Narragansett Dock Works staged equipment and materials for repair and surfacing of the causeway at Salter Grove that leads out to the breakwater on Wednesday, August 14th. Vehicles should not enter this section of the roadway.
DPW crew spreading gravel to ensure proper drainage of the play area.
Next, a layer of engineered wood fiber was added over geotextile to create a safe play surface. Wheel chairs can travel over the fiber, once compacted.
Installation of the new playground equipment at Salter Grove was mostly completed on Friday, July 19th, but it is far from safe to play on. A wood fiber play surface and ADA access path have yet to be installed.
Visitors should not enter the construction area until City officials declare it safe to do so.
The City of Warwick’s Department of Public Works began site preparation for the new playground at Salter Grove on Monday, June 17th.
This long-awaited event is in anticipation of the arrival of new playground equipment in early July. It also fulfills the City’s cost-share agreement under a $100,000 Recreation Grant from RIDEM.
