VRX is providing construction management/inspection services for both Phases 1 and 2 of this $24.9 million highway overpass improvement project that has included modifications to the north- and southbound Sam Rayburn Tollway frontage roads and construction of a new overpass and elevated ramps at Grandscape Boulevard and South Colony Boulevard.
The project is significant because it provides a vital connection to a popular 100-acre development anchored by Nebraska Furniture Mart of Texas.
Prior to construction, VRX reviewed the traffic control plans and specifications, identifying more than $100,000 in cost savings for the City of The Colony and ensuring safer operations over active traffic.
VRX inspectors provide inspection of bridge structures, retaining walls, large overhead sign structures, small signs, drainage, utility relocations, traffic signal improvements, street lights, pavement marking, and roadway improvements within TxDOT and city right of way. We also provide daily coordination with the city, contractor, project stakeholders TxDOT and NTTA, as well as utilities and adjacent developments.
VRX has been instrumental in ensuring fabricated materials were inspected. Our traffic control plan recommendations improved safety for the traveling public and helped attain early milestone completion and on-time overall project completion. We manage all materials testing and acceptance; review the contractor’s submittals, RFIs and project correspondence; and review/approve the baseline schedule as well as the monthly updates. We conduct weekly project progress update meetings with all stakeholders and prepare/approve monthly contractor pay estimates.
