I-64 Widening | Design Build
This $54 Million project will extend between Interstate 295 interchange (located at mile marker 200) and Bottoms Bridge/Quinton interchange (located at mile marker 205), adding additional capacity by widening the roadway to the median.
In addition to roadway improvements, the existing bridge over Chickahominy River will be widened to the inside. NXL provides comprehensive/independent QA services in accordance with VDOT requirements that cover inspection/documentation of all aspects of the project construction including: oversight of the QC processes, providing daily QA inspections of ongoing work, preparation of the project materials book, and certification of monthly invoices.
For each major activity, the NXL QA team also provides Preparatory Inspection Meetings assuring that all QA, QC, and Contractor personnel are both aware of contract requirements and are in possession of applicable plans and specifications. Also, the NXL QA team provides non-conformance reports (NCR’s) on all nonconforming work – distributed to all appropriate stakeholders: Owner, Contractor, Subcontractors, and Engineer of record. NCR’s are logged and tracked until approved corrections are properly completed.
Similarly, an issue log is kept to track minor items that required correction, but did not rise to the level of an NCR. One key feature on this project is traffic control. The traffic has to keep moving to and from the beach.
