Weekly Plan
For week of August 13 - 17

Hauling on 147th Walking path is concluded.
Complete the common excavation (i.e.dirt)
Begin rock excavation - The reports are that the rock should be friable enough to rip out with the excavator.  If this does not prove to be the case then hydraulic breakers may be required,

Project Update
Just under 34,000 cubic yards of material has been removed from the site and is stockpiled at the Sunrise property on 172nd and Armstrong Circle.
It took an average of 52 seconds to load each dump truck.

A non-injury safety incident occurred at the job site on August 9th. A spare on-site truck was being used to haul asphalt debris as the crews cleaned up the 147th walking path after the excavators moved down into the hole.  In what appears to be a mechanical malfunction with the emergency brake, the truck rolled down the hill and went through the temporary fencing and into a home's yard.  Fortunately no one was hurt.  The contractor closed the site to normal work today while a complete safety incident investigation is conducted.  That truck has been removed from the job site.

Update on work completed - 

To date more than 7,500 cubic yards of dirt has been removed from the site.

The construction entrance and erosion control measures have been installed at the stockpile site on 172nd Avenue and Armstrong Circle.

Due to the depth of the excavation, the contractor will be removing soil from the top of the site using old 147th as access for a period.
