Colonel Jameson Boulevard, Western InterConnector
This $10.1 Million construction project consisted of two hybrid roundabouts and 0.61 miles of divided roadway for connecting the roundabout at State Route 229/N. Main Street to U.S. Route 522/Sperryville Pike. With the support of VDOT, this locally administered construction project required 10 months to complete, including about a month of delays for weather and the delivery of street light system materials.
Designed to reduce traffic congestion at the signalized intersection of N. Main Street and Evans Street, the boulevard included a 10 ft. wide multi-use path, 5 ft. wide pedestrian sidewalk, parkway landscaping and LED street lighting along with a variety of modern safety. Additionally, a new entrance feature with a repositioned masonry wall and interpretive kiosks were constructed on the southwest corner of historic Fairview Cemetery.
This project was constructed concurrently with and tied into a VDOT project on existing Main St. constructing a third roundabout. Additionally, this project included a quadruple box culvert to carry Bald Run, sidewalk, a multiuse trail, overhead signs, lighting, drainage, Filterra Boxes, and mass excavation.
One unique aspect of this project was the traffic control on Sperryville Pike (a busy 2 lane road into culpeper) through the work zone while the roundabouts were being constructed. NXL’s services on this project began in the design phase providing constructability and bid-ability reviews as well as contract time determination. The services continued through the construction phase as NXL provided a construction manager as well as inspectors for the project.
Additionally NXL managed all the project records including, but not limited to, RFI’s, Submittals, Work Orders, Pay Estimates, Source of Materials, Materials Book, C-107s, Workzone Safety Reports, and Daily Work Reports. This project was completed in accordance with all contact documents, one schedule and on budget.
