ANCICH PARK AND NETSHED REHABILITATION PROJECT
PROJECT UPDATE 3/1/18
Work in Progress:
The City’s contractor, Quigg Brothers Construction, has been busy with the Ancich Park and Netshed Rehabilitation Project. The net shed has been relocated onto a barge that will remain on site while it is being rehabilitated. Quigg’s carpentry crew and the City’s engineering team have surveyed the structure to determine what siding and framing timbers can be salvaged and re-used. Original materials will be used as possible.
Demolition of the Ancich Pier and selective demolition of the Jerkovich Pier has been completed. Pile driving for the new piers is complete.
Installation of the new precast seawall is complete. Construction of the stairs and wing walls will continue over the next couple weeks.
Drilling and installation of the temporary shoring piles near Harborview Drive is complete. The contractor will continue to work on excavating and constructing the shoring wall.
Impacts to the Public:
Pedestrian Detour Route
Quigg has closed the parking stalls and sidewalk directly adjacent to the site for the duration of the project. Pedestrian foot traffic is no longer permitted to use the sidewalk directly in front of the site. However, a pedestrian detour is established. The pedestrian route shifts foot traffic from the sidewalk on the north side of Harborview Drive to the sidewalk on the south side of Harborview drive, from Harborview/Stinson to Harborview/Novak. There are established pedestrian crossings in both locations. A temporary rectangular rapid flashing beacon (RRFB) is installed at the Harborview/Stinson crosswalk.
Harborview Drive Impacts
Harborview Drive will be operating as a two-lane, two-direction street over the next two weeks. However, please use caution as trucks are currently entering/leaving the site hauling excavation material. There will be access to all businesses and residents for the duration of the project. Thank you for your patience.
Minimal night work is anticipated to occur over the next two weeks to facilitate concrete wall forming. During this work, you may experience construction noise such as engine noise from excavation equipment, and back-up alarms.
Thank you for your understanding.
Remaining Work and Timelines:
March: Completion of stairs and wing walls, fabrication/construction of Ancich and Jerkovich piers, netshed rehabilitation, placement of soldier pile wall at roadway, excavation for site retaining walls and building.
DOWNTOWN GIG HARBOR IS OPEN FOR BUSINESS DURING CONSTRUCTION
PLEASE SUPPORT LOCAL BUSINESSES
ACCESS TO BUSINESSES and RESIDENCES WILL BE MAINTAINED AT ALL TIMES.
