This fast-track project consists of the overall design-build process including public relations, design, permitting, utility coordination, quality assurance & quality control, environmental protection, safety, schedule and construction for this $72 million project. The project elements included the pavement rehabilitation, drainage and safety improvements for a 12 mile section of Interstate 264 in the City of Virginia Beach. Project scope included the installation of over 210,000 tons of asphalt, 120,000 SY of full depth pavement replacement, 70,000 LF of shoulder and median barrier modification, over 400 nightly MOT/Lane Closures, 5,000 LF of trench drain, jack and boring of drainage pipe, 130 storm drain structure modifications, 70,000 LF of guardrail upgrades, signage and millions of LF of pavement markings. Curtis is responsible for the communication and coordination with VDOT, City of Virginia Beach, regulatory agencies and other stakeholders on the project.
The Curtis team was instrumental in expediting the schedule in order to advance design, permitting and construction of all work within a 22 month period. Using the unique flexibility allowed only with the Design-Build we developed phased design submissions to allow for work to begin within 2 months of project award and then obtain all approvals in order to ensure work will be completed on time schedule. This includes incorporating over $10 million in added scope without changing the project completion date.
The Curtis team’s focus on safety and accident prevention has resulted, to date, in over 200,000 man hours without a single recordable injury for this project. Curtis is salvaging the existing concrete material within the I-264 full depth pavement repairs and will recycle over 60,000 tons of material in an environmentally positive way.
