Washington Gas Phase 1 replacement continued this week. Pavement breaking, trench excavation, and gas line pipe backfill took place underneath the Connecticut Avenue Bridge. All pipe was verified to be at a sufficient depth to not interfere with the upcoming trail work.
Anchor Construction placed riprap in the sump at proposed structure MH-2 along the Tregaron Conservancy property. The existing structure was removed last week and the existing pipe, nearly 90 years old, was partially unclogged using hand tools. The pipe now conveys drainage from the Tregaron property to Klingle Creek where in the past drainage would bypass the pipe and flood Klingle Road. The pipe to Klingle Creek will be fully cleaned prior to structure installation later this year.
Washington Gas installed safety shoring just east of the Connecticut Avenue Bridge north abutment for valve installation.
Anchor Construction performed maintenance on the west trailhead construction entrance. The stone and concrete rack will allow crews to wash vehicles and prevent mud tracking on the street.
