Stony Point Road Reconstruction & Widening Project Phases 1 & 2
Project NameStony Point Road Reconstruction & Widening Project Phases 1 & 2
Project LocationSanta Rosa, CA
Green Valley Consulting Engineers is performing both day- and nighttime Construction Inspection and overall Program Management for the $10M, transformation of this principal arterial from a two-lane roadway into a four- lane boulevard (between Highway 12 and Hearn Avenue). The project was ‘split’ into two phases per funding constraints and has been in progress since 2009 with final completion expected this Summer. Green Valley was also responsible for all surveys (topographic, property, and as-built), Right-Of-Way research and acquisition, and landscape design (plantings & irrigation).
The throughway is being completely reconstructed and repaved with a long-lasting fiber reinforced asphalt concrete. Improvements include: new designated bike lanes on both sides of the street, ADA sidewalks and curb ramps, driveway approaches, a landscaped median, a dedicated right-hand turn lane (onto Sebastopol Road), the widening of an existing culvert bridge, traffic signal improvements at six intersections, retaining and sound walls, and street lighting and landscaping enhancements.
Located in southwest Santa Rosa, the northern portion of the project area is situated directly adjacent to the State Highway 12 on- and off-ramps in a Caltrans right-of-way. Green Valley is acting as the City’s representative for all required Caltrans documentation and processes. These include encroachment permits, highway ramp closures, and the field implementation of all required traffic controls. Close coordination with local businesses is also required for resolving construction issues such as the timing of utility shutdowns, right-of-way purchases, and private landscape replacement. Program management involves coordinating with all stakeholders, outside agencies and utility departments, technical reviews and recommendations, and the application of all City/Caltrans standards.
“I want to extend our deep appreciation to Sean, Charlie, and Gene for their outstanding commitment, work ethic and the professional manner they continue to demonstrate on the Stony Point Road Widening Project and for the many hard nights that they have spent inspecting the paving operations. I also want to thank you for your support by adjusting your staffing commitments and maintaining inspection continuity despite the extended construction schedule. Green Valley has been a great partner with the City on this project, and we thank you!”Lori Urbanek, P.E. / Deputy Director at City of Santa Rosa Public Works
