Construction Admin

As a part of the Stormwater On-call contract that McAdams has with the City of Durham, McAdams was called upon to complete the design, permitting and construction administration of an expedited culvert replacement project on Buckingham Road, on a tributary of Third Fork Creek. The culvert was overwhelmed by the remnants of Hurricane Florence and failed, exposing a City waterline and threatening an existing sanitary sewer line in the road embankment. The culvert and road were significantly damaged. McAdams was called to prepare an expedited design for the replacement, and to follow through construction to oversee the process for the City. McAdams has completed site surveys and is currently finalizing the culvert sizing process to meet intended City Level of Service for this roadway crossing. A No-Rise analysis will also be prepared for the proposed culvert since this crossing is located along a FEMA regulated stream. Construction documents are estimated to be ready for bidding by early March 2019.
