Atlantic Avenue/Firestone Blvd. Intersection Improvements


OE provided construction management and inspection services for the City of South Gate. The project limits were on two arterial streets: Atlantic Avenue from Firestone Boulevard to Patata St. (~1,300 LF) and Firestone Boulevard, from Dorothy Avenue to Atlantic Ave. (~2,200 LF). The project involved the widening and realignment of the intersection to increase the number of thru, left turn lanes, the length of turn pockets, and right turn lanes. In addition to the widening, the scope entailed a concrete approach to the intersection; concrete intersection; grind and ARHM overlay; four legs of the intersection; 50,000 SF of sidewalk, 1,850 LF of curb and gutter, 2,100 LF of DIP waterline and 2,840 LF of recycled waterline, and 4,656 LF of median island curb with decorative landscaping and a city monument sign. This project was funded with Measure R, MTA and other state funding sources, and required the preparation of an award package and the continued upkeep of project files, invoices, reports and submittals in accordance with Caltrans’ LAPM.
