Rails to Trails Project


OE provided inspection services for the construction of a 1,850-foot bike and foot path in the City of Brea. The project included a 10-foot wide, paved, and striped two-way bike path and adjacent semi-permeable specialized DG footpaths, with varying widths of 4.0 to 5.5 feet. The project also entailed a geotechnical investigation, minimal landscaping, and bringing a connecting path from a nearby parking structure up to ADA standards. In addition, the scope included raising five manholes and directing runoff water to the natural bio-swale. An electrical conduit was installed along the length of the project for future use, and two driveways within the limits required a grind and overlay. OE’s inspector coordinated with the County of Orange and the City of Brea to resolve Right-of-Way and meandering issues. Caltrans coordination was essential for completing this project, and intensive traffic control at Imperial Highway was also necessary during the installation of a new pedestrian signal.
