South Beach Construction Projects
From Newport Public Works
We’re getting to the point where it’s time to core the streets. This will be even more disruptive than installing pipe. More so for some of you than others.
“Coring” a street is defined as cutting a street to sub‐grade (usually about 14 inches below final grade) then building sub‐grade (10 to 11 inches of 1 1⁄2” minus rock). This rock is then beat into compaction with a vibratory roller until it is compacted. On top of this 3 to 4 inches of finish rock (3/4” minus) is added. It is also compacted until 95% of the air voids have been filled.
This process is loud, disruptive and very, very congested. There will be trucks carrying out dirt, bringing in rock, driving over the top to check compaction. There will be truck drivers, testers, and equipment operators everywhere on such a small street. This will continue for about a week. The contractor will make sure the road is passable at night before they leave.
The roads will be open for the Thanksgiving Holiday.
After the roads are cored, the contractors will start preparing for curb.
C & M will start cutting Brant Street Monday. They will have 30th Street open for access. Most everyone will be able to get in and out of the Coho‐Brant area using 30th. The most problematic area will be 28th Street since there is only one way in and out. The contractor knows this and is working on a plan to get people in and out of the neighborhood.
Part of Brant St is being raised, so there will be loads of fill brought onto site. When we finish Brant, the crew will move to 27th and start coring there.
Ferry Slip Road
KSH is starting this process on 35th St.
Safe Haven Hill
We’re waiting for signs, but we’re getting closer.
I’m keeping this short because I need to get this out this afternoon.
