Farm-to-Market Road 1626

RS&H performed construction engineering and inspection (CEI) on Farm-to-Market Road 1626, a major route second only to Interstate 35 in traffic volume just south of Austin, Texas. This TxDOT Pass-Through-Financing Toll Project reconstructed 3.6 miles of the road north in Hays County to Brodie Lane in Travis County.

The reconstructed roadalleviated congestion by adding capacity and reducing the accident rate. According to TxDOT, in 2004, an average of 12,800 vehicles a day used the road and that volume is projected to rise to more than 20,000 by 2024. The project consisted of widening the road to an overall pavement width of 82 feet that would consist of four travel lanes (two in each direction), a continuous left turn lane, and shoulders. By improving both the horizontal and vertical alignments of the roadway and establishing a 30-foot clear zone, sight distances along the roadway were improved, thereby increasing the safety of the roadway.

Services included inspection of:

  • All rebar and concrete placement for box culvert construction
  • Utility and drainage work
  • Earthwork, asphalt, and concrete items for roadway construction
  • Retention pond construction
  • Milling depths and cross slopes
  • Street lighting and signalization
  • Structural and friction course spread rates and cross slopes
  • Guardrail installations
  • Erosion control plan and procedures
  • Maintenance of traffic plan and implementation

Fayetteville Outer Loop Projects

RS&H is performing construction engineering and inspection (CEI) services on seven projects for NCDOT Division 6.

All American Freeway and I-295 Three-Tier Interchange – This project provides direct access to Fort Bragg and relieves congestion within the city of Fayetteville. The three-tier interchange features 11 bridges, as well as two MSE walls, two box culverts, and a noise wall. The upper tier incorporates bonded post tensioning and integrated caps.  This project also consists of 3.1 miles of new roadway construction, grading, and drainage including a tank access road at the perimeter of Fort Bragg.
SR 1003/Camden Road Phases A, B, and C – This road widening and pavement rehabilitation project allows the level of service on this corridor to be raised by adding a lane to ease peak traffic in and out of Fayetteville. Construction activities include the replacement of two bridges, including one over an active railroad, soil compaction, grading, paving, and the installation of drainage structures. Because this project is broken into three phases, coordination with local businesses and neighborhoods along this four mile stretch is vital to its success.

SR 1132/Legion Road Phases A and B – This road widening and reconstruction project was initiated due to high peak traffic volumes in the suburbs of Fayetteville. By supplying an additional lane to this corridor along Southern Avenue, residents living in this area will experience reduced congestion commuting to and from the city of Fayetteville. Construction includes four miles of road widening to multilanes, milling and resurfacing, new bridge construction, compaction, grading, paving, and the installation of drainage structures.

Glensford Drive Extension Project – This road widening, milling, and resurfacing project also includes new road construction from Glensford Road to Cliffdale Road in Fayetteville. The goal of this project was to enhance street view beautification and include safe transportation alternatives by way of pedestrian high visibility crosswalks and walkways, north and south bicycle routes, three roundabouts, pedestrian signalization, and pedestrian streetscape improvements.

Services include inspection of:

  • Steel girder field splices using direct tensioning indicators
  • Steel and concrete structures

Reconstruction of CR 54 East

RS&H CS provided construction engineering and inspection (CEI) services on the reconstruction of four miles of CR 54 from Old Pasco Road to the beginning of the Zephyrhills By-Pass for Pasco County, Florida. The original timeline for this project was three and a half to four years. However, the county requested that the contractor put the project on a fast track, and the project was completed in two years.

This project consisted of the complete demolition of the existing two-lane roadway for construction of a new six-lane divided highway that included drainage improvements, retention ponds, sidewalks, a multi-use path, MSE walls, gravity walls, utility relocation and improvements, highway lighting, signalized intersections, mitigation areas, and median landscaping. In addition to the reconstruction of CR 54, the project included the construction of two new roadways.

This project completes an eight-year process of improving traffic flow through the Wesley Chapel area. RS&H CS has been fortunate to be part of the county’s team since 2004, providing CEI services for both re-construction projects on CR 54.

Widening and Reconstruction of Beach Boulevard

Beach Boulevard (US 90/SR 212) is a major east-west route on the eastern side of Duval County, Florida, and is a primary commuter and hurricane evacuation route. It connects State Road A1A in Jacksonville Beach at the Atlantic Ocean to the heart of Jacksonville, just east of Interstate 95.

Beach Boulevard varies between four and six lanes along its 14.8-mile length. The 1.5-mile section between Hodges Boulevard and San Pablo Road underwent construction to provide a six-lane roadway.
With 40,700 motorists a day using this segment of Beach Boulevard, the need for improvements was evident as the roadway serves residents, tourists, and other visitors to the area and is an evacuation route for coastal residents during hurricane season.

The project between the roads included drainage, utility, lighting, signalization, and landscape improvements. The improvements provided six 12-foot wide travel lanes (three in each direction), four-foot wide bike lanes next to the outside lanes, and five-foot wide sidewalks on both sides of the roadway. Considering the need for public transportation, the new six-lane section included four designated bus bays for Jacksonville Transportation Authority buses to pull out of the travel lanes to pickup and drop off bus riders.
