7/16/18 Weekly Update

The Old Trestle Is No More! Last week we finished removing the last span of the existing trestle! In total we have demolished 1000 feet of trestle spread out over 55 spans! We also poured a section of soldier pile wall, and two closure pours, as well as began forming up and installing rebar in the next column footing.

This week we are planning to pour a section of cap beam and column footing, as well as additional rolled curb along a section of completed sidewalk. We are also planning to begin working on building access for our next series of column footings, and begin forming up for the next sections of bridge rail curb and sidewalk.

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
  • Addresses 1600 and above should be accessed from the north.

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

7/9/18 Weekly Update

The Last Demo Cycle Continues! Last week we were able to get another section of existing trestle removed, place two additional precast panels onto the structural steel we installed a couple of weeks ago, backfilled a section of soldier pile wall, and begin installing rock anchors and dowels in the next column footing. We also began installing rebar and building form work for a section of soldier pile wall and cap beam.

This week we are planning to demo out the final three spans of the existing trestle, form and pour a column footing, a section of soldier pile wall, as well as a longitudinal and transverse closure pour. In addition to this we are planning to continue restoration work on the south end of the project and begin to install electrical and communications conduit under the new trestle.

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

7/2/18 Weekly Update

The Pilings Are In! Last week we cast the last of the 68 soldier piles in concrete! We also launched our next section of structural steel and precast panels, began building formwork for the next section of soldier pile wall and cap beam, chipped rock on the next column footing, and removed another section of existing trestle. We were also able to get over 200 feet of water main into position under the new trestle!

The plan for the shortened holiday work week is to launch two more precast panels, remove two more sections of existing trestle, begin back filling a section of soldier pile wall, and install rock anchors for the next column footing. We are also planning on moving the south end construction fences approximately 60 feet farther north!

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 Concrete Structures Are Going In! Last week we formed and poured concrete into two column footings, a section of cap beam, approximately 180 feet of rolled curb, and in four soldier pile rock sockets. We only have four more soldier piles left to cast in concrete! In addition to this we began installing approximately 200 feet of water main under the new trestle, removed another span of the existing trestle, began installing the foundation for the self-supporting pole on the south end of the project, and post tensioned the newest section of precast panels that we placed the week prior.

This week we are planning to pour concrete in the self-supporting pole foundation, begin forming the next section of soldier pile wall, continue demolishing the existing trestle, launch the next section of structural steel and precast panels, and begin excavation work for the next column footing.

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

We’re Done Drilling Rock Sockets! We drilled out the last 24” rock sockets on the project! Over the last 15 months we’ve drilled approximately 600 linear feet of 24” rock socket over 68 sockets. We also finished drilling the 54” rock socket for the foundation of the self-supporting power pole on the south end of the project. In addition to this we set and placed the next 30 feet of precast panels and structural steel, installed stormwater and sanitary sewer utilities under the new trestle, and poured another bridge expansion joint.

This week we will begin setting and casting soldier piles in concrete, start installing the foundation for the self-supporting pole on the south end of the project, post-tension the precast panels we placed last week, place concrete in our next section of cap beam and pair of column footings, continue installing stormwater and sewer utilities under the new trestle, and begin preparing for our next trestle demolition cycle.

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

We’re Pouring Away On Water Street! Last week we poured concrete into three column footings, a section of soldier pile wall, and the final stubwall section. We were also busy drilling 24” rock sockets on the north end of the project, where we finished three more of them. This leaves only four more to go!  We also placed a manhole structure, continued installing utilities on the south end of the project, and installed a section of sidewalk pedestrian railing.

This week we are planning to pour another expansion joint, finish up drilling 24” rock sockets, set and cast soldier piles into concrete, continue installing storm and sewer structures, and begin foundational work on a self-supporting power pole. We are also planning to cap off the week with our next structural steel and precast panel launch cycle! This will add approximately 36 more feet to the new bridge!
