Old Town West Improvements, City of Thousand Oaks

The Old Town West project was comprised of the design of street improvements for Los Robles Road between Live Oak Street and Fairview Road, and Fairview Road between Crescent Way and Royal Oaks.  Due to existing geometrics and to meeting the goal of a continuous ADA compliant walkway, it was decided to extend the design of street improvements down Royal Oaks Drive.  The neighborhood was very rural with minimal curb, gutter and sidewalk improvements and virtually no street lighting with substantial encroachment of property owner into the Public right-of-way.

The Project was designed in two Phases, Phase 1 being Preliminary Design and Phase 2 being final Design.  Phase 1 included topographic survey of the Project, identification of utility issues and conflicts, identification of existing R.O.W. conflicts and several alternatives for the City to select from as well as associated Opinions of Estimated Construction Costs.

Once an alternative was selected to meet the desired construction budget final design was performed that included but was not limited to curb, gutter, sidewalk, driveways and associated aprons, utility relocation (SCE), gas and water service relocation, road re-profiling, street light improvements, storm drain improvements and substantial rights-of-way entry.  Numerous offsite and driveway conforms were incorporated into the Project with great success.  The Project was completed in late 2012.

This Project impacted numerous single family residences and some apartments.  Coordination was extensive as well as community input on the Project.

Carrillo Hill Sidewalk, City of Santa Barbara

For the Carrillo Hill Sidewalk Improvements Phase 1 Project, the City of Santa Barbara was interested in providing a continuous pathway for at least one side of Carrillo Street and Meigs Road to enhance and increase pedestrian travel and to increase transit use by providing better access to bus stops.  The project consisted of both curb adjacent and meandering concrete sidewalk, landscaped parkway, curb and gutter and access ramps at three (3) intersections on the north side of the street. Retaining walls were also constructed to accommodate existing topographical variations.  A number of conforms were also incorporated at various properties to accommodate existing conditions. The project also included landscaping and street lighting.

This project required the coordination of Civil, Landscape Architect, Structural, Electrical and Traffic Engineering disciplines.

Cabrillo Boulevard from State Street to Castillo Street received an asphalt overlay as part of the pavement preparation. A number of City lots and facility lots from four different City Departments were included in the Zone 6 Project.  Those lots included the Waterfront Department: Leadbetter Parking Lot,  Leadbetter Bike Path and Leadbetter Entrance Lot; Parking Department: including Lots 8, 12, Carrillo Commuter Lot and Cota Commuter Lot;  Facilities Department: Fire Station No. 4 and Pershing Park Lot; and the Wastewater Department: El Estero Waste Water Treatment Plant.
