Pedestrian Bridge Update:
The contractor has finished the ornamental railing with exception of two panels that are required to be remanufactured. These missing panels are planned to be temporarily secured to not affect the bridge opening. The deck was successfully poured last week, and the burlap wet cure is expected to be completed this week. The bituminous trail paving is expected to be completed early this week and final topsoiling/seeding of the embankment by the end of the week. The bridge staining of the piers, abutments, beams, and concrete curb is planned to be completed this week with the specific days weather dependent.
Old West Main Street Update:
The contractor successfully completed all the storm sewer work within Old West Main last week. This week, the contractor’s focus will be on roadway excavation and grading, with the goal to get the roadway up to the new aggregate base grade by end of the week. The contractor’s schedule shows the start of the new concrete curb and gutter first thing next week. The plan for the concrete work is to install the new curb and gutter along the two blocks of Old West Main first, followed by the new concrete roadway pouring from the center out and finishing with the parking lanes. Once the concrete roadway is completed the contractor will focus on the new sidewalk, starting with the area adjacent to the building (Pedestrian Access Route - PAR) first and finishing with the concrete boulevard located between the PAR and the curb. The concrete work is expected to carry through the end of October
