Alameda Zone 7 Canal Repair, Gerber Creek Phase 3, Colusa Basin Levee Repair
Alameda Zone 7 Canal Repair
This project consists of levee repair at 25 different locations within the city of Pleasanton, CA. Repairs consist of water diversion and placing rip rap and geotextile along the entire height of the slope at each site. The very narrow access roads and unique conditions at each site call for creative methods and solutions to accomplish the work.
Gerber Creek Phase 3
This project for Sacramento County included widening an existing small creek as well as replacing a bridge with a new design build bridge. Approximately 44,000 CY of earth was excavated to create the new 2,000 foot section of channel. Storm drain pipes, manholes and headwalls were constructed to tie exiting drainage into the new channel. Rip Rap was placed in portions of the channel while other areas utilized curving earth slopes. Temporary access was maintained to the public while the new bridge was being constructed in place of the old one.
