Location: Charlottesville, VA
Client: Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT)

Meadow Creek Parkway connects East Rio Road with Melbourne Road in the City of Charlottesville. The goal was to provide an additional north-south route and improvements to existing roadways resulting in more efficient, safer traffic operations and connection of neighborhoods.

Volkert provided comprehensive inspection services covering all components of construction including the roads, bridges, trails, park and roadway landscaping, drainage and stormwater management facilities, and signals.

To maintain traffic during construction, one of the bridges was constructed in 3 phases. In addition to regular inspections, Volkert conducted weekly work zone safety checks and after-rainfall checks, and paid close attention to erosion and sediment controls to protect Meadow Creak.

The bridge over Meadow Creek is a new, 3-span, steel-girder bridge on curved alignment and is 280 feet in length. The 2-lane bridge over the railroad tracks was replaced with a new, 4-lane, 3-span, steel-girder bridge 195 feet in length.  The 108-foot-long pedestrian bridge is a prefabricated, steel, truss span with composite deck flooring.

Scope of Work: Construction Inspection of New Bridges and Road, Problem Resolution, Work Zone Safety Checks, Utility Coordination, Materials Testing,Schedule Monitoring, Coordination with the NS Railroad
