RE: DRAIN LINE REPAIR UPDATE
Dear East River Cooperators:
Unfortunately the job is not going as fast as I had wished. We were supposed to start pouring concrete tomorrow and finish it by Wednesday, but we have found another piece of concrete floor cracked, four feet by eight feet.
Therefore, we have to take out that piece of concrete floor, which will be done tomorrow and Wednesday.
I am hoping to pour new concrete on Thursday and Friday. Then we will have to wait for the concrete to dry before we put down new tiles. Only when they dry we will be able to re-connect the washing machines.
I believe that the most optimistic time for the laundry room to be re-open is the weekend of May 22-24.
This job has been very difficult and very hard to estimate because we did not know what we would find when we started digging.
I will continue to keep you updated.
