The New Year brought more un-needed weather to the site. The week started off with wet conditions. Taking advantage of sunny day windows the crews are using blending and dying techniques to keep the schedule moving forward.
Durharts Creek bypass was put into place to allow for the bridge foundation crews and pipe crews to work without water running through their work areas. The creek bypass will stay in place until the arch span bridge is erected.
Storm crew finished out the triple run of 72” pipe. Headwalls will be poured next week. The bridge foundation crew is hoping to have all the sheet pile piles in by the beginning of next week and start driving “H” piles that the foots will set on.
The waterline crews have started on the loop feed around the building that will provide both domestic and fire line.
Overburden removal and revealing good fill material underneath is still a huge factor in progress. Crews have hauled nearly 40,000cy offsite at this point. The site contractor has been running to operations to remove as much overburden as possible at the same time excavating good fill material to bring the pad and parking lot up to grade.
