Featured Project


Pleasant Valley Subdivision Road and Drainage Improvements, Phase 1A

Client: Municipality of Anchorage, Project Management and Engineering Department

PTS provided design assistance, project management and inspection services for upgrades to ~2,800 lf of residential streets in the Pleasant Valley Subdivision, east of Muldoon Road between 32nd and 36th Avenues. Improvements included new pavement, curb and gutter, storm drainage, Americans With Disabilities Act (ADA) compliant pedestrian facilities, lighting, and landscaping. Implementation of this project was challenging due to fully developed, medium density housing, closely spaced driveways, narrow rights of way, and underlying organic soils. Balancing MOA’s urban design standards and ADA compliance requirements with existing parking and access configurations was accomplished through PTS coordination with MOA staff and residents, alike.  PTS worked closely with the General Contractor to manage construction sequencing and traffic control to minimize inconvenience to residents.  Surcharging of existing organic soils was done via construction phasing and weekly monitoring to ensure no ground settlement prior to installing concrete facilities and final road surfacing.  PTS coordinated significant easement acquisitions to accommodate construction impacts. This project was the first of several phases that will be implemented based on availability of funding.
