JR Engineering is providing professional construction management services, including construction administration, materials testing, and construction inspection for the McKay Regional Drainage Way project in Westminster, Colorado.  The McKay Regional Drainage Way project consists of the construction of improvements to the McKay drainage channel and the construction of an eight acre regional detention pond.  Other elements of the project include the construction of two box culverts, three inlet structures, two large drop structures, 750 feet of storm drainage pipe up to 66”, an outlet structure, a pedestrian bridge, and nearly two miles of concrete trail.  JR Engineering is providing the City with plan reviews, submittal and RFI reviews, pay application reviews, materials testing, construction inspections, construction management, and public relations.

The aging commercial area between Huron and Melody Streets north of 106th in the City of Northglenn suffered a severe loss of business over the years to newer adjacent shopping complexes.  Working with JR Engineering, Wenk Associates proposed improvements to strengthen the existing qualities of the area, connecting residential, commercial and open space areas while improving traffic safety and undergrounding aging utilities.  The proposed streetscape improvements along 106th Avenue, including a civic plaza, entry monuments, bikeway improvements and an overlook at Croke Reservoir will improve the image of the area to attract investment and redevelopment.  A regional bus transfer station is integrated into the plan.  Street trees, pedestrian lights, and sidewalk improvements connect a proposed civic plaza to shopping to the east and a proposed reservoir overlook on the west.  JR provided Construction Management, Inspections, and Material Testing to complete this project.

 JR Engineering led Design-Build project.  JR teamed with Asphalt Specialties and WL Contractors for design and construction management of a 5 lane major arterial with intersection improvements including asphalt paving, curb and gutter, sidewalk, traffic signals, striping, and landscaping.  Services included preliminary construction plans, design survey, right-of-way maps, utility design survey, pavement design, traffic engineering, utility relocation coordination, legal exhibits, roadway construction, landscaping, traffic signal construction, construction staking, materials testing, and as-builts.  During construction, a major Qwest utility vault and fiber-optic transmission lines were discovered to be in conflict with the proposed widening.  JR was able to redesign portions of the roadway to avoid the conflict without increasing the overall project costs.

JR Engineering provided professional construction management services, including bidding services and construction inspection for the Mountain Avenue, Phase 1 project in Berthoud, Colorado.  The Mountain Avenue project consists of three phases, two of which are being paid for in bonds.  Phase 1 consists of replacing the sanitary sewer system from Second Street to halfway between Fifth and Sixth Streets, as well as an upgrade of the waterline from the east of First Street to Sixth Street.  A stormwater line was installed from Firth Street to Second Street, 300 feet of the sewer line was replaced per week.
JR Engineering provided the Town with plan reviews, procurement services, materials testing, construction management, and public relations.  This project involved extensive coordination with CDOT and involved CDOT procedures, and documentation.

JR Engineering is providing professional construction management services for the Heritage Hills Home Owner’s Association in Lone Tree, Colorado.  The work consists of inspection and analysis of the current condition of all asphalt and concrete roads, curb, gutter, and sidewalk within the Heritage Hills Development resulting in a recommendation of a pavement maintenance plan.  JR Engineering provided a 5 year phased pavement management system for the HOA based on a $200,000 per year budget for roadway repair and yearly evaluation of roadway conditions resulting in adequate roadway conditions for the development.  The management system repairs include crack seal, slurry seal, patching, mill and overlay of asphalt along with replacement of concrete curb, gutter, sidewalk, pan, and pavement.  As a result of the recommendation, the HOA has requested JR Engineering provide additional services for full construction management services for contract documents and specifications, bidding out the first phase of the pavement management system, evaluation of bids and award the project, review of submittals, inspection and close out of the work.

