Completion of Kingsbridge Way Project (October 22, 2015)

10/22/15 The barge is leaving!

10/22/15 The barge is leaving!

With this project completed we are looking forward to resolving the funding issues for the additional prioritized projects.

The ongoing monitoring of the walls has indicated that the lack of rain in our area has been a bit of a blessing and yet the projected El Nino has raised concerns that the projected weather systems could bring an end to that small reprieve. In addition, the monitoring has brought to light additional areas of concern as our seawalls continue to age.

We have continued to meet with the City monthly to discuss and review work on the seawalls and facilitate communication with homeowners as needed. We have also continued to meet with the City to determine how we will finance the ultimate repairs of all the seawalls.

We hope to see you all at the upcoming Annual Meeting. We also hope that we can raise our membership to 100% in the coming year.

Registration 8:30 am (bring your check!)
Meeting 9 am

Please carpool if you can or walk if you are able as the meeting room and parking fees at the hotel come out the meager funds for the HOA dues!

10:40 Meeks Construction Timeline
Meeks Construction (Ken Allred)

  • Dates for boat & dock removals June 1st
    * (
    3 Shared Docks and boats to be moved: 2020 & 2030, 2040 & 2050, 2100 & 2110
    Boats only to be moved: 2120
    2000 & 2010 no move required but during loading to and from barge access to channel may be limited.
  • Estimated timeline and work schedule: 4 months to complete – they will probably not be working weekends but may be working earlier and later than normal construction times to take advantage of best tides for this work. They will be staging equipment in the parking area of the green-strip between Kingsbridge Way and Jamestown Way. Traffic may be slightly impacted when they are loading equipment to and from the work barge.
  • Video Documentation May 26th & 27th  (addresses on Kingsbridge Way: 2000, 2010, 2020, 2030, 2040, 2050, 2100, 2110, 2120, 2013, 2140, 2144)
    These inspection and evaluations will be performed to assess and document current conditions of decks and properties. It would be beneficial if this could all be scheduled on a SINGLE DAY either the 26th or 27th of MAY.

10:50 Transystems
Cameron Duncan answered a question regarding surface spalling and the degrading condition of other walls, which lead into him explaining the analysis, prioritization and monitoring the entirety of Mandalay Bay.

Mr Duncan illustrated the engineering design of Kingsbridge Stabilization project and clarified that this project has nothing to do with another high priority project which is an R&D test project of the current products and processes for applying a surface repair and protection to the face of the seawalls throughout the harbor – all of which have been documented and are being monitored every 6 months. But the actual R&D Project is unfunded and there is not enough funding from the annual assessment funds to fund this project even with a 50/50 agreement with the city.

Cameron also spoke of additional repairs and maintenance that have been defined and prioritized and are currently unfunded and expressed concerns regarding the difference between the unfunded amount and the many times higher costs of replacing following a failure.

11:00 Questions & Answers
Facilitated by Ray Williams

Questions were asked about boat relocation Resources (see below)

A question was asked as to the status of the slope protection projects and Ray answered that that project was now complete.

Questions were asked about the condition of the walls at individual addresses. Cameron Duncan explained the monitoring and recordkeeping by “Block” within each channel. Ray introduced Robert Freeland as the HOA rep engineer with all of the records who would be happy to answer any questions regarding specific locations. Robert Freeland

Ray reminded us that there are two types of seawalls: the “Boise” wall in the eastern part of the development and the “Zurn” wall in the western portion. Peninsula road separates the two different walls. Together the seawalls are more than 7 miles long. (

The various issues and conditions are studied and considered as one infrastructure with varying needs.

The first steps are also being taken for the testing to evaluate the needs of dredging for the entire are north of the bridge.

11:30 Thank you
Bill Clark thanked all for attending!

Kingsbridge Way – Wall Repair – Mandalay Bay Seawalls Project, Oxnard
water way impacted 2005 thru 2151 Jamestown Way
Project Reference: PW14-03R Category: Engineering

kingsbridge_map Project Details: The proposed repairs include drilling and installation of (20) grouted tie-backs into the earth using pre-stressing strands which are anchored into a new cast-in-place concrete beam installed on the face of the seawall. The new beam will run continuous for 196 feet on the exterior of the seawall near the mean high tide line. The work will be performed in dry conditions, but the formwork and beam will be submerged by high tides during the construction period. Drilling debris and any excess grout will be entrapped at each work station for disposal. After the wale has cured the anchors will be pull-tested and if acceptable the anchor pockets grouted. Water turbidity will be controlled by a containment boom and silt curtain around the active work area. Work includes removal, temporary storage and installation or replacement of construction interferences including private improvements (docks, gangways, guide pile and decks) within the prescribed work area. Removed concrete guide piles intended for re-installation shall be identified by property location and then either; stored on a materials barge, removed from the jobsite and stored offsite in a Contractor controlled yard, or cleaned of marine growth within 24hrs of removal to control odor and stored onsite within the 12 property work area in a stable manner which does not pose an adverse structural load, public safety or navigation risk. Project duration is 180 calendar days. Bonds required.
