Greetings First Street Tunnel Stakeholders,
Please see below for FST Community Updates:
Veterans Day: SKJD will work on Wednesday, November 11th.
Lucy, the TBM is continuing her journey southbound. Lucy is currently under First Street in the 2300 block heading southbound to the 2200 block of First Street. We are pleased to report that Lucy has made a successful run under the 2400 and 2300 blocks. We are continuing to place door hangers on resident’s doors in advance of the TBM being under that block. We expect Lucy to complete her run (2700 feet) under the intersection of First and Rhode Island Ave NW by December 2015.
Construction activities at V Street: This work will require temporary “No Parking” signs and enforcement in the area shown on the attached map-V Street and 2nd Street NW. The purpose of the no parking area is to safely remove a large crane from the V Street site. SKJD will use the area where the crane was located to begin construction of the V- Street diversion chamber. One of three diversion chambers is required in this area. The “No Parking” signs will be removed as soon as the crane is through these areas.
Construction activities at Adams and Flagler: This work will include construction of the adit from the bottom of the drop shaft (48% complete) and the delivery of concrete. In addition, there will be concrete pours at Flagler Pl side of construction staging area that will require additional restricted parking. Next pour requiring restricted parking will be approximately 11/11/15. Parking on Flagler Pl will be available following the concrete pour.
Regarding the FEMs Doors Mural Project: 20 FEMS doorway murals are now in place. The remainder will be placed in mid-to-late November.
Construction activities at the Thomas Street-CSA: This will include the construction of the adit at the bottom of the drop shaft and installation of force main within construction staging area. SKJD plans to place the force main across First Street in early December.
Thanksgiving Holiday Schedule: SKJD will stop work on the afternoon of Wednesday, November 25 and return to work Monday, November 30th. No work on Thursday, Friday, Saturday or Sunday of Thanksgiving weekend. Happy Thanksgiving to all!
Thanks to all 103 people who participated in the FST Community Hard Hat Day on Saturday, October 24—it was a great day. Please check the web site in the coming days for action photos.
Temporary “No Parking:” Installation of ground monitoring equipment along First Street is ongoing. Consequently, some temporary ‘No Parking” signs are required in selected areas to safely perform the work. We will remove signs as soon as the work is completed.
Tunnel Forum Meeting: The next Tunnel Forum is scheduled for Thursday, January 28th 2016 at 7PM. The meeting location will be ST. Georg’s Episcopal Church at 160 U Street NW.
