CANNELTON - "The Eagles Bluff project is well under way," Perry County Recreation Director Dan Adams told the county parks and recreation board April 9 about the construction of a restroom building-visitors center at the park overlooking the Ohio River.
At the board's last meeting Feb. 27, Adams had mentioned some changes the contractor wanted to make in the project's specifications.
He said Wednesday that he had met with the contractor, Craftsman Construction Co.; the building's architect, Carl Conner of Conner and Associates; the project engineer, Bernardin and Lochmueller; and most of the subcontractors March 4 to discuss those proposals.
"One of the big topics we talked about was the electrical supply," reported Adams. He said the electrical subcontractor wanted to know why the specifications called for the electric lines, which will be underground, to be encased in conduit, as he thought burying the lines directly would be better.
Cannelton Utilities will be responsible for maintaining the lines and they told Adams it would be hard to pull the lines through conduit.
So Parks Board President Edd Ransom told Adams to tell the contractor, "If Cannelton Utilities prefer direct burial and they're going to maintain the lines, do it that way."
But a proposed change in material of the fence along the deck won't be made.
The contractor had wanted to change the tempered glass fence to another material, a change the parks board had opposed.
Adams told the board Wednesday, "We're going to keep what's been spec'ed out for the railing around the deck. It will be a glass rail."
As for another construction project at the park, the erecting of a picnic shelter, Adams said it is "kind of at a standstill now because of the wet weather."
He said he is holding off ordering the shelter kit from Penn Products until Traylor Construction notifies him that it will be dry enough to level the site and pour the concrete pad.
