KS Associates served as Prime Consultant, providing design and inspection services for 14 bridges over I-80/I-90 in Fulton and Lucas Counties. The project was executed in two phases:
Phase 1 called for performing site inspections and load rating analyses to determine each bridge’s capacity and ability to meet current and future travel demands; identifying needs for structural maintenance and repair; developing recommendations for structural improvements; and providing design services for approved recommendations.
Phase 2 called for construction administration and construction inspection services. Work involved monitoring daily construction activity to confirm adherence to plans and specifications; tracking quantities of daily work performed to ensure the accuracy of invoices submitted by the contractor; coordinating Maintenance of Traffic and lane closures to minimize traffic delays and enhance safety; and performing punch list inspections of each bridge as work was completed.
KS identified cost-effective maintenance and repair alternatives, minimized traffic disruption and helped the Commission to provide a safe and efficient travel experience for Ohio Turnpike customers.
