Progress visible at mini park
Holyoke was abuzz with excitement when residents began to notice blocklayers at work on the mini park at the intersection of Interocean Avenue and Denver Street last week.
Day by day, less of the old facade is visible, as more progress is made. Blocklayers from CCF Masonry LLC, located in Denver, continue to work on the project this week, with support from City Superintendent Mark Brown and City employees. Once finished, block will cover the entire north wall of Scheunemann’s and will encase each of the vertical columns, giving the park a fresh, new look.
Brown said that once the block has been laid, the majority of the remaining work at the mini park will be completed by City employees. That includes pouring concrete and completing the roofing for the structure.
The City has received a bid to install lighting inside the structure from Fetzer Electric.
