Crenshaw Blvd. & Lomita Blvd. Intersection Improvement

OE provided Construction Management & Inspection Services for this arterial roadway and intersection rehabilitation project in the Cities of Lomita and Torrance. As a joint agency project, OE coordinated extensively with both the City of Lomita and Torrance in order to ensure success of the project. The project limits spanned 1,300 LF on Crenshaw Boulevard to the north and south of Lomita Blvd., and 2,900 LF on Lomita Blvd. from Crenshaw Blvd. to Narbonne Avenue. The construction included 4,800 tons of ARHM overlay, 1,500 tons of AC base paving, field identification and reconstruction of failed pavement areas, PCC curb ramp, sidewalk and curb and gutter replacements, traffic signal modifications including the installation of a new video detection system and the rewiring of the intersections, and roadway signing and striping improvements. The project also included chairing and presenting at a community coordination meeting in order to disseminate project information. OE worked with the Contractor and the City to negotiate field quantity reductions and change orders which created a large amount of project savings on the job.
