Project Updates:


  • Pedestrian Tunnel - July 2020

    by Krista McDowell | Jul 13, 2020

    During the past month, the contractor has installed the southern half of the pedestrian tunnel under Windward Parkway and reconstructed the roadway atop that portion of the tunnel. Boardwalk work has continued with the construction of the abutments for two of the four boardwalk sections.  Additionally, installation of retaining walls along the project has begun.

    Upcoming work will include continued construction of the northern portion of the tunnel under Windward Parkway,  continuation of boardwalk construction, and installation of the concrete trail along Marconi Drive.

  • Tunnel Installation- June 2020

    by Krista McDowell | Jun 04, 2020

    During the past month, the contractor has been grading the trail area north of Windward Parkway and along Marconi Drive and has completed installation of helical piers, which are used to provide foundational support for structures for three boardwalk sections.  Additionally, preparatory work for the installation of the tunnel under Windward Parkway has begun and traffic flow along that stretch of Windward Parkway has been modified accordingly.  Upcoming work will include continued construction of the tunnel under Windward Parkway, construction of retaining walls, continuation of boardwalk construction, and grading along Marconi Drive and north of Windward Parkway.

  • Traffic Flow Changes - May 2020

    by Krista McDowell | May 11, 2020

    During the past month, clearing of the trail alignment has continued and the contractor has installed approximately 350 feet of storm drainage near the tunnel location. Additionally, the construction of two boardwalk sections have begun with the installation of helical piers, which are used to provide foundational support for structures.  Upcoming work will include construction of retaining walls, beginning the installation of the tunnel crossing under Windward Parkway, additional storm drainage installation, continuation of boardwalk construction, and grading along Marconi Drive. Beginning May 15th, traffic patterns along Windward Parkway, between Union Hill Road/Market Place and Compass Pointe Crossing, will change to permit the beginning of construction of the tunnel under Windward Parkway. As they install each half of the tunnel, they will close off both lanes of traffic in one direction. The other side of the road will then be utilized to provide one lane of travel in each direction. The two lanes from Union Hill Road/Market Place towards Compass Pointe Crossing will be closed and the two lanes headed from Compass Pointe Crossing toward Union Hill Road/Market Place will be utilized to provide on lane in each direction. When they complete the first half of the tunnel, they will then flip the traffic flow. Traffic delays due to construction should be expected.

    The contractor has installed over 1,000 feet of trail along Windward Parkway and Union Hill Road, cleared approximately an additional 1,000 feet of trail, and has begun installation of storm drainage along Windward Parkway between Market Place/Union Hill Road and Big Creek.  Upcoming activities will include: continued clearing and installation of erosion control measures, continued placement of trail along Windward Parkway and Marconi Drive, continued installation of storm drainage, and start of retaining wall construction.

  • Erosion Control - March 5, 2020

    by Krista McDowell | Mar 05, 2020
    The contractor has begun work beginning along Windward Parkway, between Marconi Drive and Windward Plaza. Currently, installation of erosion control measures and tree clearing is expected to progress down Marconi Drive towards the existing Greenway Trail head this month.

    Work of the same nature is also anticipated to occur on along Windward Parkway between Market Place/Union Hill Road and Big Creek.  Additionally, the contractor hopes to begin installation of storm drainage to the south of Windward Parkway in this area, weather permitting. The next task in the project would be to begin work on curb and gutter near the entrance to Union Hill Park.
