A Pile of Piles
The contractors working in the VA Footprint are in the test pile driving phase at present.
Still, according to one source, neighbors came out last week along S. Rocheblave on the footprint border as the giant concrete piles (between the visible metal piles) were being pounded into place due to the noticeable noise and vibration.
But this is just the start. In October or November of this year, the true pile driving will start.
And the VA's contractors will drive "a lot of piles" - 5,500 piles, in fact.
