here for construction photos.
The first stage is
starting on Sunday, 31 October 1999.
During an approximate
2 week period, the Fountain will be shut down
An engineering consultant will examine every aspect
of the Fountain
and determine what requires replacement. The consultant
is Wayne C. Kelly,
P.E. of M.V. Cummings Engineers Inc.
located at 6501
Arlington Expressway # B211, Jacksonville, FL 32211
Bob Baughman, Chief
of Parks Maintenance says
with a little luck,
the Fountain will be up and running by the next
Home Game. The actual construction and repairs will not begin
until after the
last home game of the season. Bob also said that
and repair will include the surrounding walkway and
he says that the
final project will be "Impressive".
Once again thanks
to the Parks Department
and Bob, for the information
and the determination,
on the City's part, to make sure that the
Fountain will be
a Center Piece of the Southbank. This project will
ensure that the
Fountain is Operating properly for the years to come, and
that visitors to
the Fountain will experience a breathtaking view.
