Tidewater Gull Water Upgrade
This project consisted of furnishing and installing coated ductile iron and PVC water main pipe all within the Port of Anchorage area for Anchorage Water and Wastewater Utility. GMC furnished all labor, materials, equipment and supervision to successfully complete the work for updating the water lines in this critical area of the Anchorage Bowl. In addition to close coordination with the Port of Anchorage businesses, it involved working in close proximity to petroleum, oil and lubrication lines owned by the major oil suppliers of Alaska as well as JBER.
K-Beach Road/Coal Creek Fish Passage
GMC was the responsive low bidder and general contractor for this project that consisted of removing an existing 9’ multi-plate culvert and replacing it with a 190’ long, 18’ multi-plate culvert. The work consisted of excavating 40,000+ yards over a 600’ fill, excavating 53’ deep from original grade while keeping traffic flowing. A diversion culvert was installed to get the water away from the working area, and once the water was directed into the new culvert the bypass was removed. A new channel was formed out of rooted trees, special fabrics that wrapped soil with willows planted between the layers of fabric to build a natural stream bank to start growing on its own.
