Caltrans District 7 Pavement Rehab Project

Expedited Delivery of PA/ED and PS&E Solutions While Coordinating with Three Other Projects


Caltrans District 7 undertook a $7 million project to rehabilitate pavement on SR-33 and SR-150 in the cities of Ojai, Miramonte and Meiners Oaks. The project also updated guard rails, replaced signs to meet current retroflectivity standards and improved drainage. These improvements required the preparation of the Project Approval and Environmental Documentation (PA/ED) and Plans, Specifications and Estimates (PS&E) that would accommodate peak traffic periods for Ojai as well as three other ongoing projects in the area.


The pavement rehabilitation was originally proposed on a two-lane conventional highway with a total roadway width of only 32 feet, but TRC’s construction staging team successfully shifted both lanes to one side of the roadway, allowing traffic to travel in both directions during construction. To accommodate the historical downtown Ojai business district, construction in the area was staged to overlay one lane at a time, maintaining at least one lane of traffic in each direction at all times. Wherever temporary parking relocations were necessary, construction was proposed to only take place on one side of the street to maintain parking on the street’s opposite side. In addition to the Project Report and PS&E for the pavement rehabilitation and other improvements, we were responsible for preparing the hydraulic/hydrology studies, the right-of-way data sheet, the Transportation Management Plan, the cost estimate, Storm Water Data Report (SWDR) and multiple environmental technical studies.


In close coordination with Caltrans District 7, we successfully delivered this project’s improvements and ensured that all needed ADA upgrades were covered between this and other ongoing project efforts in the area. We provided Hot Mix Asphalt overlay and cold-planned roads featuring existing curbs/gutters prior to implementing the overlay. The project was environmentally cleared under a Categorical Exemption/Categorical Exclusion and the expedited delivery of the project was managed through overlapping the PS&E phase tasks with the final PA/ED phase tasks.
