GEOServices performed the Construction Engineering and Inspection Services and materials testing services for the pavement and infrastructure rehabilitation for 4.2 miles of a 4-lane divided highway.
The contract required the repair and rehabilitation of numerous drainage systems, including open channel (both paved and unpaved) and storm water piping, in an environmentally sensitive area (the Great Smokey Mountain National Park) adjacent to a pristine waterway. Rehabilitation of an 800 foot long tunnel was also performed.
The pavement rehabilitation consisted of partial depth milling and repaving along the most heavily traveled roadway in the Federal National Park Service system. Paving work was performed while maintaining traffic flow requiring work in close proximity to traffic as well as a very aggressive work schedules. The paving inspection and testing was performed with a three man staff in order to meet the aggressive test result reporting requirements of 4 hours for core density, AC content, and aggregate gradation.
