The concrete being poured for new sidewalks at the corner of Lebanon and Main streets is being treated extremely well this winter. In order for the newly-poured concrete to cure correctly, construction crews must baby it with a heating blanket. The sidewalks at three corners of that section will be one of the last tasks of White Construction.
“That’s where the concrete work really has to happen,” Kevin Krulik, Lebanon city engineer, said. “Basically, we’ve got two to three days of concrete work on each corner. Normally, those can happen simultaneously but given the temperatures and the fact that we’ve got to use ground heaters to keep the subgrade thawed, it can’t happen concurrently.” New, decorative fencing for the new landscape beds along Washington Street will be installed soon, too.
