Ancich Waterfront Park Construction Update 8-23-18

 

ANCICH PARK AND NETSHED REHABILITATION PROJECT

 

PROJECT UPDATE 8/23/18

  

Work in Progress: 

 

The City’s contractor, Quigg Brothers Construction, has been busy with the Ancich Park and Netshed Rehabilitation Project. The netshed has been placed back on the reconstructed Ancich Pier. Siding of the Ancich netshed is mostly complete and approximately 50% of the original siding and framing timbers were re-used.  The new corten steel roof is on the netshed, and the normal rusting process (turning red) has begun. 

 

Construction the Ancich and Jerkovich Piers continues to go well. Timber decking installation is complete. The Jerkovich Pier catwalk is installed.

 

Construction of the boat storage building is underway. Most of the structural work is complete and the majority of the work is now taking place inside the building and on the roof.

 


The project continues to operate within the originally approved budget. 

 

Impacts to the Public:

 

Pedestrian Detour Route

 

Quigg has closed the parking stalls and sidewalk directly adjacent to the site for the duration of the project. Pedestrian foot traffic is no longer permitted to use the sidewalk directly in front of the site. However, a pedestrian detour is established. The pedestrian route shifts foot traffic from the sidewalk on the north side of Harborview Drive to the sidewalk on the south side of Harborview drive, from Harborview/Stinson to Harborview/Novak. There are established pedestrian crossings in both locations. A temporary rectangular rapid flashing beacon (RRFB) is installed at the Harborview/Stinson crosswalk.

 


 

Harborview Drive Impacts

 

Harborview Drive will be operating as a two-lane, two-direction street for the foreseeable future. However, please use caution as trucks are currently entering/leaving the site hauling excavation material. There will be access to all businesses and residents for the duration of the project.

 

Ancich sidewalk improvement and associated frontage improvement construction is expected to be completed over the next month. The offsite sidewalk improvements are constructed along Harborview Drive. They begin at Novak Street and continue to Eddon Boat Park. Up to six public parking stalls along Harborview Drive are temporarily closed as the sidewalk improvements are constructed. The project timeline will be updated on the project website as information becomes available. Thank you for your patience.

 


 

Noise Impacts

 

Night work is not anticipated for the foreseeable future.

 

Remaining Work and Timelines:

 


August/September:  Boat storage building insulation, boat storage building sheetrock, planter box walls on boat storage building roof, construction of west side retaining wall, installation of netshed doors and windows, completion of sidewalk frontage improvements.

 


 

DOWNTOWN GIG HARBOR IS OPEN FOR BUSINESS DURING CONSTRUCTION  
PLEASE SUPPORT LOCAL BUSINESSES

 

ACCESS TO BUSINESSES and RESIDENCES WILL BE MAINTAINED AT ALL TIMES.
