At the end of August the County put out an update that said “the work in Gateway Park is on hold to deal with some poor soil conditions and locate some utilities“. There’s a lot more to it than that which hasn’t been mentioned. A major problem has arisen that is causing a lot of the delay and may be why they went ahead and restriped Hainesville Rd as if the new shoulder won’t be used for awhile. They’ve known all along that there is a huge 30″ high-pressure gas line buried beneath the area that the new configuration of Hainesville will pass over. This pipe is several decades old and probably getting pretty rusty by now. Pouring a bed of gravel over it and adding excessive load from vehicles may cause some real serious problems. The same pipe passes under the existing Hainesville Road but at that point it is much deeper underground since the grade is much higher.
