Our team was selected by NCDOT as the prime consultant for the Monroe Expressway connection from US 74 near I-485 in Mecklenberg County to US 74 between Wingate and Marshville in Union County. Summit is providing NCDOT CEI, structures inspections and materials sampling and testing. For this project, Summit staffed one Resident Engineer, three assistant Resident Engineers and 34 technicians between our own and our sub-consultant’s employees. Summit also assisted with all testing and inspection for toll operations to begin once the road opened. Summit inspected all aspects for 7 ORT facilities and gantries for toll collections.
We are the lead CEI firm for the 16-mile US 17 widening project from South of Belgrade to the US 17 New Bern Bypass in Division 2. Summit is staffing a Project Manager and 12 CEI technicians, which includes lead Tech IV inspectors over roadway and structures. The $143M project consists of over 4.8 million yards of borrow, 300,000 tons of asphalt, numerous utility relocations, 25 bridges and one culvert. This includes two dual 1,200-foot structures over the White Oak and Trent Rivers. Summit and Gannett Fleming are also collaborating on the Maysville Bypass as well. Our engineers and technicians were hand-selected for this project based off of their proven team cohesion on a previous project. We were able to build around our strengths and weaknesses to form a team specifically suited for the Maysville Bypass. Our team members’ familiarity with each other allows them to assist each other more efficiently, and tackle tough project issues effectively.
Our survey verification team is acting as the NCDOT Survey party on the NC87 Bridge Replacement project for construction layout services in NCDOT Division 7. The project consists of a detour with two temporary bridges, then demo and replacement of the existing two bridges. Summit is doing all construction layouts for the project including bridge layouts, slope staking, fine grading, and utility layouts.
