1/15/18 Weekly Update

The Bridge Keeps Piling On! Last week we were busy setting and casting another pair of soldier pile columns, carrying out rock prep on two column footings, and performing shoring and prep work for our next round of soldier pile drilling. In addition to this we performed a closure pour along the section of precast panels we placed at the beginning of the month and began drilling in a column footing anchor.

This week we plan to finish forming and pouring a section of cap beam, install a pair of footing anchors in our next column footing, form and pour a column footing, and prepare to demo out the next section of existing trestle. We also plan to form and pour another section of sidewalk and curb on the south end of the project, as well as continue soldier pile drilling rock prep on the north end.

We do have below freezing temperatures in the forecast for this weekend, so we recommend leaving a faucet running to help avoid frozen pipes.

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

  • Addresses 1454 Water St. and above (including 200 Wiley St) should be accessed from the north
  • Addresses 1446 and below should be accessible from the south.

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

1/8/18 Weekly Update

The Soldier Piles March Onward! After we thawed out from the holiday break we had a very productive week on Water St. We flew in a set of structural steel columns and edge beams, and five more precast panels, which added another 30’ to the new trestle. We also cast four soldier piles in concrete, installed and backfilled underground utilities, and formed up and poured concrete in a soldier pile wall column.

This week we plan on forming and pouring a column footing and section of cap beam, tensioning the newly placed precast panels, and performing rock prep around our next set of column footings.

We do have below freezing temperatures in the forecast, so we recommend leaving a faucet running to help avoid frozen pipes.

1/2/18 Weekly Update

Happy New Year from Water St.! We hope you all had a wonderful holiday break. There was minimal activity on site last week due to the holidays. We had a limited crew come in briefly to prepare our drilling equipment for maintenance and perform some jobsite housekeeping.
 
We have a pretty busy week ahead of us though! We will be setting H-piles in the 24” sockets we drilled before the holiday break, set steel columns and edge beams on top of the concrete footings we poured prior to the break, get another series of precast panels placed, and form and pour our next set of column footings.
 
As we continue to experience sporadic, below freezing temperatures we recommend leaving a faucet running to help avoid frozen pipes.

12/18/17 Weekly Update

When it Rains it Pours! We had a very productive week in the rain of forming and pouring concrete; including pouring a section of cap beam, a longitudinal closure, and two column footings. In addition to this we continued to install utilities under the new trestle, performed rock prep around our next set of column footings, and continued demo work of the old trestle foundation. We’ve also got our drill back on site and have started drilling our next cycle of 24” rock sockets for the soldier pile wall.

This week we plan to continue drilling this series of 24” rock sockets, perform rock prep and demolition around our next set of column footings, and prepare our next section of soldier pile wall for concrete placement.

As we begin to experience colder temperatures we recommend leaving a faucet running to help avoid frozen pipes.

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

  • Addresses 1454 Water St. and above (including 200 Wiley St) should be accessed from the north

The Bridge Moves Onward! We made the most of the good weather this week and launched our next 36 feet of bridge panels, began rock prep for our next set of column footings, and disassembled another 20 foot span of old trestle.

This week we plan on forming and pouring our next length of cap beam and column footings, resume drilling soldier pile sockets, and continue rock prep for our soldier piles. In addition to this we plan on tensioning the newly placed bridge panels and continuing demolition work of the old trestle foundation.
