The Restoration Continues! Last week we continued property restoration activities along the south end of the project, continued drilling and installing rock anchors in the platform footings, installed temporary pedestrian access along the north end trestle abutment in preparation for abutment demolition, and began forming up a section of soldier pile wall. We also formed and poured approximately 20 feet of sidewalk and rolled curb next to the self-supporting power pole on the south end of the project!

This week we are planning to pour a section of soldier pile wall, continue property restoration work along the southern portion of the project, continue installing rock anchors in the platform footings, test six anchors that have previously been installed and grouted, and begin removing sections of the Wiley St. stairs in preparation for replacement.

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

  • Addresses 1528 Water St. and below (including 200 Wiley St) should be accessed from the south

The Bridge Structures Are In! Last week we poured out the final concrete surface structures on the currently built bridge in preparation for paving, including almost 150 feet of rolled curb, a section of sidewalk, and another expansion joint. We were also busy preparing the bridge deck surface so that it is ready for waterproof membrane placement prior to paving. In addition to this we began installing column footing micropiles, removed a large portion of the temporary water system, and installed electrical and communications conduit on the self-supporting pole on the south end of the project.

This week we are planning to finish final bridge deck preparations for membrane and asphalt placement, which we anticipate beginning the week of Sunday, August 19th. We will be paving driveways and the new bridge from approximately 1412 Water St. north to 1528 Water St. Additional notices will be distributed to Water St. residents in the paving area once the schedule is confirmed. We are also going to continue installing micropiles and rock anchors for column footings on the north end of the project, begin forming up the next phase of soldier pile wall, and begin assembling the next section of timber bridge rail.
