Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) February 06, 2013
The early stages of construction work on the San Gabriel Trench Project begin mid-February with the relocation of underground utilities: sanitary sewer, storm water and fiber optics.
Walsh Construction Company is in charge of construction on the project for the Alameda Corridor-East (ACE) Construction Authority. HNTB Corporation conducted preliminary engineering and final design services as a subconsultant to Moffat & Nichol.
Utility relocation work will begin near the Alhambra Wash and move eastward toward Walnut Grove Avenue. Anticipated completion date of the utility relocation is October 2013.
“The community should see no outages as a result of this utility relocation,” said Matt Redfern, project manager for Walsh Construction. “ACE Construction Authority, the City of San Gabriel, Walsh, Moffatt & Nichol and HNTB are committed to making this project run as smoothly as possible for our neighbors in San Gabriel.”
Walsh Construction — with offices in Los Angeles and Walnut Creek — has been active in the Los Angeles area since 1986. Moffat & Nichols has offices in Long Beach and Walnut Creek and has been a fixture in Los Angeles since 1945. HNTB’s history in Los Angeles dates back to 1914 with Pasadena’s Arroyo Seco Bridge, and most recently, with the firm being selected as designer of the Sixth Street Bridge replacement. HNTB has two offices in Los Angeles.
When completed in 2017, the 30-feet-below-grade railroad tracks will improve safety and eliminate train horns while reducing traffic congestion and air pollution. The 2.2-mile project will connect the Alameda Corridor and the ports of Los Angeles and Long Beach to the transcontinental rail network, creating a faster, more efficient method of distributing an expected $314 billion in annual trade.
