First, they hold an INTERNAL meeting to discuss issues that they obviously don't have all the information on. Warren also told me that yesterday, Anita sent an email to Dana Chrissy, asking for about 30 or 40 pieces of information that they needed to make their evaluation, instead of having @ meeting with everyone there. Item #1 below — I have not heard anything about any “significant” problems during construction or any “post- Construction remediation” needed for the MHH Bridge. For Gene to indicate that something is a “show stopper’ is totally against our partnering agreement isn't it??? Finally, this ‘meeting’ he requested (at the end of his emai)...He sent the meeting request at 10:20 a.m. today, asking everyone (TxDOT, Oncor & the City) to meet at 3 p.m. today in Ft. Worth. Not really reasonable. Thanks for letting me vent. Rebecca Rasor Dugger, P.E. Director Trinity River Corridor Project (214) 671-9501 Sent: Wednesday, December 03, 2008 11:23 AM | To: Benoy, Warren; Jordan, Ji Ce: Craig, Kevin L SWF; Perrin, Les SWF; Branch, Anita SWF; Dugger, Rebecca; ‘Subject: Oncor Relocation for Margaret Hunt Hill Bridge Importance: High Russo, Ray S SWD Good Morning, This morning we had an internal (Fort Worth District) meeting to discuss the current Oncor / Margaret Hunt Hill Bridge proposal. There are a number of issues that will require additional discussion with Oncor, including: 1. The boring logs show sand/water at 12' depth. The bridge piers that were installed on the riverside of the levee encountered these layers and caused significant problems during construction. Furthermore, the construction of these piers will now require post-construction remediation measures to alleviate the "substantial" risk caused by the construction. 2. When the proposed entrance ramps to the new NTTA Trinity Parkway are superimposed over the area, the proposed relocation site of the tower that is west of the bridge is in direct Conflict with the ramp alignment. This tower will ikely have to be relocated off the levee due to this conflict 5/19/2009 Page 2 of 2 8. Two pressure sewer lines (12' and 16' diameter), one on each side of the bridge, currently pass under the levee. These sewer lines create additional challenges to construction of a diaphragm wall, if such a wall were to be proposed as a remediation measure. Potential options are to move the towers off the levee or build a series of diaphragm walls to avoid the pressure sewer lines. Geotechnical Branch has not completed a full review of the plans/designs, but the issues identified would be show stoppers without further planning/design. ' have already contacted Oncor, TxDOT and the city requesting a meeting this afternoon (3 December). If you have any questions, please contact me. Thank you Gene T. Rice, Jr., P.E.
