Woodall Rodgers Deck Park Construction Has a Hiccup?

An alert FrontBurnervian sends the below photo from the construction site of the Woodall park. Yesterday he noticed a big hole in one of the retaining walls. Water poured therefrom. Today, part of the wall has been demolished.

Yesterday morning the hole pictured was about 60% smaller and it looked like it was not a planned issue. This morning the hole is significantly larger and there is still a drainage line pumping out water from the wall. I’m no engineer, but I say something is screwed up.

I’ve got an e-mail in to the Woodall park folks to see what’s up.

UPDATE: Turns out, all is going according to plan. What they’re doing is demolishing the old retaining walls, which is where the support beams for the deck will go. This isn’t new construction they’re taking down. We should see beams going up in the first or second week of August.
