NV5 Wins $7M Contract for Bridge Replacement
HOLLYWOOD, FL NV5 Global, Inc. announces that it has won a $7 million contract to provide Construction Management and Inspection Services for the 5th Street Bridge Replacement Project in Yuba City, California. The bridge replacement is the City's largest and most complex project and is expected to conclude in 2020.
The project includes improvements to the 5th and 2nd Street Bridges and will require the cooperation of Yuba City, the City of Marysville, the California Department of Transportation (Caltrans), and the Counties of Yuba and Sutter. As the prime consultant on the project, NV5's Civil Program Management team will manage the construction of a new 1,800-foot bridge and reconfiguration of the approach roadways, ramps, and intersections adjacent to the structure as well as demolition of the existing 5th Street Bridge.
"This project is a great example of the importance of improvements to our nation's transportation infrastructure prompted by recent federal initiatives," said Dickerson Wright, PE, Chairman and CEO of NV5. "This particular bridge was rated "˜functionally obsolete' by Caltrans under Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) prescribed inspection criteria. We feel optimistic that the ailing condition of our roadways and bridges will continue to demand more support and attention at the federal level to alleviate these issues and keep our communities productive and safe."
NV5 Project Manager Mehrdad Varzandeh, PE, said, "We are excited to begin work for the City to facilitate the widening of the roadways from two to four lanes, providing much needed traffic operations and capacity improvements to the transportation network between Yuba City and Marysville."
