Work to dismantle items from tennis and track facilities begins; surveying of local properties to start shortly
As it prepares to break ground early in the new year for an on-campus football stadium, early prep work that does not require permits from the city of New Orleans is about to begin.
Work to dismantle moveable items from both the tennis stadium and the track and field facility is underway.
The university has alerted neighbors that surveys of some 100 homes in the area will begin shortly. The majority of the homes will have their exterior conditions documented. Interior surveys will be conducted on houses immediately adjacent to the stadium site.
Tulane says the test piling process should begin around December 18 and rigs to install the piles should be in place December 21. Testing will involve two different types of piles, timber probe piles and concrete probe piles filled with grout.
The university says the test pile work is planned only on weekdays between 8am and 5pm.
