Surveyors from HR Green spent time in November looking for 200 manholes in Blanco Texas. The project to survey and inventory the city’s wastewater system is a wastewater asset management project awarded to the city by the Texas Water Development Board.
HR Green was selected to accompany the Amec Foster Wheeler Team for the I-74 Expanded Central Section Construction Management project led by the Iowa DOT along with partnering agency Illinois DOT. This large project includes improvement of the I-74 corridor in the Quad Cities from south of Avenue of the Cities in Moline, Illinois to north of 53rd Street in Davenport, Iowa.
HR Green is providing construction management services for the reconstruction and resurfacing of a 12.2-mile section of I-88 from US 52 to Midway Road in Lee County, Illinois. The accelerated schedule project includes both roadway and bridge rehabilitation including coordination within the corridor with two other adjacent contracts.
