Visalia Road Improvement Project Phase 1
This project was a major street reconstruction and widening project at one of the major entrances to the City of Exeter. This project included complete street reconstruction and widening of over 0.5 miles of Visalia Road. Through 4Creeks value engineering efforts the street section was changed to a Full Depth with Reclamation (FDR-C) section to save costs and minimize the impact to existing underground utilities. The project included installation of a new sewer lift station and traffic signal. At a request from the City, 4Creeks staff coordinated a new and safer location for the new lift station than what was shown on the original plans.
Major utility relocations were coordinated by the 4Creeks team with Frontier, CVIN, Southern CA Gas Co, and Southern CA Edison company (SCE). 4Creeks coordinated with the design engineer and SCE to redesign plans and save the City over $400,000 in unnecessary overhead utility undergrounding costs. 4Creeks also redesigned the landscaping on the project per a request from the City which resulted in a really clean and pretty looking entrance to the City.
4Creeks was hired to perform the construction management, inspection, surveying, labor compliance and materials testing services for this project. We teamed with NV5 to assist with a portion of the labor compliance, inspection, and materials testing work.
4Creeks used our proactive construction management philosophy and teamwork type mentality to work effectively with all parties involved and complete this project on time and under budget. 4Creeks staff saved the City of Exeter over $600,000 on this project through value engineering and our proactive construction management approach.
This project has won two awards:
