Safety is Priority
Safety is our number one priority when moving any type of heavy equipment into or out of the project worksite.
A pilot car will help navigate the oversize load through the neighborhood. Onsite staff will be using radio communications, orange flags, and two-way radios.
Park users and travelers are encouraged to move safely around the park. Please watch for detours and signage and follow direction from flaggers. The public is encouraged not follow construction vehicles or buses as they may enter restricted zones. All construction-related traffic impacts are subject to change.
The Washington Park Reservoir Improvements Project entails constructing a new 12.4-million gallon, seismically reinforced below ground reservoir in the same footprint of existing Reservoir 3 (upper) with a reflecting pool/water feature on top. Existing Reservoir 4 (lower) will be disconnected from the public drinking water system and a lowland wildlife habitat area, bioswale, and reflecting pool will be constructed in the basin.
The large crane will be used for the construction of the shoring wall and other activities in the project site. The crane will move back and forth, once assembled, on tracks that stand more than eight feet tall. It is anticipated the crane will remain onsite until 2018.
