On November 6, 2017, the Johnston City Council awarded the construction contract for the project to Synergy Contracting, LLC from Bondurant, Iowa. Synergy and their subcontractors will be responsible for completing the project. Construction is anticipated to begin the week of November 13, 2017, with progress throughout the winter with a targeted completion date of May 31, 2018.

The following is a brief construction status as of December 8, 2017.

Construction fencing throughout the entire project area has been installed and clearly delineates areas within the project area from areas outside of it where no construction activity will occur.
All of the tree removal, clearing and grubbing activity has been completed on the project area east of Foxboro Road down to Beaver Creek.

Tree removal and clearing and grubbing activity continues west of Foxboro Road. This activity is anticipated to be completed within the next 5-7 construction days. Construction access to this area is occurring at Foxboro Drive just north of Chambery and from Hadfield Circle.

Beginning the week of December 11th, grading and rock placement on the first phase of the project will begin east of Foxboro Road. This activity will start near Beaver Creek and gradually move westerly to Foxboro Road. All construction access to this area will be from Foxboro Road just south of Chambery. The project has been broken into five separate phases and will generally move from east to west.

Synergy Contracting has advised us that they will have the project shut down, with no activity occurring from Saturday, December 23rd through Monday, January 1st over the Christmas and New Year’s holidays.

To ensure the construction occurs within the designed parameters, the City has contracted HR Green to provide a Construction Inspector who will be onsite monitoring construction activity anytime the contractor is working. Josh Babcock is the Construction Inspector who will be onsite, should you have questions or concerns during construction he can be reached at 515-205-5731.

Construction access to the project will be provided via Foxboro Road to the eastern portion of the project and Foxboro Road and Hadfield Circle for the western portion of the project. This activity will require increased truck traffic and intermittent lane and sidewalk closures. Please use caution as you are traveling through this area.

We recognize this construction is occurring in your backyards and we will work with the contractors to do everything we can to limit disruption to your neighborhood. However, the project will require large construction equipment and take several months to complete, so we ask for and appreciate your patience throughout the project.

Project Description

This drainage channel is located on outlots owned by the Green Meadows West Homeowners Association, and runs between Hadfield Circle and Heather Bow west of Foxboro Road and Heather Bow and Tiburon Circle east of Foxboro Road. The purpose of the project would be to correct erosion and to stabilize the stream banks from the outlet of the storm sewer project completed in 2010 easterly to Beaver Creek.

Project Funding

The Green Meadows West Central Channel Stabilization stormwater improvements are funded by the Johnston Stormwater Utility, which was implemented in July 2012 to create a dedicated funding source for projects that reduce erosion, protect properties and infrastructure from flooding and to improve water quality within the City of Johnston, for more information on the stormwater utility, visit the stormwater projects page.
