City of Pontiac Martin Luther King Boulevard Reconstruction (4R)

NFE provided the City of Pontiac with preliminary engineering and construction engineering services for the administration of this 1.10-mile road reconstruction project from M-59 to Elm Street. Through this project, a deteriorated and under-capacity three-lane road was reconstructed and widened to five lanes of new concrete pavement. The project also included new storm sewer, concrete sidewalk and non-motorized facility, LED street lights and box-span traffic signals.

NFE provided preliminary engineering services including: preparation of the environmental assessment, including the evaluation of several alternatives for approval by the Michigan Department of Transportation (MDOT) and Federal Highway Administration; preparation of right-of-way plans and administration of the right-of-way acquisition phase; topographic survey; and preparation of roadway construction plans, specifications, special provisions, and plan details in accordance with current MDOT and Federal Highway Administration requirements.

NFE also provided construction engineering services including: contract administration, construction engineering supervision, construction/technical observation (inspection), construction layout and construction staking, on-site quality control and material testing, preparation of pay estimates, preparation and evaluation of punch list work, final inspection, review of documentation for final payment, and recommendation for final acceptance of project in accordance with Michigan Department of Transportation (MDOT) and Federal Highway Administration guidelines and requirements using Field Book and Field Manager software.

Cass Avenue Resurfacing (Woodward Avenue to Dixie Highway)

NFE is prequalified in numerous construction, design and survey categories through MDOT. With these pre-qualifications, NFE has successfully assisted local municipalities with implementing and constructing over 50 MDOT funded projects in the past 10 years. In addition, NFE has provided services directly to MDOT for roadway construction engineering projects. One of the projects was Cass Avenue Resurfacing from Woodward Avenue to Dixie Highway in Pontiac.

Cass Avenue Resurfacing was a 3R project where the existing asphalt pavement was rehabilitated. The overall construction cost was $2,000,000. This project was completed on time and within the established budget for the project despite some very significant changes in existing conditions. The original design intent was to complete patch repairs of existing exposed concrete areas, and complete Detail 7 and Detail 8 HMA repairs in areas where existing HMA overlaid concrete pavement was; however, when milling work was completed, it was discovered that the existing concrete pavement under the HMA was in significantly deteriorated condition. This caused a substantial amount of field re-design for NFE to keep the project within the prescribed funding amount.

Overall the project was successfully completed in 2010. NFE performed all services required for full construction engineering and project closeout procedures as established by MDOT.
