The Villages project is a master-planned community development in Black Diamond, Washington. Once complete, The Villages will provide residential, commercial, office, retail, educational and recreational uses to the small city of Black Diamond.
In 2014, GBI was contracted to clear more than 100 acres of forest and mass grade the site. Now, in 2016, GBI is completing the initial phases of the development, which includes clearing and grading another 75 acres of land and bringing 11,000 linear feet of water main from offsite to the development. GBI is also constructing a sewer lift station, two residential plats that total 268 lots and more than 60,000 linear feet of onsite sewer, water and storm drain lines. In addition, GBI will be building a 4.5-million-gallon storm water holding pond and a 10.4-million-gallon storm water infiltration pond.
This is a small portion of the master development project, which will continue to expand over the next 10 to 15 years.
On Thursday, May 5, the Oregon Zoo Elephant Lands Habitat was awarded the 2016 Project of the Year by the Oregon Daily Journal of Commerce.

TOP STORY | BIG ISLAND
Once the corridor of royalty for the first capital city in the Kingdom of Hawai‘i, the Queen Ka‘ahumanu Highway corridor now provides 35 to 55 mph access from Kailua-Kona and the Kona International Airport to the famous gold coast on the Island of Hawai‘i.
The Queen Ka‘ahumanu Highway Widening, Phase 2 initial contract value is $76.2 million to widen and construct two additional southbound travel lanes from approximately 1,150 feet south of the Kealakehe Parkway intersection to a point approximately 1,700 feet north of the Keahole Airport intersection. Since the project’s initial release in 2008, there were a number of bid protests and design changes, which extended the start date from 2010 to its actual start in September of 2015. These changes and time escalation are expected to increase the final contract value to over $85 million.
Much of the project corridor will require hard rock excavation to achieve the desire design grades and will require heavy ripping, hydraulic hammering and potentially the use of drilling and blasting. Other areas will require substantial quantities of imported fill material. The project improvements to the existing roadway include: widening the existing two-lane highway into a divided four-lane configuration capable of conveying traffic volumes in excess of those projected for the next 20 years; extension and potential realignment of several drainage structures; utility relocations and the installation of improved water and sewer systems throughout the length of the project; the installation of six signalized intersections and comprehensive highway lighting to improve the safety of the roadway; and context and culturally sensitivity improvements along the full length of the improved corridor.
Mass excavation for the project started on Sept. 8, 2015, with an expected completion in March of 2016. Both pavement and intersection improvements throughout the remainder of the roadway are expected to be completed in Sept. of 2017.
