PROJECT: WESTERN AVENUE CEI
Vaughn & Melton was selected by the Tennessee Department of Transportation to provide contract administration & management, construction inspection, materials testing and surveying services on SR-62 reconstruction in Knox County.
This project included the reconstruction and widening the existing two-lane roadway to a five-lane facility, for approximately 3.9 miles, following the current alignment. The proposed design consists of four 12-foot traffic lanes, a 12-foot center lane, 10-foot outside shoulders, 2-foot curb & gutter, and 5-foot wide sidewalks.
The purpose of the improvements are to correct the geometric, structural, operational, and safety deficiencies on this section of SR 62. The primary benefits include:
Improved safety, reduced congestion and delays, and improved overall efficiency of the roadway
Enhanced economic development opportunities within the project area
Improved circulation among the communities in the project area
Improved regional accessibility through the project area
Reduced travel times
V&M is providing highly experienced personnel for project management, project administration, CEI inspection, and survey. We are providing project oversight in all areas, including utility construction/coordination (during latter stages of the project), and re-design. We maintain personal interaction with local residents, businesses, and traveling public on a daily basis. Our team has provided on-site daily interaction with contractor and subcontractors. Our administration team has developed and processed all change orders, and processed all pay requests, plan revisions, and other documentation in an extremely efficient manner. Our team’s comprehensive knowledge of TDOT final records system and requirements enables the project's records to be maintained in an efficient manner. We bring an intrinsic familiarity with TDOT change order procedures and force account documentation. The project has been through delay due to complete utility re-design while maintaining construction activities throughout the project. The addition of a new pedestrian bridge has extended the project timeline.
