Oak Hill Parkway (US 290) Improvements

RS&H is part of the consultant team procuring the Oak Hill Parkway design-build project for the Texas Department of Transportation (TxDOT). The project will include the design and construction of approximately 6 miles of non-tolled improvements along US 290 from the east end of Circle Drive to Loop 1 (MoPac), 1.2 miles of non-tolled improvements along SH 71 West from US 290 to Silvermine Drive, and reconstruction of the US 290 and SH 71 interchange in Austin.

RS&H is reviewing the US 290 schematic, facilitating risk register workshops, and Federal Highway Administration cost estimate review. Additional workshops included utilities, DBE networking, City of Austin Water Utility, and one-on-one meetings. We also conducted a shadow-bid estimate and prepared the project management plan and initial financial plan.

RS&H developed contractual provisions to preserve iconic trees and a tiered approach of mediations and remedies for impacts to heritage trees. We also developed a risk-sharing mechanism between TxDOT and the contractor due to likelihood of karst features in the project limits. The team proactively developed a City of Austin conceptual design and inner local agreement between TxDOT and the City of Austin to expedite negotiation of relocation costs.
