Update – 4/1/19

Preparation work for the two ground improvement areas on the east side of Quentin Road between East and West Cuba Roads was completed this past week.  Installation of the subsurface concrete columns in these areas is expected to begin next week.  Stud shears were welded onto the H-piles installed for the retaining wall south of Boschome Drive which will hold the concrete to the H-piles.  This week, reinforcing steel will be placed and concrete will be poured for this wall.  Installation of sheet piles north of Greenwood Drive is scheduled to begin later this week.  This operation will take approximately two weeks to finish.  The sheet piles are being installed to assist in removal of poor subsurface soils in the area.

Nicor Gas crews continued work on the 4” distribution system in the area of Lea Lane, Greenwood Drive and Bristol Trail.  The installation of the 4” pipes in this area is complete.  Nicor is expecting to bring these pipes into service by April 12th.  Nicor Gas closed Boschome Drive this morning to make the final connection of the 20” steel high pressure line.  The road is expected to be closed until April 30th.  Please follow the posted detour.  More information can be found at by clicking here.

AT&T crews continue pulling new cables in conduits and splicing aerial cables at various locations throughout the project.  Splicing on both the fiber optic and copper cables is expected to be complete in April.  The old cables are scheduled to be taken out of service April 18th through April 22nd
