Our team is 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. 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.
The Fayetteville Outer Loop, also known as Interstate 295, is a 22.4-mile bypass. Summit was the prime Construction Engineering and Inspection firm representing NCDOT for this project. Summit supplied experienced, qualified and NCDOT-certified technicians with expertise in roadway and structure construction on an 8.4-mile portion of the loop. Construction materials testing and special inspection duties for this project included encompass grading, drainage, Y-line paving, noise walls, structure construction and contract administration. Summit also staffed an Assistant Resident Engineer to assist with project management. Summit’s staff provided oversight of all construction activities, coordinated technician/contractor inspection operations, monitored project progress and provided final documentation for project acceptance by NCDOT and FHWA.
This was the first Intelligent Transportation System(ITS), Design-Build project in North Carolina. As the prime construction engineering, inspection and quality control firm for the Design-Build team, we provided CEI inspection of the Intellligent Transportation System work on NCTA's Western Wake Freeway and Triangle Expressway. Our scope of work included inspection of the installation of fiber optic cable, microwave vehicle detection systems, closed-circuit television cameras, dynamic message signs and the integration of all ITS communications along the road corridor and directly to the Triangle Regional Management Center, State Emergency Operating Center and NCTA's Customer Service Center.
