Citywide Residential Street Rehabilitation Project


OE provided design, construction management, and inspection services to the City of Placentia for the 2012 Citywide Residential Street Rehabilitation Project.  The project was funded by a variety of sources including Gas Tax, Proposition 1B, Measure M1, and Measure M2. Our analysis included 75 miles of roadway and the actual design spanned 35 miles. The scope of work entailed rehabilitating the roadway using primarily Type II slurry seal, chip seal, and portions of full R&R. The final design included rehabilitating 41% of the City’s residential roadways, including 109 new ADA compliant curb ramps, 5,445 tons of slurry, 105,050 SY of chip seal, grind and overlay with 35,000 tons of AC paving, adjusting 209 manholes and 369 water valves, and 2,363 LF of curb and gutter. OE reviewed the City’s 2011 Pavement Management Report, and completed a reconnaissance field survey to better understand the existing pavement conditions. The field survey included walking each proposed roadway to make recommendations for necessary localized AC R&R patches, and to identify damaged curb & gutter and uplifted, or non-ADA compliant sidewalks. OE provided a location matrix with photographs for each recommended repair, along with our estimated budget allocation for each location and work item. OE also communicated extensively with residents, spending in excess of 20 hours per week fielding calls.
