At the end of 2009 "CK3" finished up the North Oregon Street Project that we
started in the early spring of 2009. This was a stimulus package project which
put it on a tight schedule in order for the Stimulus money to be approved.
"CK3" did the initial control and topography work for the project which consisted
of collecting existing topographical data of the infrastructure within and
adjacent to the Right-of-Way from Idaho Ave., north along North Oregon Street to
NW 8th Ave. The project consisted of a full rebuild of the entire road including
curb and gutter and new sidewalk. There were also new light poles installed the
length of the project along with new traffic signs. The first block from Idaho Ave.
to 1st Ave. was lined with trees wells in the sidewalk and decorative light poles.
During the summer and fall of 2009 "CK3" performed the Construction Survey for the project. Working with Anderson Perry and Kerr Contractors, the project went smooth thru the staking of storm, sewer, water, curb and roadway. A last-minute addition to the job included the reconstruction of the intersection at N. Oregon and NW 8th Ave. This put the project schedule back a little, but with everyone working together the addition was able to be completed before the cold weather hit.
Overall it was a great project. The project went very smooth and everybody worked great together to finish with a nice road in a timely manner. It is always a pleasure working with Kerr Contractors and Anderson Perry. The residents that live on N. Oregon Street were very patient and cooperative with every phase of the project which was key in getting the project done in a timely manner.
