Dalton Reservoir Project

Dalton Reservoir Project

BSK holds an on-call environmental and geotechnical and materials testing contract with the City of Livermore. Dalton Reservoir Project was one of the task orders. This project replaced an existing 2.0 million-gallon steel water reservoir with a new 3.41 million-gallon steel reservoir on a 5.7-acre site in the northeastern portion of the City of Livermore.

BSK performed soils observation and compaction testing, rebar placement inspection, concrete placement inspection, structural steel welding inspection, and coatings inspection through a subconsultant. Additionally, BSK provided inspection for more than 20,000 linear feet of welds and nearly 1.25 million pounds of steel materials.

BSK strongly believes in giving back to our communities. We make sure our community involvement goals have a positive impact on the communities which we serve; because, it’s all about community.

Marsh Creek Road Bridge

Marsh Creek Road Bridge

Marsh Creek Road Bridge is located in the unincorporated area of east Contra Costa County between Clayton and Brentwood.  This $4.9 million project replaced an existing 29.5 ft. wide by 44.5 ft. long steel girder bridge with a new, wider, two‐stage precast/pre‐stressed wide‐flange California Bulb Tee girder bridge. Additionally, each bridge abutment had either wingwall or retaining walls constructed in each corner of the bridge.

The new bridge has two 12 ft. lanes and two 8 ft. shoulders. Furthermore, several Accelerated Bridge Construction (ABC) techniques were used in an area which had environmental restrictions. In addition, the project area had 6,000 vehicles/day traveling along Marsh Creek Road. Construction was staged in four phases.

This project was primarily funded by Federal Highway Bridge Replacement funding, Local Road funds, and SB‐1 funds. Moreover, the project was designed to Caltrans standards.

This project used high early strength concrete. In addition, concrete accelerants, and soil‐cement backfill with geogrid were used. This project further called for 22 ft temporary soil‐nail shoring walls along with a Soldier pile wall with concrete facing. Further, the project team approved two special concrete mix designs, one with higher cement content and water reducers (Delvo). The second with concrete accelerant BASF MasterSet AC 534, which was pre‐approved through Caltrans. This helped achieve over 4,200 psi concrete in 3 days.

BSK Associates

BSK acted as a subconsultant to Substrate, Inc., and under Hill International’s direction. Moreover, BSK’s role in the project was to support source inspection of six – 88’ 3” long girders at Confab LLC in Lathrop. Additionally we provided Quality Assurance materials testing/special inspection of structural backfill, and aggregate base; as well as, hot mix asphalt and structural concrete construction elements.

This project was an awardee of the American Public Works Association for Project of the Year in 2018. BSK Associates is proud to have been a part of such an amazing project!

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.
