Earthwork operations continue on the south side of President Street.  Required undercutting in this area should be complete in the next week or two.  Once undercutting is complete, fill material will continue to be placed elevating and surcharging the new roadway and utility corridor.

Other crews continue the water, sewer, and stormwater utility line installations along Randolph Street, and the installation of the new 24” water main along the east side of General McIntosh Boulevard.  Once new water main utility lines are installed and connections to existing lines are made on the east side of General McIntosh, crews will be able to begin undercutting and backfill earthwork operations necessary along the new General McIntosh Boulevard corridor and location of the new President Street and General McIntosh Boulevard intersection.

A forth crew continues working on the installation of jack and bore steel casings underneath the railroad tracks, just south of President Street and west of Truman Parkway.

The project requires a section of the future Bilbo Canal and bridge over this canal to be constructed.  The new canal will run from just south of President Street to the Savannah River.  A bridge will be built along President Street where it crosses over the Bilbo Canal.  Delivery of steel sheet piles have begun arriving on site to prepare for the bridge and canal construction portion of the project.
