Provided below is current construction information on the upcoming construction schedule, but please remember schedules can be impacted by a variety of factors to include weather, materials scheduling, availability of resources, and coordination with others.
Current Construction Info (Sep. 29, 2023):
Drainage Improvements: Scheduled to take place Oct. 2 - 6, Mariposa Grande will be CLOSED at Miller Road for contractor crews to install storm drain on the east side of Miller Road across Mariposa Grande Drive. La Vista at Pinnacle Peak residents and their visitors may use 77th Street to access Pinnacle Peak Road during this time.
Bridge Construction: Grading is taking place this week to provide suitable access for steel reinforcement and drilled shaft work.
Scheduled to begin the week of Oct. 2, crews will be on-site to tie rebar cages for steel reinforcement in preparation for the drilled shaft work. These rebar cages will be inserted into each drilled shaft prior to pouring of concrete, to provide additional support.
Scheduled for the week of Oct. 16, crews will begin drilling of 63 shafts, each averaging about 80 feet deep, with drilling taking place with an auger during daytime hours, weekdays. The drilled shaft work is expected to take a couple of months dependent on soil conditions, and is a critical first step in the bridge construction.
Landscape Salvage: Landscape salvage is complete with salvageable trees boxed and currently located in the contractor's nursery to be maintained throughout construction until they can be replanted back in the project area.
Pipeline Abandonment: Pipeline abandonment to remove the existing abandoned waterline in the wash is nearing completion.
As a note, we understand this is a tight site for the work to take place and have been made aware of the visibility issue, so we are creating a parking area that will be used moving forward.
Resident access is being maintained during this work which is taking place primarily between the hours of 6 a.m. and 6 p.m., Monday through Friday. Occasional weekend and night work may be required.
