Beginning Oct. 17, the Nature Center balcony at Bays Mountain Park will be closed for improvements.
The balcony is the original, 1971 balcony and while the foundation and flooring is in good shape, the walls are in a state of disrepair and are in need of some attention.
Inland Construction will be mobilizing on Oct. 17 and during this week the company will be power-washing the concrete in preparation for the sealant. Once the concrete is resurfaced, Red Cedar will be installed over the concrete to prevent weathering.
Bays Mountain Park will close off the walkway behind the Nature Center beginning the week of Oct. 24. Scaffolding will be used to work on the underside of the balcony, but will be removed on Friday evenings. The walkway will reopen for pedestrians on the weekends.
Inland Construction is estimating the improvements will be complete by Christmas. Funding for this project comes from $125,000 in American Rescue Plan Act (ARPA) funds.
