Several older sidewalk areas within the City were in need of repair, so City staff decided to address this need and apply for ARRA federal funding as part of the stimulus program in 2009. The City engaged HMH to coordinate the design with the Caltrans Local Assistance Engineer, prepare the E-76 documentation, and produce the necessary construction documents to implement the project. The City identified this sidewalk rehabilitation project as one of their “shelf-ready” projects that could be implemented quickly.
The project was performed on a fast-track schedule, which required close coordination with the Caltrans Local Assistance Engineer, the City’s inspector and the contractor. The project included the removal and replacement of sidewalk, curb and gutter at isolated locations within eleven separate street segments throughout the City of Gilroy. The sidewalk improvements encompassed nine miles of city streets and included ADA upgrades.
