Project Status Construction
Description Three streambank stabilization projects are required to protect or restore infrastructure that is threatened by significant erosion or meandering streambank channels.  Significant streambank erosion repairs at three locations – 6910 Albervan, 7204 Oakview and 18601 Midland were initially planned to be completed by Public Works Operations staff.  Due to the extreme wet weather this year, U.S. Army Corps of Engineering (USACE) permitting,  and staffing levels and purchase manual procedures, these three projects have been bundled to be bid for construction. In addition, an alternate was bid on the project to install a swale on city property below a steep slope that is washing significant amount of sediment into a neighboring resident’s yard at 7213 Oakview.

The project includes stabilizing a side channel to the Little Mill Creek that is threatening a driveway and Midland Drive, constructing a retaining wall where the meandering stream has taken out a privacy fence and is threatening utilities, and a bank toe stabilization project where a storm drainage pipe has been severely undercut. Since these issues were  initially identified between 3-6 years ago, staff would like to see these resolved before they grow even more expensive and threaten or destroy even more infrastructure.

The Project includes installation of approximately 260  SY of  riprap, 670 SFF of retaining wall, and associated driveway, fence and turf restoration. 
Status Details Construction Bids were opened on 11-5-2019. Construction Award is on the 12/12/2019 City Council Agenda. Construction is scheduled to take 90-days overall and allowed construction time at each of the smaller locations must be completed in 21-days.
