Woodridge Village Construction Near Standstill

Construction progress on the Woodridge Village site has nearly ground to a crawl. After:

…Perry Homes should rename Woodridge Village the Village of the Damned (after the 1960 horror movie). What possesses these people!

Construction Update

The development is reportedly still months behind schedule. That may have something to do with more than 200 lawsuits against the developer.

My last update on Woodridge construction was 18 days ago and little has changed since then according to Elm Grove resident Jeff Miller who tracks construction progress on the site.

According to Miller, “The culvert across Taylor Gully and cement structure around it are complete and ready for the road crew to pave over it.”

“The clearing continues in the northern section. More trees are laying down and turning brown. I have seen some activity like preliminary marking of the future detention pond N1,” says Miller.

“The berm, swale and backslope interceptor structures seem to be complete on the southern border with Elm Grove,” continued Miller. “They have sprayed the slopes with a green fertilizer/seed mixture.”

On the plus side, maybe the grass will help prevent more erosion.
