Town Center Update - August 26, 2019

Posted on August 26, 2019 at 12:21 PM by grodericks grodericks

Overall Project Activity

PD_Road-8-19-19Work this week continues with final grading of the temporary roadway to the Police Department, completion of the Secure Parking Lot, completion of the new Sewer Line, installation of the Building Pad for City Hall, and Piers for the new Library. 

Live webcams for Library site work and the City Hall/PD site work are now active on the Town's website. There is also a project progress photo gallery

City Hall/Police Building

Admin-PD Building_8-26-19S.J. Amoroso is finalizing the temporary roadway from Fair Oaks into the secure Police Parking lot. Parking for the Police Department has to be relocated as work on the new building moves forward. 

The S.J. Amoroso has finished the base building pad and will begin layout of the building and survey siting of the drilled pier locations. Underground drainage also has to be completed around and under the building pad. 

Adjacent to the main City Hall and Police Building is the new Secure Police Parking Lot. Within that lot (between the new building and the Caltrain tracks) is the Police Ancillary Building. After finalizing the main building pad, S.J. Amoroso will finalize the pad and layout for the Ancillary Building. Following its layout, S.J. Amoroso will excavate the grade beams for the building. 

Historic Town Hall

Historic_Town_Hall_2-8-19-19Demolition of the interior of the historic Town Hall building is complete. This building will ultimately become a part of the new Library connected via a deck and patio doors that spill out from the side of the building onto the new deck. The front doors of the entry way area are being saved and refinished for reinstallation at the end of the remodel. 

New Library

Work this week involves drilling and installing the piers for the new building. Once these are complete, work will begin on layout and excavation of the grade beams and installation of the rebar. At this point, you should be able to see the layout of the new building taking shape. 

Site Work

Sewer_8-19-19Overall site work is focused on utilities. The new sewer line work continues moving from Maple Avenue to Fair Oaks. CalWater is on site to begin installation of the new water line that will follow the same route. This work will continue well into September.
