Cutting down trees and digging up dirt in Amalyn

A trench for a fence

 Last week I saw them digging narrow trenches where they will be putting in a silt fence. They always do this shortly before construction starts, so that is the sign that they will be building here soon.


They are opening up a new area of the WMAL radio transmitter site for housing. Yesterday they were cutting down trees to clear the area. The heavy equipment they use makes quick work of it and they made it at least most of the way down the field.  This is the part of the project that is closes to Interstate 495, from Renita Lane to Greentree Road.

In addition to taking out trees they have started grading more of the field. In the background is Renita Lane. Renita will be extended through the site all the way to Greentree Road. When completed there will be over 300 single family houses and townhouses in this 75 acre development. You can read all my posts on this subject.

It looks like they are building another water retention pond. Currently the banks are above the surrounding ground so water won't flow into it, but I wouldn't be surprised if they built up the ground to be even with the top of the bank.