 JR Engineering was the project lead, teaming with LaFarge and Tarco for the design and construction of 5 miles of roadway.  This project involved both the private and public sectors.  The project included design and construction of the following elements:  Roadway, Erosion Control, Drainage/Culvert, Floodplain Analysis, Environmental, Land Surveying, Mapping, Utility Coordination and Potholing, Right-of-Way/Easement Acquisition, Geotechnical and Materials Engineering, Construction Management and Construction Staking. 

JR Engineering led a design-build team to provided design improvements, paving, and construction for an existing two-lane, 24-foot rural county gravel roadway with minimal shoulders.  This section of roadway is immediately north of the County’s current project.  The improvements provided a 24-foot paved roadway section with 6-foot recycled asphalt shoulders and roadside drainage ditches.  88th Avenue was widened to provide left turn lanes.  The roadway profile was adjusted to improve the sight distance, while maintaining the roadway within the existing right-of-way.  Existing driveways were regraded to match the proposed road profile and new culvert installed to convey the roadside drainage.

JR researched existing property boundaries and prepared legal descriptions of the necessary temporary construction easements.  JR also notified existing utility owners of the project and performed dry utility potholing to identify any areas of utility lowering.  For construction services, JR provided construction management, daily site visits, prepared necessary design, weekly construction activity reports, progress reports, and provided quality assurance checks. 

JR Engineering led a design-build team to provide this design-build storm sewer replacement project for the City of Colorado Springs.  The project consisted of a total replacement of the existing CMP storm sewer pipe with over 2500 l.f. of RCP storm sewer (15 inch to 48 inch), 14 manholes, 4 cast-in-place junction boxes, and replacement or modification of 14 inlets.  The existing roadway was reconstructed or resurfaced as required, along with the removal and replacement of curb and gutter.  Several areas of the existing CMP storm sewer system had corroded and collapsed requiring the City to seal off the existing inlets to prevent stormwater from further eroding the roadway subgrade.  The exact alignment of the existing CMP was unknown and existing pipe junctions were not located at manholes.  The design-build process allowed JR Engineering to uncover the existing pipe, perform field surveys, and quickly modify the storm sewer design to accommodate existing pipe laterals and dry utility conflicts.  During the design-build process JR Engineering was able to perform and monitor hydraulic calculations of the system and make improvements to increase the capacity of the sewer system while providing for future expansion. 

JR Engineering was the lead of Design-Build team with Quality Paving for replacement of a deficient bridge at the crossing of Riverdale Road and Brantner Ditch.  Adams County contracted with JR after the existing bridge experienced a recent failure requiring immediate attention.  JR was able to design, obtain all necessary permits and approvals, and construct the project within the strict project schedule utilizing a design-build project delivery method.  The project included the design and construction of a Precast Conspan Bridge Structure, Wingwalls, Guardrail, Roadway Improvements, Riprap Stabilization, and Erosion Control.  The project required extensive dry utility coordination, supporting an existing utility conduit in-place during construction, and performing utility relocations on behalf of the dry utility companies.  JR also provided: Hydraulic Analysis, Ditch Company Permit Coordination, Utility Coordination, Geotechnical and Materials Engineering, Right-of-Way/Easement Acquisition, Construction Management, and Construction Staking.

JR Engineering led a design-build team with WL Contractors for the design and construction of traffic signal improvements at Malley Drive and Highline Drive intersection.  The project also included safety improvements to the 112th Avenue and Larson Drive intersection located near a regional elementary school.  Both intersections had safety concerns and frequent accidents involving vehicles and pedestrians.  Pedestrian safety at the Malley Dr. intersection was further compromised due to the Farmers Canal trail crossing located just 40 feet east of the intersection.  The trail was realigned to cross at the intersection and a new traffic signal was installed.  The project also installed fiber optic interconnect to communicate with the master controller located on Washington Street.

For the 112th Ave. and Larson Dr. intersection several safety improvement options were evaluated including in-ground flashing crosswalk lights.  Based on the review and the City’s available budget a traditional school crossing was installed with advanced flashing warning signs.
