Hersheypark, Hershey, PA

Hersheypark and Campground sustained catastrophic rising and run off river water damage in 2011 related to the effects of Tropical Storm Lee. Similar to the issues encountered on the Six Flags Over Georgia project, the prime concern was the potential for contact touch and inhalation hazards for patrons upon opening of the facilities. Project Management and Clerk of the Works services were provided to manage the efforts of a national restoration contractor during the recovery efforts. Significant to the scheduling issues for the work was the park’s desire to remain open on weekends. Additionally, ‘sold out’ bookings for the Campground and RV Park for regionally sponsored events dictated a fast track time line, which was driven by LMS to overcome the damages and restore occupancy.
