Madison Street & Skypark Drive Reconstruction
OE provided inspection services to the City of Torrance on the Madison Street and Skypark Drive Reconstruction project. The project limits included the Skypark Drive and Madison Street intersection, Skypark Drive from Madison St. to Hawthorne Blvd. and Madison St. from Skypark Drive to Lomita Boulevard. The project limits have two lanes running in each direction, with a two way left turn lane which becomes a solid striped median in some areas. The project limits also have a raised median with stamped concrete at the Hawthorne Boulevard project limits. The City of Torrance Land Use Element classified the project limits as general commercial. The project included reconstruction of the AC within the project limits, removal and replacement of sidewalk, curb and gutter, curb ramps, and driveways, minor landscaping, and installation of traffic signal equipment including new video detection systems. The reconstruction method differs, with portions of the roadway being reconstructed with AC over Cement Treated Soil (CTS), and other areas called out for AC over CMB. The work also entails rehabilitation of the Meadow Park parking lot located adjacent to the Torrance Municipal Airport on the east and a shopping center on the west just south of the project limits.
