Palos Verdes Design Engineering Sample Projects
Via Coronel and Zurita Sanitary Sewer: HR Green prepared Sewer Improvement Plans to extend an 8” vitrified clay pipe (VCP) within Via Coronel and the abandonment and realignment of an existing 8” VCP line off Via Zurtia. The realignment was designed with an 8” vitrified clay jacking pipe (VCJP) installed via directional boring, located within an easement. This project also included a temporary sewer bypass line, replacing sewer manholes, and the reconstruction of an existing manhole. This project required coordination with the property owners and the Los Angeles County Sanitation Districts.
Via Campesina Street Improvements: HR Green prepared Street Improvements and Signing and Striping Plans from Via La Cuesta to Paseo Del Campo. This project included cold milling of existing AC pavement, Asphalt Rubber Hot Mix (ARHM) overlay, construction of 8” AC berm, localized pavement repairs, and localized concrete repairs.
2021-2022 Street Improvement Project: HR Green prepared Street Improvement and Signing and Striping Plans for approximately 2 miles of road along the coast. This project included cold milling of existing AC pavement, Asphalt Rubber Hot Mix (ARHM) overlay, new concrete curb and gutter construction, and localized pavement repairs. This is primarily a residential area; therefore coordination with the local schools was essential.
