Pile driving on the fourth of ten test piles began early this morning near Terminal 1 (Indicator Pile #5). Following initial placement using the vibratory hammer, diesel hammer impact driving will begin around mid-day, pending marine mammal or technical issues. Work should be complete by late afternoon. Construction on the fifth pile (Indicator Pile #2) will begin early Thursday or Friday morning, pending results from today's efforts. Noise monitors will be in place in Cherry Hill and Government Hill during both pile driving efforts to gather in-air noise data.
Port of Anchorage project team members will provide an update on construction schedule and noise monitoring activities at 6:30 pm this Thursday evening (May 19, 2016) at the Government Hill Community Council meeting. See http://communitycouncils.org/servlet/viewfolder?id=269 for the Council's complete agenda. We hope to see you there!
