Completion of Approximately $2.75 Million Slip Remediation Projects

Upper Winding Way 1

In the spring of 2018, the City embarked on the task to remediate several road slips throughout the City. This undertaking involved ten (10) locations. Over the past year, the City has worked diligently to complete a majority of these projects and restore the stability of these roadways. Remediation of these slips has resulted in an overall reduction of the City’s liability. Had the City allowed these areas to continue to diminish, potential future debt could have incurred. The structural integrity of these areas is now improved, and they are safer for our citizens. The City has utilized the services of five (5) Engineers for these projects. Those Engineers are Civil & Environmental Consultants, Inc. (CEC) of Bridgeport, The Thrasher Group, Inc. of Bridgeport, Hornor Brothers Engineers of Clarksburg, Ascent Consulting & Engineering of Clarksburg, and Terradon Corporation of Clarksburg.

All active slip remediation projects have been finalized, apart from Upper Winding Way. This project is being completed by Rock Forge Bridge Company from Amma, WV. Installation of pile and lagging wall as well as a structural beam has been completed. The project will be finished following blacktop, work which is scheduled to commence soon.

Rock Forge Bridge Company also completed projects at Lower Winding Way which required installation of pile and lagging wall, as well as the Quarry project which required shoulder repair along with a pile lagging wall.

Ascension Street/Brannon Avenue consisted primarily of a concrete lagging wall, installation of a storm water system, extensive site reclamation, and a steel pile wall. Alan Stone Company from Williamstown, WV was the Contractor.

Cove Run Contracting of Clarksburg completed work on an asphalt pavement, a concrete curb, and sheet piling for the Lowndes Hill Project.

A large modular block retaining wall, drainage piping and structures, and a chain link fence were installed on Magnolia Street off of Milford Street by Wolfe’s Excavating of Clarksburg.

Leon Street is a pending slip remediation. The City is currently in the process of applying for Abandoned Mine Land (AML) Pilot Funds to assist us with this project as it will require mine void and space stabilization due to past mining activity.

Terradon Corporation is utilizing geotechnical equipment to monitor Clay Street near Maud Street. Also, Terradon performed an assessment of condition and prepared a conceptual plan for Chestnut Street near Kramer Drive. Similarly, The Thrasher Group is using geotechnical equipment to monitor N. 19th Street/WV Avenue.

The City has been successful in recouping money, over half a million dollars thus far, for these slip remediations by working with the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) on those slips which are eligible for FEMA reimbursement. The City hopes to be as successful with the AML Pilot Funds offered through West Virginia Department of Environmental Protection should the project at Leon Street be eligible.
