The railway underpass construction site on Rt. 58 appears to have fallen off track.
Village manager Steve Pyles said each hole has to be pre-drilled, then a steel beam is driven into the ground. That has seriously impacted the productivity.
“It’s working, it’s just not going as fast as they were hoping it would,” he said.
In May, a thick layer of clay slowed work because the earth was so dense that the piles weren’t able to be driven as quickly.
Pyles said workers are only allowed to drive two piles a day, but that’s still 50 percent or less than their normal productivity for pile driving.
“It has lengthened the project,” he said.
Pyles said he highly doubts this project will be finished this calendar year.
