- Lakeshore Drive Construction Engineering & Inspection
Serving as an extension of TxDOT’s staff, we provided construction engineering and inspection (CEI) services for the Lakeshore Drive bridge widening and U-turn bridge construction project. The project is along Lakeshore Drive between U.S. 180 and I-20 Frontage Road south of IH 20. The project limits begin at and include the intersection of Lakeshore Drive and U.S. 180.
The project required coordination with multiple entities, including TxDOT, the City of Hudson Oaks, utility companies and abutting properties and businesses, with the team providing frequent and regular updates on project progress. This effort included advanced coordination with TxDOT and the City of Hudson Oaks due to numerous traffic phase switches, lane restrictions and freeway closures required for construction. It also required extensive monitoring of traffic control due to proximity of the work area to the traveling public.
We were also responsible for coordinating all materials testing on the project and documenting the contractor’s daily activities, material, labor and equipment usage, entering this data into TxDOT’s Site Manager system for record-keeping purposes. In addition, the team performed monthly labor interviews on contractor and subcontractor personnel, verified contractor and subcontractor certified payrolls, reviewed submittals and invoices for material used, prepared change orders for work as required, and generated monthly contractor estimates for payment.
