Nordic Drive paving to begin between Gjoa and Fram

The Petersburg Road Improvement Project is moving better than scheduled due to weather and ability to continue moving from one Phase of the project to another quickly.

Demolition moves to Nordic Drive between Fram and Gjoa Streets this week as SECON workers prepare to pave the section between Excel and Fram Streets.

“We have been given the ability to continue on with the demolition of one section while finishing the previous one,” SECON Project Superintendent Bryce Iverson said. “This is making the transition much easier and faster.”

Dowl HKM Project Engineer Matt McGuan and Iverson updated the public in a progress meeting Wednesday afternoon.

McGuan reported that over the last two weeks the storm drain pipes and structures on the east side of Nordic Drive, Phase Three, have been installed and sidewalks at the west end of the Trident loading dock and concrete pavement at the Harbor Way and Excel Street intersection have been poured.

The curb and gutters on Nordic Drive between Fram and Excel Streets have been poured and the sidewalks between Dolphin and Excel Streets, except for the glass-seeded blackouts and cross landings have been poured as well.

“We began concrete removal between Gjoa and Fram Streets earlier in the week,” Iverson said.

Over the next two weeks both lanes of Nordic Drive between Excel and Fram Streets will be poured and demolition between Fram and Gjoa Streets will be completed.

The next progress meeting will take place at 1 p.m. Tuesday, July 2 in the Petersburg Borough Assembly Chambers.
