- Chisholm Trail Parkway - Section 5
Chisholm Trail Parkway (CTP) is a limited-access toll road in southwest Tarrant County extending from Fort Worth’s central business district through southwest Fort Worth, continuing south to Cleburne and providing a north-south alternate route for I-35W. Serving as an extension of the North Texas Tollway Authority (NTTA) staff, our team created a 50/50 joint venture with VRX Inc. (a D/M/WBE firm), Southwest Mobility Partners.
This partnership provided construction management services for the Section 5 portion of Chisholm Trail Parkway (CTP5), including inspection of all elements of highway and roadway construction. The work required close coordination with jurisdictional authorities, railroads, utility companies and adjacent property owners. The scope of the CM services was the reconstruction of City of Fort Worth Streets (Sycamore School Road and McPherson Boulevard) and the installation of new City of Fort Worth traffic signals (Sycamore School Road).
CTP5, which extends south from Dirks Road/Altamesa Boulevard in Fort Worth to FM 1187, consists of approximately 5.8 miles of new four-lane tollway and includes more than 23 lane-miles of continuously reinforced concrete pavement (CRCP). This section included the construction of cross-streets and overpass bridges, slip ramps and main lane pavement, signing and pavement markings, illumination and traffic signals, main lane and ramp toll gantries, and installation of all-electronic toll collection equipment and intelligent transportation systems (ITS).
We coordinated all materials testing and documented the contractor’s daily activities, material, labor and equipment usage, entering this data into NTTA’s Enterprise Project Delivery System. The team also performed monthly labor interviews on contractor and subcontractor personnel, verified contractor and subcontractor certified payrolls, reviewed submittals and invoices, reviewed and responded to requests for information, prepared change orders, and generated monthly contractor estimates for payment.
