Jack Creek Park project phase I to start

jack creek parkOn or about August 1, 2017 the Anne Arundel County Department of Public Works will start construction of the Jack Creek Park Stockpiling project (Phase I) by moving material from the Idlewilde Dredged Material Placement facility on Idlewilde Road to Jack Creek Park. This material, essentially dried mud and sand that has been dredged from nearby rivers and creeks, will be graded and planted with native trees and shrubs, enhancing the appearance and use of the park. 

This project will have the additional benefit of providing room at the Idlewilde site for more material from future dredging projects, which means we will be able to keep our local waterways navigable. 

The time for completion is 120 consecutive calendar days.  Hours of operation for construction activities are Monday through Friday from 7:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. 

The contractor may also work outside these hours with prior approval of the County. The trucking operations will be adjusted as necessary to avoid conflicts with school bus routes during school opening and closing periods. 

Jack Creek Park will remain open to the public throughout the duration of the project. The Contractor will maintain access to the existing grass parking lot for park patrons, however, public vehicular access beyond this point will be restricted during the construction of this project. 

The construction of this project has been made possible by County Bonds and Department of Natural Resources Waterway Improvement grants. 

Please let me know if you have any questions or need additional information.
