2013 Neighborhood Street Program, Elgin, Illinois
Chastain provided Phase II design and Phase III construction engineering services for the 2013 Neighborhood Street Program. Project consisted of the rehabilitation of the Hammond Cookane Neighborhood in the southeasterly part of the City. Project scale included rehabilitation of 12,000 feet (25 blocks) of residential streets, replacement of approximately 3,500 feet of water main, sanitary sewer repairs, spot storm sewer repairs and full replacement of curb & gutter, ADA improvements including compliance verification for 27 crosswalks, sidewalk, and driveway aprons. Field work included full topographic survey of the 12,000 feet of roadway and parkways, inspection and assessment of utility structures, televising sewers and conducting an inventory of trees, signs, lights and other parkway features. One of the objectives of the City was to utilize an alternate HMA mix design in efforts to obtain longer pavement life. Chastain and our subconsultant, STATE Testing developed an alternate HMA pavement mix design which was utilized and will be analyzed for its longevity compared to traditional HMA mixes. Phase III services included a full time Resident Inspector, project management, material testing, layout, documentation, and on-site construction observation and close-out documentation. Project was completed in 2013 with a total construction cost of $3.1 million.
