Boulevard Fence Replacement Project Phase 1 – Update

Sections 1, 2, 3, 4, and 5 are essentially completed. These 5 sections cover the fencing on both sides of West Belfort and the east side of Winston Ranch Parkway from West Belfort to Long Meadow Farms Parkway. There are still some irrigation issues being addressed in section 5 but they are minor and should be completed soon.

Fence work has been completed in Sections 6 through 10 with some minor fence cleaning still left to be performed in some areas. The crews are currently working on irrigation repairs in these areas. Sections 6 through 10 encompass the west side or Winston Ranch Parkway from the elementary school to Somervell Court and both sides of Long Meadow Farms Parkway.

In Section 11 the contractor is waiting on AT&T to complete the splicing to tie their cables back together. Comcast has run their cables, temporarily, on the surface inside the temporary fence to allow for the completion of the fencing in that section and will come back at a later date and trench it. If the contractor is notified by AT&T that they will complete the spicing work by this weekend, they plan to have a crew back working on Section 11 on Monday morning. They will restore the orange construction fencing torn down by AT&T.

Section 11 is fencing on the west side of Winston Ranch Parkway from Somervell to Idle Wind Drive. The Phase 1 fencing contractor has begun pouring piers in Section 12. They plan to have the mason on site to start on the wall next week. This is the section on the east side of Winston Ranch Parkway from the Recreation Center to James Long Court. This will be the last section to be completed under Phase 1 of the fence replacement project.

The District greatly appreciates the community’s patience during construction of the new walls. Please contact us through the district website at http://www.fbmud146.org/contact with questions or concerns.

Boulevard Fence Replacement Project – Updates

Boulevard Fence Replacement Project Phase 1 – Update

American Wall Systems (the Contractor) for Phase 1, has put in landscaping and hydromulch in Sections 1, 2, 3, 4, and 5. The irrigation has been turned back on in those sections. Grass is beginning to grow again. The landscaper is working on planting beds and preparing for hydromulching in Sections 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, and 10. Section 11 is currently delayed due to AT&T and Comcast cables that were not properly located in the utility easement and were cut by the fence contractor while boring holes for piers for the new brick fence. AT&T is almost finished with the relocation of their line. Comcast is running their line on the surface inside the temporary fence line to allow for the completion of the fencing in that section and will come back at a later date and trench it. Section 12 fencing demolition was started but was then delayed while waiting for the utility lines to be marked. The law requires the contractor to have buried utilities marked before they can begin boring for the piers to be placed. American Wall has put in four requests for the marking but only cable utilities have been flagged. The contractor is working to get the gas and electric utilities marked so that they can proceed with boring for the fence piers.

Boulevard Fence Replacement Project Phase 2 – Update

Phase 2 of the fence replacement project began on August 29. This phase of the project was awarded to FenceCrete America and will focus primarily on the boulevard fencing along Winston Ranch Parkway north of West Belfort. Demolition has begun along both sides of Winston Ranch Parkway and they have begun boring holes for the piers on the east side. It is planned that no fence construction will take place on the west side of Winston Ranch until Section 1 on the east side is completed in order to allow the side walk on one side of the road to remain open for use. A sequence map for Phase 2 of the project is shown below with the proposed order of construction.
