I get asked frequently about the large amount of dirt being moved to create the large hole at the Piedmont Triad Research Park (PTRP) near the northwest interchange of I-52 and B-40. The PTRP Master Plan (click here for link to the PTRP Master Plan) designed by downtown based Stimmel Associates, PA has a large Master Stormwater System integrated into the design of the Central District. See Map Below.
Expected completion is summer of 2013.

I also took this amateur panaramic photo of the whole project using an app on my cell phone. Click on the link below to see it.
