Martin Luther King Blvd. Rehabilitation Project (ARRA)
OE provided construction management and inspection services to the City of Lynwood on this American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA) funded project. The scope of work included mostly grind and overlay and portions of slurry seal on Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard, between Atlantic Avenue and Wright Road. It also included total removal and replacement of the asphalt on Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard between Wright Road and the I-710 freeway. In addition, the project entailed new curbs, gutters, and sidewalks, and several driveway/alley approaches. OE, in an effort to reduce costs for the City of Lynwood, provided a single staff member that was capable of handling both the Construction Management and the Inspection portions of the contract. By combining the roles, the City not only saved on project management costs, but also added clarity and completeness to the final construction product by consolidating all project information to one single source.
