In October we anticipated blasting operations would start for our new field house / wellness center between the Randolph High School and the Randolph Middle School, but this work was delayed until recently.
Starting this week, the Blasting Contractor, J. Fritz Inc., will move equipment on site. The blasting zone is located between both the Randolph Middle School and Randolph High School on the site of the old field house and is a safe distance from both buildings. All blasting operations will be done in strict accordance with all local, State and Federal laws, and safety regulations.
On or about December 27, 2019 (Friday) blasting will commence and may continue through March 2020. Blasting may take place Monday through Saturday between the hours of 7:00 am and 5:00 pm. There are many safety procedures that will be utilized prior to every blast and they include, but are not limited to:
Blasting will be at non-damaging levels; however, it is normal for the blasts to be heard and / or felt, sometimes for considerable distances depending upon the local geology and weather conditions.
We have been coordinating with multiple parties including our Township code enforcement (Fire Marshall), Township Manager and the County.
If you have any questions, please feel free to email Gerald Eckert at email@example.com.
