Rubber Mulch Replacement – Status Update

Project planning and design considerations are underway. The project scope is broader than the removal of rubber mulch with the replacement of wood mulch.  The different materials have different drainage and depth requirements to maintain the same critical fall height.  Additionally, each playground is unique in its layout and design. Capital Planning hired a consultant in July 2017 to assist MPS in designing for this project.  This consultant, SAS Associates, was responsible for the design and construction administration of the removal and replacement of rubber mulch of the playgrounds for Duluth Public Schools. We anticipate staging of this schedule will be set so that construction begins during the 2018 summer break.
