7/24/17 Water St. Weekly Construction Update

We have Anchors! We are back on track on the north end after several weeks focused on asphalt paving on the south end of the project.  Excavation for the next 7, 24” rock sockets is nearing completion and soldier pile drilling is expected to restart by the end of the week.

Along with rock socket preparation we have started drilling rock anchors for the utility pole relocation.  We have drilled, cased and grouted 8 of the 12 anchors and plan to finish the last 4 this week.  Once all of the rock anchors are complete forming of the utility pole foundations will begin and the utility poles are expected to be relocated within the next 3 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.

7/17/17 Water St. Weekly Construction Update

The Asphalt is Down and the Road is Open!  It was a bit of a battle working around the weather but we were able to finish preparation and place asphalt on the first 315 linear feet of project.  The south end isn’t 100% complete but getting the asphalt down is the last major milestone in completing sections of road.

With the first section of asphalt complete, our focus is shifting to the north and we are back to working on soldier pile prep and temporary utilities.  Over the next few weeks we will be resuming our drilling of 24” rock sockets and will be starting modifications to the existing utility poles that will allow continued progress to the north.
