Work is moving forward as the stacks of blocks continue to grow and they are piled on top of each other in preparation of being transported to the port and positioned as needed to expand on the existing breakwater. Cement trucks running back and forth from the location is an almost constant activity and we have seen the hustle and bustle of workers every day right up through Christmas Eve and they were back at it the day after Christmas.

Remember, this work is not happening at the pier itself. That will come soon enough, when they have enough of the blocks completed to begin transporting them to their final resting place as part of the Home Port. This work is being done in the large open space to the North across the road from the Sonoran Sun Resort. If you take the old road to Cholla Bay (extension of the new road past the Convention Center) you will drive right by the site. Be careful if driving down that way as there really are cement trucks flying back and forth at all hours, even past sundown.

They are building a permanent structure on the site as well but I have not confirmed exactly how that structure will be used. I’m assuming that by next month’s newsletter, I will have more information to share. For now, we can all just sit back and watch as the project moves forward.
