On-Call Construction Inspection Services for Caltrans District 1 Projects
Project NameOn-Call Construction Inspection Services for Caltrans District 1 Projects
Project LocationMendocino/Lake Counties, CA
Green Valley Consulting Engineers provided Caltrop Corporation with On-Call Construction Inspection Services for a variety of Caltrans improvement projects. Located on State Routes and U.S. Highway 101 within Mendocino and Lake Counties, the projects range in value from $600,000 to $15 million dollars. The projects are part of Caltrop’s five-year Caltrans District 1 contract for “Professional and Technical Construction Engineering and Construction Inspection Support Services.” Improvements consist of safety upgrades (roundabout construction and metal beam guardrail installation); drainage system replacements (culverts, pipes, downdrains, inlets, and rock slope protection); and pavement maintenance (Rubberized Hot Mix Asphalt overlays.). Work also included emergency highway repairs in Lake County after the Valley Fire.
One of the greatest priorities when overseeing construction on a Caltrans project is ensuring work zone safety and mobility for motorists, bicyclists, pedestrians, and workers. Projects require lane closures, altered traffic patterns, daytime and nighttime construction activities along heavily trafficked roadways. Green Valley is proficient in enforcing, assessing, and modifying highway traffic controls. We are also accomplished with complying to safety requirements within Caltrans Construction Manual, California Code of Regulations (Cal/OSHA) – Title 8, and the California Construction Contract Standards. With each project, our goal is to minimize traffic disruptions to ensure that we “keep the public happy,” and establish a successful Contractor relationship.
For over 20 years, Windsor Road remained an “incomplete street”. Windsor High students were forced into and across the heavily-trafficked road to reach school. GVCE filled the gaps, creating safety, convenience, and comfort... The traffic improvements made by the Town of Windsor in front of Windsor High has provided families with more drop-off/pick-up convenience in front of the school... We only hear praise from families and students for all of the road improvements!Marc Elin, WHS Principal
