2020 Pleasant Valley Subdivision Road & Drainage Improvements Phase 1B

*NEW* Project Update: July 8, 2020
Construction is scheduled to begin July 9 & 10 and will first focus on Williwa Avenue and Northwind Avenue.  Preliminary work will include the removal of signs, trees/vegetation, and shallow utility investigations/relocations (no interruptions in services are likely).  The contractor will have a presence in the neighborhood, but no heavy equipment or digging will likely occur until the following week.  We are working with the United States Postal Service to provide temporary mailbox locations during construction.  We will post the location of temporary mailboxes later this week.

We are working with the United States Postal Service to provide temporary mailboxes during construction.  All mailboxes will be grouped by street and away from areas that are actively under construction.  Newsletter #7, recently distributed to those in the project area, includes a map of where temporary mailboxes will be located.

During this time, all parcels will need to picked up at the Muldoon Post Office Station at this address:
2420 Muldoon Road
Anchorage, AK. 99504

Regular mail will still be delivered (to the temporary mailbox locations).

 

Project Update: June 25, 2020
The project team held the pre-construction meeting on June 24th.  Due to the 4th of July Holiday, the contractor has decided to begin working the week of July 6th.  The preliminary work may include the removal of signs, trees/vegetation, and shallow utility investigations/relocations (no interruptions in services are likely).  The contractor will have a presence in the neighborhood, but no heavy equipment or digging will likely occur until the following week.  The contractor has not yet decided which street to begin the work.  We will post this information as soon as it becomes available.

The Pleasant Valley Subdivision Road and Drainage Improvements Phase 1B project was recently awarded to Pruhs Construction Company, LLC.  Under a term contract with the MOA, the construction will be managed and inspected by Professional and Technical Services, Inc.  Work on the project is likely to begin in late June with most major work completed by early October.  However, some work may extend into 2021.

Construction Phasing

With funding secured, reconstruction of the remaining streets in the subdivision can continue. This summer, construction will occur on Skipper Street, the easter portion of Northwind Avenue, Williwa Avenue, and Little Dipper Avenue. At this time, the schedule for where construction will start has not yet been determined.  However, updates will be posted on the website as soon as the schedule is determined.

Skipper Street - Work on Skipper Street will include improvements to the street subgrade, installation of storm drain inlets at street intersections, a rolled curb/gutter, a sidewalk on the west side of Skipper Street, and street light improvements. A paved pathway connecting skipper street to E. 36th Avenue will also be constructed as well.

Williwa Avenue – Work on Williwa Avenue will include installation of a storm drain system with extensions to footing drain stub-outs, improvements to the street subgrade, a rolled curb/gutter, improvements to street lighting, and a sidewalk on the north side of the street.

Little Dipper Avenue – Work on Little Dipper Avenue will include installation of a storm drain system with extensions to footing drain stub-outs, improvements to the street subgrade, a rolled curb/gutter, improvements to street lighting, and a sidewalk on the south side of the street.

Northwind Avenue – Work on Northwind Avenue will only be performed between Skipper Street and Pussywillow Street. This work will serve as a continuation of the work performed in 2018 and include the installation of a rolled curb/gutter with catch basins that will connect to the storm drain installed in 2018.

 Where will construction begin?
To be determined, but stay tuned!
