Working directly adjacent to Scottsdale’s City Hall Complex which includes City Hall, Capital Project Management, Engineering, Development Services, the Main Library and the Center for the Arts, DBA was contracted through our Job Order Contract to build out the multi-use path from the Indian Bend Wash (east of Miller Road) down Second Street to 75th Street where it connects to the downtown complex.
The job order included widening the existing sidewalk from 6′ wide to 12′ wide (creating the multi-use path) to accommodate bicycles, skateboards, Segways and pedestrians. The extension connects the park at Indian Bend Wash with the downtown buildings and the library.
Extensive communication was required to coordinate construction efforts with adjacent homeowners and businesses along the route and traffic control measures were also very important to maintain access and protect the driving public along busy Miller Road. DBA’s scope of work included:
> Demolition of existing pavement and concrete flatwork
> Subgrade preparation
> New A/C paving
> New concrete curb, gutter, driveways, and the multi-use path
> New ADA ramps
> Manhole adjustments
> New catch basins
> Trenching for new electrical conduit
> New masonry retaining wall at the library
> Storm drain connections
> Relocation of control cabinets and traffic signal boxes
> New signage and striping/markings
> New street lights/signal poles/mast arms
> Minor landscaping and placement of decomposed granite
> Replacement of the existing stairs with an ADA-compliant ramp from the street level to the garden level at the City’s park
Multiple areas required special attention and “field fit” minor design services were included to work around existing irrigation piping and traffic signal poles.
