Ocean Ave. & Marguerite Ave. Reconstruction Project

OE provided design engineering services on the Ocean Avenue & Marguerite Avenue Reconstruction Project for the City of Newport Beach. The project limits consist of Marguerite Avenue from E. Pacific Coast Highway to Ocean Avenue, and on Ocean Avenue from Marguerite Avenue to Carnation Avenue, a total distance of nearly 4,000 LF. Marguerite Avenue and Ocean Avenue serve as the main route from the E. Pacific Coast Highway to Newport Beach’s Corona Del Mar beach. These two residential streets are one lane in each direction with on-street parking and consisted of Portland Cement Concrete. With the process of rehabilitating/reconstructing cracked and deteriorated concrete pavement being a complicated procedure, the City of Newport Beach selected Onward Engineering to investigate the condition of the concrete pavement and arrive at a financially feasible solution that minimizes impacts to the residents and does not impact access to the beach during the warm season. The project included the design of approximately 350 feet of narrowing the existing street section and introducing a new landscaped parkway using plants and materials agreeable with the City’s Architectural and Landscape Review Committee. The work also entailed coring the existing pavement to determine the existing section configuration and sub-grade strength, extensive topographic survey, and resetting monuments and right-of-way.
