NV5 is providing the full suite of construction management and inspection services for highway widening, new highway alignment, roadway surfacing, and drainage basins in Caltrans’ Central Region (District 6) through discrete task orders. NV5 assistant resident engineers are responsible for the preparation of correspondence, coordinating and chairing meetings with contractors, making field determinations, providing recommendations for change orders, the review of potential claims, and the preparation of responses and reports. Additionally, our construction inspectors are responsible for the inspection of all day-to-day construction activities, including monitoring public safety and convenience.
As many of the task orders have required nighttime work, heightened safety procedures to protect both construction workers and the traveling public has been central to our approach to managing construction activities.
Recent projects include: Highway 99 — $21 million widening of freeway from six to eight lanes and placement of Portland cement concrete (PCC) and hot-mix asphalt (HMA); Highway 99 — $80 million replacement of existing roadway pavement with concrete pavement; Highway 223 — $3.7 million widening of outside shoulder and construction of a rumble strip; Highway 5 — $11 million replacement of existing concrete and construction of concrete shoulder; State Route 46 — $47 million widening of the existing road to four lanes; Highway 119 — $3.2 million shoulder widening and HMA overlay; and Highway 5 — $28 million replacement of concrete panel and reconstruction of the lane and shoulder.
The NV5 team has worked on dozens of projects in the Kern County service area with up to 10 individuals assigned to various task orders. Working as integrated teams with Caltrans’ resident engineers and inspectors, these tasks required extensive coordination with Caltrans, the California Highway Patrol, and local jurisdictions.
