Schemmer's Doug Holle, P.E., was quoted in the article, titled "Dry weather helping Bell Street project," in the July 26 edition of the Fremont Tribune.
After a seemingly slow start in May, the Bell Street widening project has picked up the pace. “They’re basically at the intersection of Military Avenue now and continuing to work north,” project manager, Holle of The Schemmer Associates, said. “The weather has finally dried up, so they’re making a lot better progress right now.”
The Bell Street project started in early May, working from south to north. The first segment was from Cuming Street, at the north end of the Bell Street viaduct, to Sixth Street. “Sixth Street is still closed and Eighth Street is closed right now to the west,” Holle said. “They’re doing pretty good with that once it dried up…It was a slow start with the weather. In May and into mid-June it was pretty wet. As long as it stays dry, they’re making good progress."
Holle also asks that motorists to be patient and cautious while driving in the work zones, to avoid traffic cones that can be hit easily while on the road.
