I-70 Twin Tunnels (Veterans Memorial Tunnels)

RS&H provided construction administration services on the $106 I-70 Twin Tunnels project for CDOT that added one eastbound lane from the East Idaho Springs interchange to US 6.

Inspection of the tunnel elements included concrete mud slab placement, formation drain installation, footer forms, rebar, concrete placements, liner rebar, Class 1 concrete finishing of liner, and contact grouting installation. The tunnel walls required inspection of all forms, rebar, and concrete placement. Inspection of roadway elements included the removal of asphalt, guardrails, and structure excavations; installation of storm drains, guardrail, and pavement markings; placement of ABC for subgrade; and asphalt pavement.
