2013 ASBESTOS CEMENT WATER MAIN REPLACEMENT PROJECT
(updated 6-11-14)

The City of Gig Harbor and Kar-Vel Construction are gearing up to complete the Asbestos Cement Water Main Replacement Project street restoration.  All water main work was completed last year but due to inclement weather and temperatures, the paving restoration phase of the project was suspended for the winter. Now that we are out of winter and the weather is within the temperatures ranges to pave, the project will resume to completion. 

·     Kar-Vel construction will start grinding and overlaying certain portions of Vernhardson and Ridgeway the week of June 18th through 24th.  This work remains weather dependent and this time frame may shift if rain is encountered.

·     During this phase of construction you can expect long traffic delays and flaggers present to help manage traffic through the work zones.  There may also be short duration road closures.  If a street is closed there will be a detour in place to re-direct traffic through the work area and residents will be allowed through the detour to access their properties.

PRIMARY PROJECT CONTACT -- George Flanigan, Construction Supervisor at (253) 853-7695 or Trent Ward, P.E., Project Manager/Sr. Engineer at (253) 853-7637.

The City will circulate periodic updates by email. If you would like to receive project updates, please provide your email contact information to Sonia Billingsley at (253) 853-7561 and indicate that you wish to be added to the stakeholders list for this project.

 


 

POINT FOSDICK SIDEWALK EXTENSION (Public Library to Briarwood Lane) -- (posted 5-8-14)

OPEN HOUSE HELD ON APRIL 1, 2014 from 4:00 to 6:30 p.m.  Click here for printable design illustration.

PROJECT DESCRIPTION -- Design and construct a sidewalk along at least one side of Point Fosdick Drive between Harbor Country Drive (across from the Public Library) and Briarwood Lane. Design will be completed for both sides of Point Fosdick and the project will be constructed on both sides as budget allows. The project includes low-impact development elements such as porous pavement and a bio swale.  Underground conduit will also be installed for a future street lights.

Funding for this project includes a grant from the WA Department of Ecology and local City funds. The amount budgeted for the project design and construction is $390,000.

ANTICIPATED PROJECT SCHEDULE -- The project is currently under design and the City is pursuing the required permits.  It is anticipated that the project will be constructed this summer, beginning as soon as school is out in late June.

IMPACTS TO THE GENERAL PUBLIC -- During the course of construction, there will be traffic control to allow the sidewalk and bio swale construction to occur safely. There will likely be significant intermittent traffic impacts on days when the porous concrete sidewalk is poured. The equipment used on this project will cause loud noise and vibrations as the work is performed.

Please consider alternate traffic routes during construction. Access to local residences and businesses will be maintained at all times.

PRIMARY PROJECT CONTACT -- Emily Appleton, P.E., Senior Engineer at (253) 853-7620 or Jeff Olsen, Construction Supervisor at (253) 853-7661. 

The City will circulate periodic updates by email.  If you would like to receive project information and construction updates, please provide your email contact information to Maree' George at (253) 853-7553 and indicate that you wish to be added to the stakeholders list for this project.
