Telegraph Road Median Improvements & Roadway Rehabilitation


OE provided Construction Management & Inspection Services to the City of Pico Rivera on the Telegraph Road Landscape Median Improvements Project. The project limits were on Telegraph Road, between Rosemead Boulevard and Passons Boulevard and on Rosemead Boulevard between Telegraph Road and Vista Del Rosa. This high profile project was funded by the Federal Highway Safety Improvement Program (HSIP) and Proposition C. A portion of the project limits were in the City of Downey, and multi-agency coordination was essential for the successful completion of the project. Telegraph Road is a major residential and commercial thoroughfare running east-west. The roadway rehabilitation comprised of reconstruction of heavily deteriorated areas, including the Telegraph Road and Lindell Avenue intersection. The work also included a 2.5" grind and ARHM overlay. The project also called for curb and gutter, sidewalk, curb ramps, and landscape median improvements. The landscape component entailed fine grading, automatic irrigation installation, constructing a moisture barrier, and placement of over 16,000 tons of mulch, nearly 2,000 shrubs, 85 trees, and 50 brown trunk palms. This project was hailed as a landmark project for the City, and a ribbon cutting ceremony was held to celebrate the completion of work.
