Peterson Road Improvement Project

Peterson Road Improvement Project

peterson-road-improvement-project

The Peterson Road Improvement Project was located in Auberry, Fresno County, Ca. Following the 2020 Creek Fire, damage to the southwestern slopes adjacent to Peterson Road east of Tollhouse Road were sustained.  Furthermore, it is understood the slope had exhibited minor sloughing in the past. However, after recent fires and increased truck traffic, slopes had exhibited more significant movement.  Curbs along the road edge had moved several inches. Additionally, in three locations radial cracking patterns emanating from the slope edge were visible in the asphalt pavement. The slopes below the roadway were approximately 20 to 40 feet high.  Moreover, previous drainage along the roadway appeared to include diverting water to the shoulders and use of culverts. New retaining walls were designed and planned to be supported on shallow foundations or micro-piles.

Repair of the landslides at the site was under a tight schedule to improve the road before the community could start rebuilding following the Creek Fire. Performing geotechnical investigation, laboratory testing, and preparing the report was completed within 10 business days. BSK is proud to have worked on this project.

Alhambra Valley Road Bridge Washout and Emergency Culvert Repair

Alhambra Valley Road Bridge Washout and Emergency Culvert Repair

Under a geotechnical engineering on-call services contract directly with Contra Costa County, BSK investigated this landslide. BSK also provided repair recommendations so the roadway could be restored.

Recommendations included Soldier Pile and lagging, and stitch piers. Recommendations also included landslide removal and slope reconstruction. As part of an on-call construction management contract, BSK provided materials testing services for this project as it proceeded to construction. Furthermore, the project included removal of washed-out culvert debris and headwalls, and the construction of a single span, pre-cast, prestressed voided slab bridge.  Additionally, the bridge was supported on concrete abutments on driven piles, and a new roadway section was placed for the bridge approach.  BSK provided materials testing offsite for precast member fabrication and onsite for earthwork. Moreover,  hot-mix asphalt pavement, and concrete construction elements were provided.

BSK Pays it Forward

BSK pays it forward at the Central California Food Bank

BSK Associates Fresno staff volunteered at the Central California Food Bank Saturday, September 14th, 2019. Our volunteers assisted by preparing for local distribution for our communities; such as building school bags, packing meal boxes, and sorting food donations for 5 local counties.

“Once you start getting into giving back, it’s addictive.” Said Carmen Chacon, Office Administrator at BSK.

Central California Food Bank serves Fresno, Kings, Tulare, Kern, and Madera counties. The work they have done in their fight against hunger is impressive. The program feeds approximately 280,000 people each month. Moreover, the Central California Food Bank has several programs set up to help reach everyone in the community. Some programs include the Mobile Pantry Program, set up to distribute food in rural communities in the area. The Neighborhood Market Program, which sets up a free farmers market type event in disadvantaged areas of the community. Or, the BackPack Program, which supplies local children with a backpack full of food that will last through the weekend.
