Soil Sampling in the Urban Reserve

Sampling Spots

As work continues on the Burlington Bike Path Rehabilitation, the City is preparing to collect soil samples for Phase 1b rehab within Waterfront Park (near Penny Lane) and along the east side of the path beginning at the north end of Urban Reserve up to North Beach Campground. There are 26 sampling locations which have been demarcated by wooden stakes at the project site. On Monday and Tuesday, January 11th and 12th, the drilling crew will be on-site taking samples in order to characterize the soil for future reuse or disposal. The path will remain open to the public for use during this time, though crews may need to narrow their work zones to a single lane at times using orange traffic cones. Please be aware of this work and use extra caution in these areas while you enjoy the Bike Path next week!
