Three Kings Drive - 3KWTP Construction Congestion Mitigation

As you are aware, the construction site is becoming very constrained, with still much to do as construction is being finalized this fall and through next spring, and our Construction Team is committed to remaining a good neighbor. Accordingly, we are implementing the following construction mitigation plan efforts:

  1. Contractor is notifying all suppliers, deliverers, etc., to the site that vehicles shall not stage (park and wait) on Three Kings Drive or Thaynes Canyon Drive when delivering or leaving the site. They will await notification remotely until the site is ready to take delivery.  This action has been previously implemented for concrete truck deliveries and has worked well, resulting in no complaints after implementation.
  2. Contractor is examining the use of smaller delivery loads (smaller trucks). This may increase truck traffic but reduce congestion on Three Kings Drive.
  3. A few major deliveries remain and unfortunately, due to the logistics, congestion at the site entrance is anticipated. These include deliveries for items such as large steel beams, large trusses, standing seam metal roofing, the living roof plant materials, and golf course sod. These deliveries can be scheduled in advance, therefore, we can notice everyone prior to the delivery and congestion. The Contractor will also work with Building and Engineering to obtain any necessary partial road closure permits.
  4. On-site paving will be occurring this fall and will require concrete trucks to enter the site and likely back out onto Three Kings Drive. Flagging will be provided, if and when necessary.   
  5. The contractor will be removing the construction trailers this fall. Again, this can be scheduled in advance and we can notice everyone prior to any congestion.
  6. The upcoming removal of the temporary wooden walkway and the removal/replacement of the sidewalk and gutter will also create congestion along Three Kings Drive and can’t be avoided. The Contractor will try to avoid major deliveries when this work is occurring. Similar congestion will occur with the construction of new gutter in front of the 3KWTP. The Contractor will work with Engineering to obtain work in the right of way permits.
  7. Paving of Three Kings Drive is scheduled for next spring/summer (2023), thus avoiding conflicts/congestion with the construction completion of the 3KWTP.  Paving is planned to be performed by the Streets Department as part of their annual paving program.

As outlined, unfortunately some congestion is expected. We feel, with the items identified above, that construction related impacts on Three Kings Drive can be limited to the area immediate to the 3KWTP site.

We are now in the final stretch and trust everyone will bear with us during this last push.
