1/22/19 Weekly Update

The Platforms Are Up! Last week we installed the last of the four suspended utility platforms under the bridge, connected the new sewer system to the permanent system, installed five street light poles, began installing the last section of conduit under the bridge, formed and poured the last longitudinal closure pour, and installed the new stairs at the bottom of Parnell St.

This week we are planning to finish installing the conduit under the new bridge, resume switching homes over to the new electrical system, tie in the storm sewer and water lines to the existing system, and install pedestrian railing at the utility platforms.

As we begin to get into the cooler winter temperatures we recommend leaving a faucet running when freezing temperatures are expected to help prevent frozen pipes.

Due to construction activities through pedestrian access is currently blocked.  Until it can be reopened as construction activities allow:

  • Addresses 1608 Water St. and below (including 200 Wiley St) should be accessed from the south
  • Addresses 1610 and above should be accessed from the north.

Water St. is currently closed for through vehicle and pedestrian access.

We Made It To The Abutment! Last week we placed the last of the 114 precast panels on the trestle section! In addition to this we began tying in the new sewer and storm system into the existing systems, continued installing street lighting conduit under the new bridge, formed and poured a transverse closure pour, and installed the next section of post tensioning bar in the last section of panels.

This week we are planning to post tension the last section of panels, finish tying the new sewer and storm systems into the existing systems, begin installing the street light poles along the project, continue installing utilities and backfill behind the abutment, and install the last utility platform under the bridge.

As we begin to get into the cooler winter temperatures we recommend leaving a faucet running when freezing temperatures are expected to help prevent frozen pipes.

The Steel Is In! Last week we placed the last of the trestle’s steel columns and edge beams! In addition to this we began installing the last of the suspended sewer and storm system under the bridge, installed a sewer service, continued installing heat trace and street lighting conduit under the bridge, and began welding together the last major section of suspended water main!

This week we are planning to set last precast panels! Once this is complete we will have placed a total of 114 panels on the trestle section of the project! In addition to this we are planning to install the buried sewer and water main sections behind the bridge abutment, begin backfilling the abutment and retaining wall, and install the last of the buried storm drain system.

As we begin to get into the cooler winter temperatures we recommend leaving a faucet running when freezing temperatures are expected to help prevent frozen pipes.

1/2/19 Weekly Update

The Wall Has Been Backfilled! Before we shut down for a much-needed holiday break we finished backfilling the last section of the soldier pile wall! In addition to this we finished tying the Wiley St. Stairs into the new bridge structure, continued installing heat trace and street lighting conduit under the new bridge, installed an electrical vault, finished the buried conduit run on the north end of the project through the new bridge abutment, and installed a fire hydrant. We also drilled and installed the final two soldier pile wall tie back anchors!

This week we are planning to set the last set of the structural steel! We are also planning to install the last of the buried water, sewer, and storm pipes behind the bridge abutment; test and grout the two tie-back anchors that were installed before the break, continue installing heat trace and street lighting conduit under the new bridge, and begin installing the next section of suspended sewer and water main under the bridge.

As we begin to get into the cooler winter temperatures we recommend leaving a faucet running when freezing temperatures are expected to help prevent frozen pipes.

We’re Back To Launching Panels! Last week we installed the second to last set of precast panels! This added approximately 36 feet to the new trestle and leaves approximately 30 feet to go! We also installed approximately 100 feet of buried conduit on the north end of the project, poured the bridge abutment retaining wall, began installing the last utility platform, and installed sanitary sewer connections under the new bridge.

This week we are planning to finish installing the underground conduit run on the north end of the project, set an electrical and communications vault at the north bridge abutment, install two more soldier pile wall tie-back anchors, begin installing communication lines under the new bridge, and get the project site ready for our holiday shutdown.

As we begin to get into the cooler winter temperatures we recommend leaving a faucet running when freezing temperatures are expected to help prevent frozen pipes.

Due to construction activities through pedestrian access is currently blocked.  Until it can be reopened as construction activities allow:

  • Addresses 1528 Water St. and below (including 200 Wiley St) should be accessed from the south
  • Addresses 1600 and above should be accessed from the north.

The Bridge Is Starting To Heat Up! Last week we installed and activated three electrical transformers on the new bridge and began switching homes over to the new system! We also installed a sewer manhole structure, backfilled the next section of soldier pile wall, began installing underground conduit on the north end of the project, and set the next section of structural steel. This leaves only one more section of structural steel to go!

This week we are planning to place the next set of six precast panels, pour the abutment retaining wall, continue installing underground conduit on the north end of the project, and begin installing sewer and storm pipes under the next section of new bridge.

As we begin to get into the cooler winter temperatures we recommend leaving a faucet running when freezing temperatures are expected to help prevent frozen pipes.
