4/15/19 Weekly Update

The Punchlist Is Nearing Completion! Last week we continued to knock items off our project punchlists! We also installed a water service connection, continued installing the water main heat trace system, removed sign covers from the southern half of the project, removed a section of old sewer main from under the bridge, and began demobilizing equipment and material from site.

This week we are planning to finish installing the water main heat trace system, finish installing the water service connections, wrap up our punchlist work, and continue to remove nonessential equipment and material from site. We will be coming up on a brief shut down until paving commences sometime in May. Through vehicle access will remain closed to preserve the concrete bridge deck and concrete edges from vehicle damage but the sidewalk is open to through pedestrian traffic.

Due to construction activities through vehicle 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 access.
