11/19/18 Weekly Update

We’ve Started Building The Abutment! Last week we formed and poured the footing of the new trestle abutment! In addition to this we removed an old utility vault, excavated the new abutment retaining wall, continued installing conduit under the new trestle, finished installing the next section of steel and timber bridge rail, and began forming the last column footing.

Over this shortened work week, we are planning to begin drilling soldier pile wall tie-back anchors, form the next portion of the trestle abutment, as well as finish the last platform footing form work.

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.

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