Repair or remove boardwalks in park on Block 6
A 7.5' x 3' long boardwalk will be removed from between the Miller House (HS-14), which is not in use, and the Sprigg House (HS-11). The boardwalk is no longer in use and is rotting. To eliminate the potential safety hazard, the boardwalk will be removed and clean fill will be installed.

An angled section of boardwalk behind the Maintenance office (Dubois House, HS-15) has rotten runners and loose boards. Runners were dipped oak and have rotted away from the center out, but are being replaced with pressure-treated pine to last longer. The boards will be replaced in-kind with oak. This was an emergency project to eliminate a safety hazard. No ground disturbance will occur.
