5/22/17 Water St. Weekly Construction Update

Working in the Rain! We survived the almost 4” of rain we have gotten in the last 48 hours and are continuing to make progress.  Our week was filled with small pickup activities but the progress we made finished our preparation for our next big concrete pour.  Later this week we will pour the next two concrete footings and the section of concrete stub wall.  This pour will allow us to install the next section of steel and the next set of trestle panels.

In addition to construction activities we have started preparation for our next fence move.  Around the start of June we will be moving the construction fences north to allow continued progress.  The north fence will move from 1454 Water St to 1462 Water St and the south fence will move from the Parnell Stairs to 1412 Water St.  Contact will be made with impacted residents and additional updates will be provided as the fence move date firms up.

Water St remains closed for through vehicle access but is open for pedestrian through access along the work zone.  Addresses 1426 Water St. and above can be most easily accessed from the north and address 1418.5 Water St. and below can most easily be accessed from the south.

5/15/17 Water St. Weekly Construction Update

We Have Come a Long Way! Looking back to where we started we really have made a lot of progress.  In under a year we have built a bridge, a retaining wall and have started building a trestle.  Overall we have replaced more than 350 feet of Water St Trestle #2

We had another good week, we didn’t have the major panel launching or drilling activities we had last week but continued to make progress.  Progress has continued both north and south of the work area with another existing trestle span removed, a section of concrete sidewalk poured and additional water and sewer utility work completed.

Activity will continue over the next week.  We will be removing another span of existing trestle and chipping rock and forming 2 more footings.

Water St remains closed for through vehicle access but is open for pedestrian through access along the work zone.  Addresses 1426 Water St. and above can be most easily accessed from the north and address 1418.5 Water St. and below can most easily be accessed from the south.

5/8/17 Water St. Weekly Construction Update

The Bridge Continues to Grow!  Last week’s busy week set us up for another big week this week.  We started the week by bringing our second set of 6 concrete trestle panels to site and lifting them into place on the steel frame we finished last week.  This takes us to almost 75’ of new steel and concrete trestle installed to date.

Along with installing the trestle panels we finished drilling the next 3 24” rock sockets, placed the steel H-piles and cast the piles in concrete.

5/1/17 Water St. Weekly Construction Update

Big Progress on Water St. this Week! We had a great week of progress with multiple large scale activities underway. We started the week by finishing two more trestle footings and setting our second set of structural steel. With the columns and beams in place we also started launching the second set of concrete trestle panels today. These trestle panels should be installed by the middle of this week.

Along with our panel setting activities we had two drills running on site this week.  We had the 4” drill drilling footing anchors and had the 24” drill drilling rock sockets.  By the end of the week we should have the next set of steel H-piles placed and anchors installed in the next two footings.

Water St remains closed for through vehicle access but is open for pedestrian through access along the work zone.  Addresses 1426 Water St. and above can be most easily accessed from the north and address 1418.5 Water St. and below can most easily be accessed from the south.

4/24/17 Water St. Weekly Construction Update

Our Drill is Back Onsite!  We had another productive week and have multiple exciting activities planned for the near future.  We spent the last week working through a number of small items that will allow us to get back to major activities over the next two weeks.  We have poured several sidewalks, curbs and footings, continued chipping rock and removed a section existing trestle.

All of this progress has prepared us to both start drilling 24” rock sockets and launching the next set of trestle panels.  We have brought our drill rig back to site and expect to start drilling again over the next few days.  While drilling continues to the north, we also expect to place the next set of structural steel and launch the next 6 concrete trestle panels in the coming weeks.

Water St remains closed for through vehicle access but is open for pedestrian through access along the work zone.  Addresses 1426 Water St. and above can be most easily accessed from the north and address 1418.5 Water St. and below can most easily be accessed from the south.

4/17/17 Water St. Weekly Construction Update

The Fences Have Moved!  As we have been mentioning for the last few weeks our construction fences shifted today to allow for additional work to the north or the project.  Our south construction fence is now at the Parnell St. stairs and our north fence is at 1454 Water St.  These fence moves will allow for continued process on both the soldier pile wall to the north and are trestle panel launches from the south.

Along with the fence move, activity continued throughout the project this week.  Another set of existing trestle panels was removed, two more footings were formed and utilities and backfilling continued around Parnell.

Water St remains closed for through vehicle access but is open for pedestrian through access along the work zone.  Addresses 1426 Water St. and above can be most easily accessed from the north and address 1418.5 Water St. and below can most easily be accessed from the south.

4/10/17 Water St. Weekly Construction Update

We have a Trestle!  We are very excited to announce that after months of planning and weeks of work we successfully launched our first 6 trestle panels.  Over the last week, 6 concrete trestle panels were brought to site, offloaded and “launched” onto the structural steel frame.  While we have a long way to go (we have launched 6 of 114) we have proved that our methods work and that we have the means to keep moving forward.

As mentioned last week, we are planning to move our construction fences north on 4/17/17.  The south fence will be moved from 1312 Water St. to the base of the Base of the Parnell Street stairs and the north fence will be moved from 1446 Water St. to 1454 Water St

Water St remains closed for through vehicle access but is open for pedestrian through access along the east of the project.  Addresses 1418 Water St. and above can be most easily accessed from the north and address 1412 Water St. and below can most easily be accessed from the south.
