SR 611 / Colorado Avenue - Construction Administration Services

Colorado Avenue

The Lorain County Engineer retained KS Associates to provide Construction Administration services for the Colorado Avenue Reconstruction project (LOR-611-5.66) in Sheffield Village, a $4.4 million project. Our role was to assist the County Engineer in observing the progress and quality of the work.

The project involved reconstructing and widening 2.7 miles of SR 611 / Colorado Avenue to three lanes, from the Sheffield Village west corporation line to SR 301 / Abbe Road. Plans called for adding a left turn lane and improving the intersections at Lake Breeze Road, East River Road and Harris Road. The reconstruction also included installing a section of bikeway that connects into the Lorain County Metro Parks.

KS provided full-time resident project representation at the job site. The role of KS site personnel was to assess the Contractor’s compliance with the plans and specifications. Activities included documenting construction activities; communicating with project stakeholders including Sheffield Village, Lorain County, other government entities and residents; monitoring the Contractor’s schedule; reviewing pay estimates; and overseeing testing subconsultants.

The project was funded in part by the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA), and required additional Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) reporting and inspection compliance.

Construction was performed and completed in 2010.
