       Channel Mark/Cove Update                 09/11/14

I spoke with the HNTB representative yesterday morning; here's the latest: (1) Some ramps, installed to comply with ADA (American Disability Act) requirements, are being re-worked; (2) video footage of the installed drainage pipes indicate moisture at some joints; the pipe manufacture says the pipe will "cure"... HNTB notes there should be no moisture at the joints and is directing the contractor to install a plastic sleeve in the pipes (in situ) and heat to seal the joints; this must be done at the contractor's expense... contractor and pipe manufacturer are trying to resolve this issue... Liquidated Damages are running at $600/day; (3) once these issues are settled, a "walk through" will be conducted to construct a "punch list" of items that need to be completed; (4) the contractor then has 30 days to correct items on the punch list; it may take less than 30 days, and (5) No one is putting a date on final paving, the last item to be completed on this project.  I'm hopeful it will be mid-October.
