CONSTRUCTION UPDATE VOLUME 16 - NOV. 16, 2009

Last week, H&W finished sanitary sewer installation on Park Avenue between Broadway Avenue and Heib Street.

Zacharias Construction prepared Center Street, State Street, and Wagner Street for paving. Seal Pros paved Center Street, State Street, and Wagner Street.

This week, H&W plans to clean up the site. Seal Pros plans to adjust manhole castings up to asphalt grade. Zacharias plans to clean up ditches and apply gravel base where necessary prior to winter. Please be cautious on all streets affected by the construction this year as miscellaneous work is still being performed outside of the street. Washington Street from Dakota Avenue to Nebraska Avenue will most likely not be paved this fall. The sub-grade on Washington Street is fairly wet and unstable in some spots.

 

 

CONSTRUCTION UPDATE VOLUME 15 - NOV. 9, 2009

Last week, H&W installed 8” sanitary sewer from the lumber yard parking lot toward the southwest to Park Avenue and then south on Park Avenue to Park Street.

Seal Pros paved Broadway Avenue from Broadway Circle to the railroad tracks. They also paved Washington Street from Broadway Avenue to Dakota Avenue, Dakota Avenue from Center Street to Washington Street, and a portion of Center Street on the west end.

This week, H&W plans to install 8” sanitary sewer from Park Street to Heib Street on Park Avenue. After that they will connect the existing services to the new 8” sewer main on Park Avenue.

Seal Pros will pave whatever Zacharias can get ready for them at the end of the week. Broadway Avenue is now open to traffic. Please be cautious on Broadway as work is still being performed outside of the street on Broadway Avenue and on the side streets. During grading operations on Center Street, Washington Street, State Street, and Wagner Street, local traffic is allowed. However, you may have to park elsewhere on occasion during street grading operations.

 

 

CONSTRUCTION UPDATE VOLUME 14 - NOV. 2, 2009

H&W finished storm sewer installation on the south end of Broadway Avenue. After that they stubbed 8” sanitary sewer and 6” water main to the north from the Center Street and Dakota Avenue intersection. Next they installed the water service meter pits for each lot along Broadway Circle. Finally, they filled the old sewage trunk line with K-Crete and cleaned up Center Street. Zacharias Construction cut the south end of Broadway Avenue and Wagner Street down to dirt grade and installed gravel base. Next they prepared the gravel base on Broadway Avenue from Broadway Circle to the railroad tracks for paving. Carl V Carlson Company poured the walls and lids for the junction boxes and catch basins on the south end of Broadway Avenue.

This week, H&W plans to install 8” sanitary sewer from the manhole in the lumberyard parking lot toward the southwest to Park Avenue. From there they will continue to the south on Park Avenue toward Heib Street. After the streets dry, Zacharias plans to prepare Broadway Avenue and Center Street for paving. Seal Pros plans to pave Broadway Avenue from Broadway Circle to the railroad tracks. While Broadway Avenue is closed, local traffic can use alternate routes such as 273rd Street and Nebraska Avenue for local access. Through traffic should use the detour. The detour routes traffic to the west of Marion using Highways 44, 15, and 18.

 

 

CONSTRUCTION UPDATE VOLUME 13 - OCT. 26, 2009

H&W continued sanitary sewer installation with one crew. They completed sanitary sewer installation on State Street from Broadway Avenue to Dakota Avenue. Next they started on the storm sewer installation on Broadway Avenue from Wagner Street to midblock between State Street and Washington Street. They could not finish the storm sewer due to the rain. Zacharias Construction cut State Street down to dirt grade and installed gravel base from Broadway Avenue to Dakota Avenue. Carl V. Carlson Company poured the concrete bases for Junction Boxes #2 – 4 and for Catch Basin #1.

This week, H&W plans to finish the storm sewer on the south end of Broadway Avenue.

H&W continued sanitary sewer installation with one crew. They installed the 12” sanitary sewer on Wagner Street from just north of the tracks on Broadway Avenue to 220’ east where KW’s bore pit was located and tied into the manhole they set there last week. After that they finished connecting the existing sanitary sewer services on Broadway Avenue to the new 12” sewer main. After that they cleaned up the site before the rain hit. There is approximately 250’ of 8” sanitary sewer left to install on Washington Street between Dakota Avenue and Center Avenue.

This week, H&W plans to complete the 8” sanitary sewer on Washington Street after the rain quits and the site dries enough to work. Weather permitting, Zacharias plans to continue to cut any streets they can down to dirt grade and install gravel base. KW Boring plans to get started on the railroad bore under the tracks between the lumberyard and Marion Oil. There is a chance they could complete this bore this week. However, they will probably have to come back next week to finish it. During dirt and gravel grading, the affected residents on Broadway Avenue can use the church parking lot for temporary parking. They also can park along the west ends of Center Street, Washington Street, and State Street. The affected residents on Washington Street can use Nebraska Avenue and Broadway Avenue for access.

The crew on Washington Street will continue to head east installing 8” sanitary sewer. Zacharias Construction plans to grade Center Street, Dakota Avenue, and North Broadway Avenue to dirt grade and apply gravel base. The affected residents on Washington Street can use Nebraska Avenue and Broadway Avenue for access. As construction on Broadway Avenue progresses south, residents on Broadway can use the church parking lot for temporary parking (located on the east side of Broadway between Center and Washington). Also, affected residents on Dakota Avenue and Washington Street can use the church parking lot for temporary parking. While Broadway Avenue is closed, local traffic can use alternate routes such as 273rd Street and Nebraska Avenue for local access. Through traffic should use the detour.

CONSTRUCTION UPDATE VOLUME 1 - JULY 27, 2009

 

Construction Has Commenced

H&W Contracting began mobilizing their equipment to the north east corner of Marion the week of July 13, 2009. They started work on the project on Monday July 20, 2009. They are awaiting delivery of pipe and manholes so they can start installing the new sanitary sewer.
