We Have an Edge Beam! The next two steel columns have been set and the connecting edge beam has been placed and secured.  This edge beam, along with the concrete cap beam that we poured on the east side of the project put the major pieces in place required to launch our next set of concrete trestle panels.  If activities continue to progress as planned, we will have our next 6 trestle panels placed before the end of the month.

Along with preparing for launching trestle panels later this month have continued removing existing trestle sections and doing excavation for future footings to the north.

The Demo Continues!  We had another good week of progress on Water St despite the heavy rains last week. Lots of activity is underway, mainly focused on the north end of the project.  Another span of trestle has been removed, a footing has been excavated and we have started forming/reinforcing the concrete wall that will connect the soldier piles we have been installing on the east side of the project.

Work is also wrapping up on Tongass Ave. and with the good weather today we got the concrete sidewalk poured.  Once the sidewalk cures we will be removing the temporary traffic control and wrapping up our work down on Tongass.

We are Drilling! The weather has gotten better and we are back to full speed drilling.  Over the last week we completed two more 24” rock sockets and have started on a third.  Along with drilling our 24” sockets, we finished drilling the 8” holes that will anchor the temporary utility pole bases.  With the utility pole anchors complete final preparation can start for the utility pole move between 8/7 and 8/12.

Also this week we are starting utility work on Tongass Ave below Parnell St.  This work will tie in the storm water system on Water St. with the system under Tongass Ave.  As part of this work several sidewalk panels will be removed and several on street parking spots will be blocked.  The work is expected to take less than 3 weeks and access to driveways and pedestrian access will remain open during all work.
