Abbe Road Water Main Replacement Project, City of Elyria - Construction Administration Services

Middle Avenue Sanitary Sewer

The City of Elyria selected KS Associates to provide design, bidding and construction administration and observation services for the Abbe Road Water Main Replacement Project. The purpose of the project was to replace an aging water main that was subject to frequent breaks with a new 12-inch water main. Project limits are from Hilliard Road north along Abbe Road/S.R. 301 to Elyria's City limits.

The water main replacement consisted of approximately 11,178 lineal feet of 12-inch ductile iron water main with more than 100 water service connections and 19 side street connections.

KS’s construction administration responsibilities included attending the pre-construction meeting and monthly construction progress meetings, reviewing shop drawings and submittals, evaluating proposed equipment and/or material substitutions, evaluating the Contractor's requests for change orders, reviewing pay requests and providing the critical communication link between field and Client. A full-time Resident Project Representative / Inspector was assigned to the project to provide appropriate observation and documentation of the construction progress.

KS worked closely with the Contractor and the City to minimize disruption of service to water customers. KS also helped to address residents' and business owners' questions and concerns throughout the duration of construction activities.

Construction commenced in June 2010 and was complete in December 2010.

KS Associates worked closely with the City of Elyria to oversee construction actitivies for the new Abbe Road Water Main installation.
