning tree at the center of each photo will help you get your bearings on these pics.   tgh

More Road Work

Filed under: Pecan Grove — knewman @ 4:44 pm

Lots of work on the road. We can’t drive on it for another week, give or take a few days, so we are driving between the first two rows of trees. They brought cement yesterday and made a lot of dust as they tilled and mixed. I’m sure that Terry has a better and more detailed report but he can add his two cents later. kch

Lime is applied to expansive clay soils to stabilize it. Rock lime is dumped from a hopper truck on road surface then spread with a dozer. tgh

Lime and the dry soil is tilled with a large rotary mixer to an average depth of 8″. Then water is applied to make the lime ‘pop’ and permeate the soil. After several hours it is well compacted with a roller. tgh
