Attached please find the July Monthly Progress Report along with some recent progress photos.
The biggest change you may notice is the new 90-foot wide delineated temporary channel. This channel will be in place for approximately the next 12 months to safely facilitate new bridge construction; boater access is being maintained at all times.
Please note that per ordinance, the contractor can perform large noise activities between the hours of 7 a.m. to 8 p.m. Monday through Friday and 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Saturdays. The team is very conscious of being good partners to local residents, restaurants and businesses, and do everything they can to avoid driving pile so late into the day. However, once the pile program has started, it has to be completed as data is being collected and recorded and can’t be interrupted or delayed until the following day. If there is an issue with equipment or a weather delay, the pile driving can go into the evening – this is the exception, not the norm. Our entire team prioritizes being good partners and minimizing construction impacts, please feel free to call or email me if you ever have any questions.
