Stevenson Drive Roadway Improvement Project




PROJECT NAME: Stevenson Drive Roadway Improvements
OWNER: City of Sparta
LOCATION: Sparta, Randolph County, Illinois
CONSTRUCTION COST: $480,000
YEAR COMPLETED: 2008 (Pending)
PROJECT DESCRIPTION: The City of Sparta employed our firm to prepare the preliminary and final plans, specifications, and estimates for the improvement of a 1,121 L.F. (0.21 mile) portion of Stevenson Drive.  This City street is classified as a collector and is located within an area containing both residential and commercial development.  It serves to carry local traffic to homes, schools, parks, and businesses.  The project is funded with Motor Fuel Tax (MFT) Funds as administered by the Illinois Department of Transportation.  During construction, the entire road was closed to thru traffic, but the project was phase-constructed to maintain emergency vehicle access and allow entry to local homes and businesses.  The project included new storm sewer pipe and inlets, new concrete integral curb and gutter, lime-modified subgrade, sub-base granular material, concrete pavement, driveway repair, and concrete sidewalk.  Close coordination with City officials was required as the project scope was expanded during construction.  Our firm was also retained to perform construction services including staking, materials testing, construction observation and contract administration.
