Rehabilitation of Howard Street Area N.W. Streetscape of 7th Street NW from N. Street to Florida Avenue, Washington, DC
ATCSCI staff provided construction management services for the $6 million rehabilitation project. The project consisted of resurfacing and streetscape work on 7th Street from “N” Street to Florida Avenue excluding the intersection of 7th Street and “T” Street, for the District of Columbia Department of Transportation (DDOT) in Washington, DC. The Rehabilitation of Howard Theatre Area is part of the great streets program. 7th Street is a major corridor in a highly urban area. This corridor is also an evacuation route for the city as well. The project improvements encompassed:
Repaving road surface and upgrading brick gutters and
Installing granite cobble sidewalk / concrete sidewalk
Reconstruction / Relocation of ADA ramps
Replacing existing single catch basins with standard
double catch basins
Upgrading traffic signals
Relocating fire hydrants
Removing existing parking meters and installing
multi-space pay meters
Our staff provided the overall project management, project controls, office engineering, construction inspection, and community relations services for DDOT on this project. We communicated project progress
to the public, as well as providing assistance to the public in addressing project concerns. We created and implemented a Public Outreach/Information Plan (PIP). We were able to minimize project complaints to almost zero. We provided change management support to develop and track change orders. As part of coordination and partnering, we facilitated regular contractor meetings and regular project progress meetings with all the project stakeholders.
As a result of the ATCSCI Construction Management Staff, the project was completed $800,000 under budget and on schedule.
