PROJECT STATUS ARCHIVES

May 28, 2015

Hello!

We have been very busy getting ready for construction to begin, which it (finally!) does this week.  Bradshaw Construction Corporation will be working on the tunnels for this project, and they were issued Notice to Proceed today.  Their subcontractor, Moffat Pipe, is closing Hodges Street this week to complete the microtunnel under the CSX Railroad just west of Atlantic Avenue.

Digital message boards have been erected on Hodges Street to alert passing motorists of the road closure.  Though we are hoping for a shorter timeframe, we are planning for the closure to last through October 30th.  It’s important to note that all businesses will be open throughout the street closure, and all driveways will be accessible throughout construction.

At this time, we do not have a date for when the open cut portion of the project will be advertised for construction.  That date will be determined by the speed of construction on the first tunnel.

We will be updating the website over the next few weeks with the updated construction schedule, as well as some construction photos.  We are also working to get the letters out that were mentioned in the last post.

Please feel free to contact me with any questions or concerns at (919) 996-3511 or via e-mail at CrabtreePipeline [at] raleighnc.gov.

Thanks!

Hello!  This is the first of many updates for the Crabtree Basin Wastewater System Conveyance Improvements Project (or as we like to call it “Crabtree Pipeline”).  Moving forward you can expect to see some sort of project update posted to the website at least every four to six weeks or more often as necessary.

City staff have been working diligently with our engineering consultants to finalize design and bring the project into the construction phase. Due to the size and detailed nature of this construction, the project has been divided into two construction contracts. One contractor will be responsible for completing the trenchless road/railroad crossings (Capital Boulevard, CSX Railroad across Hodges Street, Wake Forest Road, Anderson Drive, Lassiter Mill Road, Yadkin Drive, and I-440 near Glenwood Avenue).  The other contractor will be responsible for “connecting the dots” between the road crossings and completing the open trench work.

The City received bids on January 13, 2015 for the road crossings. Bradshaw Construction Company was the low bidder, and we expect construction to begin on the road crossings in June. Please see the SCHEDULE page for more information regarding our construction schedule as it becomes available. Residential impacts are likely still a year away, but we will know more information on that once we finalize the first schedule from the road crossing contractor (Bradshaw) in late April.

Over the next month or so the pre-construction communication efforts will really get underway. Every address within 1,500 feet of the project corridor will receive a letter in the mail providing them with project contact information, as well as giving them an opportunity to sign up for electronic updates on the project. People whose property is directly on the project route will receive additional correspondence relative to their specific circumstances.

Please feel free to contact me with any questions or concerns in the meantime at (919) 996-3511 or via e-mail at CrabtreePipeline [at] raleighnc.gov.

Thanks!

Phase I construction was completed in the fall of 2014 with approximately 20,000 LF of new 72-inch and 60-inch gravity sewer installed between the existing Crabtree Lift Station and Capital Boulevard.

 

Bids were received on January 13, 2015 for the construction of the proposed tunnel crossings in Phase II which includes micro-tunnels beneath Capital Boulevard, CSX Railroad within Hodges Street, Wake Forest Road, Anderson Drive, Lassiter Mill Road, Yadkin Road Bridge along the greenway, and I-440 near Glenwood Avenue.

The City intends to award the construction contract to Bradshaw Construction from Eldersburg, Maryland for the Phase II Tunnels project in February 2015 and begin construction in April 2015. The majority of the Phase II project construction will be bid under a separate contract following the start of the tunnel construction. This will be the portion of the construction involving installation of gravity sewer by open cut (trench excavation) from Capital Boulevard northwest to I-440 near Glenwood Avenue. This portion of Phase II is expected to be bid in August of 2015 and start construction in late 2015 or early 2016.
