Construction staging for this design project outlines, step-by-step, the process by which streets, bridges, and ramps will be altered or constructed. For this project, the staging for the tight diamond interchange, single point urban interchange, and partial clover interchange are the same, with the only differences being the ramps themselves. The spread diamond interchange on the other hand has some rather radical differences when compared to the staging for the other three alternatives.
Single Point Urban Interchange (SPUI)
Canyon Estates Construction - Only do the excavation work for new Canyon Estates Dr. that extends to Main St. Use that earthwork to construct a new road that extends to Franklin St.
a. Will need to close and remove Grunder Dr. before beginning to excavate.
b. Before constructing the new Canyon Estates road, the existing one will be closed.
c. When making the new Franklin St. and Canyon Estates Dr. intersection, the connecting roads will be closed for a night to complete the intersection.
Construct New Franklin St. - New Franklin St. will be completed.
a. Need to close off access to dirt roads west of Ave 6.
Construct Column Structure - The construction for the column structure for the new bridge will be completed.
Construct Bridge Approaches - The earthwork for both bridge approaches will be put into place along with the abutments.
a. Will need to close Ave 6 first.
Construct Bridge - The Elsinore Hills bridge will be constructed.
Earthwork for Ramps - The earthwork for the northbound and southbound exit and entrance ramps will be done.
Construct Ramps - The northbound and southbound exit and entrance ramp bridges will be constructed and connected to the bridge.
Construct the Roundabout - The roundabout on Elsinore Hills and Canyon Estates Dr. will be constructed.
Complete Paving - The paving on Elsinore Hills, all ramps, and Canyon Estates Dr. will be completed.
