-Bridge on Southbound lane of US 401 over Middle Creek north of Fuquay –Varina
This project required the installation of a temporary overhead line on a temporary easement on the northbound side of US 401 . This was necessary because the cranes being used to install the bridge on the southbound lane needed proper clearance and the existing line could not be moved on the southbound side far enough away to obtain the needed clearance for the cranes. Coordination with the NCDOT and AT&T was required for completion of this project.
Dempsey Benton Waterline Project
This project ran from the treatment plant on Highway 50 at Swift Creek to tie with existing facilities on Wilmington St. near the 440 Beltline. There were three contractors for the City of Raleigh. Arcadis handled the engineering and coordination with Arcadis and the contractors was required for relocation of the PEC facilities. In many cases the underground facilities needed to be switched out to de-energize portions of these facilities when the contractors were working nearby. Part of the pipeline went very close to the SBI lab in Garner. Coordination with PEC and the SBI was required to ensure there was no loss of power. Another portion of the work was at Evergreen Packaging on Wilmington St. This company uses large amounts of power and had equipment that was very sensitive to even the smallest of power interruptions. We relocated a 3 Phase feeder to a temporary location and then installed it back to its original location when the pipeline work was complete. Each time the work had to take place during a weekend and coordination with PEC and Evergreen was required to make sure Evergreen’s equipment was not affected. At many locations on this project, coordination with the City’s contactors, AT&T and Time Warner Cable was required when the PEC facilities were being relocated .
- Installation of turn lanes at intersection of Falls of the Neuse Rd. and Millbrook Rd.
On this project, the City of Raleigh was obtaining the easement to relocate the utilities. We prepared the design and the City would contact the appropriate landowners. There was a bit of back and forth coordination but once the easements were obtained, the work was scheduled. There was coordination with customers as well as AT&T and Time Warner.
- Edwards Mill Rd. extension from Trinity Rd to N.C. 54
Part of this project required the relocation of an existing underground transformer in conflict with the new roadway design. This required an outage at an apartment building, and the notification of customers that were affected.
- Widening of Sunnybrook Rd. from Poole Rd. to Falstaff Rd.
The City of Raleigh obtained the necessary easements on this project. This project was plagued with a lot of rock and it slowed everyone down. The main challenge was relocating several 3 Phase underground lines. This required coordination and scheduling of outages that affected businesses as well as an apartment complex. Individual meetings with the customers affected were required to insure that they approved of the times for the outages and were informed of the durations of the outages .
Town of Cary Streetscape Project - Design of Overhead to Underground Conversion
We were responsible for the design of the conversion of the Overhead to Underground facilities. This project involved coordination with Progress Energy, Arcadis personnel, and the Town of Cary. We prepared drawings and an estimate for the conversion of the Overhead to Underground facilities.
