Dunaway worked with Tarrant County and the City of North Richland Hills to design a proposed reinforced concrete pavement section and 4-foot wide concrete sidewalk for Meadow Court. The existing asphalt pavement was in need of replacement and the City selected to use concrete pavement to meet City minimum standards for pavement. Dunaway coordinated with City staff to replace the existing water and sanitary sewer lines prior to the design and construction of the proposed concrete pavement, sidewalks and storm drain inlet modifications in our scope.
With utilities already replaced, we were able to locate those improvements in the parkway and design around them and the newly constructed water services and meters. Dunaway worked provided new sidewalks for the property owners while minimizing disturbance to residents’ landscaping within the parkways. The roadway elevation was set to allow new driveways to be constructed within the City’s right of way and minimize work on private property. Dunaway determined the two existing storm drain inlets onsite could be re-used, which allowed significant cost savings.
The project was designed within the 90-day timeframe required by the County, and the schedule was met allowing the project to be constructed during the more practical spring and summer months. Knowing the County and City’s expectations and criteria made this project design efficient, and working with the County and City for a third year in a row was a notable success for Dunaway.
