Neighborhood Sewer Extension Project

  • Topographic Survey
  • Design
  • Project Engineer

HWA is the engineer for this 3-year City of Bend sewer project to analyze resident’s applications to obtain City sewer service for properties that are currently served with leach fields. The first phase of this project is to provide approximately 1500-feet of gravity sewer in Via Sandia and Cabin Court for 19 residential lots. These construction documents will be combined with another City of Bend sewer project and will be bid out in the winter of 2020 for construction starting in the summer of 2021.

HWA has performed the field topographic survey, completed the design, and prepared bid quantity take offs and cost estimating. The design had to consider the other existing utilities in the area, and how the sewer can be installed while minimizing the impacts to them. On-site utility coordination meetings were held to review the design plans with them. 2020-present.

Location: Redmond, Oregon

Reservoir Drive

  • Surveying
  • Construction Design

This City of Redmond project will be reconstructing approximately 4,500 ft of existing Reservoir Drive from Helmholtz Way east to Cascade Vista to facilitate increased traffic, improve drainage, and pedestrian safety. Approximately 600 feet will be an overlay with the remaining a full reconstruction with curbs, sidewalks, and drainage facilities, built to City major collector standards.

Due to the steep cross slopes and sharp curves of the area, much of the road will be super-elevated. The tie in connections to existing driveways are critical and control the centerline elevation. Installing curbs with the new pavement section requires drainage facilities to be installed. Due to the right-of-way constraints, retaining walls are needed in areas to install a curb tight sidewalk.

As part of the project the City is replacing the old cast iron water main with a new 12” main, with connections to the existing services and side street water mains. 2019-present.

 

Phase 2 ADA Improvement Project

  • Surveying
  • Design
  • Construction Management

In June of 2010, HWA completed the construction plans and specifications for the Downtown District, Downtown Core, and Bus Route & Overly bid packages. These three separate construction contracts were completed in the fall of 2010. HWA provided surveying, design, and construction management services to the City of Bend. In total, the project included the reconstruction of approximately 180 curb ramps. The ADA requirements for location of the new compliant curb ramps and landings required creative solutions for working in and around existing facilities, including walls, fences, utility poles, structures, and pedestrian crosswalk amenities.
