The redesign of the roadway prism, addition of curb and gutter and installation of a new subdrain system improved the structural integrity of the roadway and eliminated drainage issues. The addition of pedestrian facilities, street lighting and traffic calming resulted in a safer road for all travelers. This project was expanded to include rehabilitation of portions of the Cherry Street and Brookridge Drive storm drain systems.

  • PTS is providing civil engineering, design & construction inspection services for this new arterial connection.

    Raspberry Road Rehabilitation
    Municipality of Anchorage

    PTS provided civil engineering, design and construction inspection services for this new east-west arterial connection from Minnesota Drive to Arctic Boulevard. In addition, the existing road segment from Arctic to C Street was upgraded to meet arterial standards. Subdrains, pedestrian facilities, lighting, and signal upgrades were included in this project.

  • PTS provided civil engineering, design & construction inspection services for this upgrade to urban collector standards.

    100th Avenue Upgrade
    Municipality of Anchorage

    PTS provided civil engineering, design and construction inspection services for the upgrade for this west Anchorage project which upgraded 100th Avenue between Point Resolution Drive and Victor Road, to urban collector standards. Averaging over 8,200 vehicles daily, the design of this one mile stretch of roadway provides for existing and future intermodal traffic volumes. Below grade, the roadway prism was redesigned, and subdrains were installed along with three storm water treatment structures to minimize pollutants draining into Campbell Lake. Above, the integration of traffic calming measures, multi-use pathways and illumination created a safer road for all travelers.

  • PTS provided platting, planning, survey and construction management for this private subdivision.

    Eagle Crossing Subdivision
    Private Land Development

    PTS provided comprehensive development planning, civil design and construction management for much of this multi-phased residential development in Eagle River, Alaska. Tasks included planning, platting, survey, geotechnical consulting, civil design of streets, drainage systems and water and sewer facilities, permitting, construction management and inspection.  The subdivision was platted to accommodate more than 700 home sites.

     

  • PTS provided construction management and inspection services for projects in Girdwood.

    Girdwood  Area Water/Wastewater
    Anchorage Water & Wastewater Utility

    PTS provided construction management and inspection services for 5,500 lineal feet of DIP and HDPE water transmission main, crossing Glacier Creek and connecting existing mains to provide redundancy and improve fire flow in Girdwood, Alaska.  Two other projects managed in conjunction included  the painting and cathodic protection of a 1 million gallon above-ground water reservoir and the replacement and repair of sanitary sewer infrastructure to reduce excess infiltration.

  • PTS provided civil engineering and inspection services so relocate an existing sewer system.

    Government Hill Bluff Sewer Upgrade
    Anchorage Water and Wastewater Utility

    PTS provided civil engineering, design and construction inspection services to upgrade and relocate an existing sewer system through the use of traditional open-cut trench excavation combined with horizontal directional drilling. The project included extensive public involvement to keep residents informed of the design and construction effort and to facilitate relocation of the on-property connections.

  • PTS was contracted by ADOT to monitor the Storm Water Pollution Prevention Plan (SWPPP).

    Seward Highway Reconstruction
    State of Alaska

    PTS was contracted by the State of Alaska Department of Transportation to provide field inspection services for this 6-lane highway project. Our primary task was to ensure project compliance with National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System (NPDES), Alaska Pollutant Discharge Elimination System (APDES), and Central Region Section 641 Erosion Sediment and Pollution Control requirements. Our inspectors worked with both the State of Alaska and the construction contractor to monitor and maintain the Storm Water Pollution Prevention Plan (SWPPP).

  • PTS provided civil engineering and design services to reconstruct streets through MOAs Road Improvement District Program

    Cliffside/Eastridge Drive Road Improvement District
    Municipality of Anchorage

    PTS provided civil engineering and design services for this midtown Anchorage project to upgrade Cliffside Drive and Eastridge Drive. The residents in this area voted for street reconstruction through the Municipality’s Road Improvement District Program (RID). Reconstruction of the roadway prism and installation of a new subdrain system  improved structural integrity of the roadway and eliminated drainage issues. The project also included a prescriptive street lighting design, upgrading high pressure sodium fixtures with LED fixtures, reducing the light pollution to surrounding homes.

  • PTS provided civil engineering, design, project management and inspection services for local street reclamation projects

    Local Street Reclamation Projects
    Municipality of Anchorage

    PTS has provided civil engineering, design, project management and inspection services for several local street reclamation projects sponsored by the State of Alaska and implemented by the Municipality. These projects allow for the cost effective repair to selected streets by recycling the existing asphalt surface, grading and installing new asphalt on top. This process extends the life of the roadway and negates the much higher costs and inconveniences associated with full street reconstruction.

  • PTS used trenchless technology to provide sewer upgrades to repair of aging sanitary sewer facilities.

    Oregon-Wyoming Sewer Upgrade
    Anchorage Water and Wastewater Utility

    PTS provided civil engineering and design services for the repair of aging sanitary sewer facilities within two alleyways in the Spenard area of Anchorage. In order to minimize impacts to adjacent properties within the narrow work zone, the design called for Cured In Place Pipe (CIPP) which is a trenchless technique that does not require the entire sewer line to be excavated. CIPP is a flexible pipe lining system that can be installed from an existing manhole then cured to harden inside the damaged pipe.

  • PTS provided civil engineering and design services for installation of DIP water transmission main

    Knik View Water Intertie
    Anchorage Water and Wastewater Utility

    PTS provided civil engineering, design and inspection services for the installation of 1,700 lineal feet of DIP water transmission main which provided city water to the residents of the Knik View Estates Subdivision in Peter’s Creek, Alaska. The work included demolition of an existing 64,000 gallon above ground single well water reservoir, and the construction of two pressure reducing valves – one above ground and the other below.
