Location: Fairfax, VA
Client: Fort Myer Construction Corporation

In partnership with a contractor, Volkert provided services for a $45 million VDOT design-build project along I-66, one of busiest urban interstates in Northern Virginia.  The project required night time construction, a phased construction plan to accomplish the work while keeping the interstate open to traffic, and coordination with multiple other mega-project construction activities occurring on adjacent interstates.  Volkert served as lead engineer, quality assurance manager and public outreach specialist for the pavement rehabilitation project along a 6.5-mile segment of I-66.  The project included full-depth patching of concrete pavement and asphalt overlay; roadway/geometric and drainage improvements; and sign, lighting, and ITS upgrades.

Volkert developed a complex TMP that maintained traffic for more than 170,000 motorist per day. During construction, Volkert closely monitored work zone safety and traffic control.   A temporary pre-cast modular patching system, devised by Volkert and the contractor, was used to extend nighttime production hours and accelerate construction.  In addition, Volkert prepared and implemented a public communications plan.

During construction, Volkert conducted quality assurance inspection services to confirm that construction, material testing, and sampling complied with the contract requirements.

Scope of Work:  Drainage Design; Traffic Design, ITS Design, QA/QC Plan, Independent Testing, Pubic Outreach, On-site field inspection and engineering services.
