Eagle Roundabouts…by the numbers
We’ve been saying if for weeks, but as of the past couple of days, it’s really starting to look like the truth: Barring just a bit of landscaping that will be completed next spring, Eagle’s Eby Creek Road roundabout project is complete.
Motorists have noted that the expansive new roadway feels big enough to land a 747 jet, and the morning and evening traffic moves briskly along the four-lane roadway.
As a final nod to the construction that has characterized daily life in Eagle for the past two years, here’s a final breakdown of the Eby Creek Road construction numbers:
9,677 man-hours — Time paid for flaggers on the scene.
261 — The number of orange barrels motorists had to dodge during construction.
22,935 square yards — The amount of concrete poured for the project. For comparison that equals 3.58 NFL football fields or 23,222,092 pounds.
4,349 linear feet — Water line installed. The amount equals 0.82 miles.
964 linear feet — Wastewater line installed.
2,766 linear feet — Storm drainage pipe installed. The amount equals 0.52 miles.
1,511 cubic yards — Amount of concrete poured for retaining walls. The amount equals 6,119,550 pounds.
2,969 tons — Amount of permanent asphalt paving. The amount equals 5,938,000 pounds.
10,707 square yards — Amount of temporary asphalt paving for detours. The amount equals 1.67 NFL football fields.
103,514 pounds — Amount of steal reinforcing bars in concrete throughout the project.
2,839 cubic yards — The amount of “muck” removed from the project area. That equals 315 dump truck loads.
2,694 linear feet — The length of portable concrete barriers used during construction. The amount equals 0.51 miles.
