The contractor poured the concrete cap beam for the downhill retaining wall this week. The reinforced concrete cap beam is a 4'x4'x250' structural element that sets the top of the downhill retaining wall. The contractor also began installation of drainage improvements and started the earthwork between the retaining walls. The earthwork includes excavation of the soil between the two retaining walls to a depth of 10 feet, install subsurface drainage, reinstall and compact the soil in place. The earthwork operation between the retaining walls is expected to run through the third week of October. After the soil work is completed, the contractor will begin installing the new 8-inch waterline through the project site. After the waterline is complete, the contractor will install the new asphalt pavement section, taking us into approximately the first week of November. The project is planned to be wrapped up mid-November with completion of railings, fences, erosion control, paint, striping, and punch list items. Our continued goal is to get the road open for public use as soon as possible. We will continue to provide updates as the work progresses. For the safety of residents and construction workers, please do not go into the project site.
The Public Works Maintenance crews are continuing to maintain the access road.
Please keep speed to 15 miles per hour on the access road.
