ANCICH PARK AND NETSHED REHABILITATION
PROJECT UPDATE 11/29/17
Work in Progress:
The City’s contractor, Quigg Brothers Construction, will be mobilizing onto the site starting 12/4/17. The contractor will begin bringing in equipment and materials and the site will be closed to public access for the duration of the project.
For the next couple of weeks, Quigg Brothers crews will be working on the installation of erosion control measures in preparation of excavation for the new sea walls that will be placed at the shoreline. They will also be cleaning out the old debris from inside the Ancich net shed and pier and from the Jerkovich pier. Once cleaned out the crew is going to start installing the support structure and bracing on the inside of the Ancich net shed in order to properly secure the structure for moving. On December 18th, Quigg’s barge crane is scheduled to arrive on site along with 2 stroage barges and on December 20th Quigg is scheduled to lift the Ancich net shed off of the old pier and store it on a barge where it will be restored. Once the net shed is removed the old Ancich and Jerkovich piers will be demolished and hauled off site for disposal. The old pile bulk head will be removed and the new sea walls will be constructed.
Impacts to the Public:
Starting December 4th Quigg will be closing the parking stalls in front of the site for the duration of the project. Pedestrian foot traffic will be allowed to pass in front of the site for the time being. Once the crew begins the work on the boat storage building pedestrians will be detoured around the site.
Some of the excavation for the new sea wall footings will need to be performed during the low tide cycle. During this time of the year the low tide cycles are at night or in the early morning so the City is anticipating some night work to occur. During this work you may experience construction sounds such as engine noise from excavation equipment and back-up alarms. When the City knows the exact dates of this night work, we will inform the public of the dates and times.
Thank you for your understanding.
