SouthEast Connector Project: Pile Driving at Boynton Slough to Begin
Pile driving operations are to begin at the second bridge location on Phase 2, Boynton Slough, the week of April 11, 2016. Pile driving is an essential construction technique used in building bridge foundations. To support the weight of the bridge, steel pipes are driven into the ground beneath the bridge foundation until they reach a stable layer of soil. They are then filled with concrete to create the base of the entire bridge foundation.
On Phase 2, pile driving will take place in five locations totaling 650 piles:
1. Yori Drain: August 2015
2. Boynton Slough: April 2016
3. Rosewood Lakes: May 2016
4. Mira Loma: TBD
5. Huffaker Narrows: TBD
The SouthEast Connector team is taking several precautions to minimize the noise during these times. Sound monitoring and noise-reducing equipment will ensure noise does not exceed 70dBA (comparable to a lawn mower from 100 feet away).
Stakeholder updates will be distributed weekly, and as construction operations progress.
