Design Update on Almond Grove Phase II - Remaining 8 streets
Following the Town Council’s approval of the Wilsey-Ham contract on April 19th for the design of the remaining eight concrete Almond Grove streets, which include Tait, Bayview, Glen Ridge, Almendra, Wilder, Bean, Massol, and Nicholson, the design work is now underway.
Upcoming field work related to the design is noted below:
Wilsey-Ham will start locating and marking utilities on the streets during the week of May 9, 2016. The utility locator will mark the existing utility locations in paint on the street or hardscape as well as use small flags to locate utilities in the planter strip landscaping. This work is anticipated to take just over a month.
Additionally, the consultant’s surveyor will begin to develop topographic surveys of the streets around the same time the utility locating and marking begins. This will entail a two person crew using tripod mounted equipment to collect this survey data. Cones and/or flaggers may be used as necessary for traffic control but traffic impact will be minimal. This work is anticipated to be completed by the end of June.
Finally, during this same time period, a geotechnical investigation will be underway. The geotechnical team will collect core samples of the existing concrete pavements using drill rigs powered by generators, which may be noisy but the work is anticipated to take only a few days.
