The Village of Hebron needed secondary roadway access to a large residential development, as the previous access point experienced frequent flooding. This presented a challenge for our team: Due to the depth of the existing sewer, extending the public roadway and sidewalk would mean lengthening and lowering the waterline. We worked closely with the contractor to identify an alternative corridor for the storm sewer, eliminating the need to lower the waterline. This creative solution reduced project costs while also avoiding the nuisance of pavement repairs and a water shut down for the residents. In addition, our team designed the waterline extension to provide a loop for fire safety and improved pressure and flow to the residents, creating project satisfaction across the board.
This project included the extension of 360 linear feet of public roadway and sidewalk as well as 600 linear feet of watermain.
Our team assisted in obtaining $150,000 of State Capital Improvements Funds from the Ohio Public Works Commission as well as a $50,000 loan for the Village.
Our full-service approach included survey, civil design for roadway and utilities, permitting assistance, bidding administration, and construction administration.
Construction administration services included conducting the pre-construction meeting, handling contractor coordination, reviewing and submitting pay applications to the funding agency in accordance with the grant and loan funding mechanisms, and coordinating punch list items for project close out.
