The project consisted of upgrades to a public roadway that had deteriorated and required pavement to be replaced with the addition of curb and gutter; sidewalk; and landscaping. A roadway dip section which was an on-going drainage inconvenience to the neighborhood, was replaced with a 10-year low flow crossing consisting of a concrete box culvert with a drop inlet. Modifications to existing City of Phoenix waterline and sanitary sewer facilities were part of the project. The project also successfully replaced an intersection with a traffic circle (roundabout). Project challenges that were successfully addressed included traffic control (partial street closures); not worsening existing drainage conditions; and satisfying involved neighbors. Wood/Patel’s construction management team observed construction progress and enforced all requirements of the contract documents, in addition to leading timely resolution of contractor’s field issues. Wood/Patel assisted the Town of Paradise Valley with pre-project preliminary construction costs for Council and project budget; final design (construction documents and specifications); public bidding support; and construction management.
