Pinewood Springs Road & Bridge

Pinewood Springs, CO

Benesch provided construction management services to repair three bridges in the community of Pinewood Springs that were damaged in the floods of 2013. Along with the bridges being damaged, the adjacent roadway and Little Thompson River channel were severely damaged. This project involved re-establishing and armoring the bank of the Little Thompson. Benesch provided design and construction management for the County on these FEMA and federally funded projects, including certified payroll review and EEO wage interviews. Several issues were encountered during construction including high water, shallower than anticipated bedrock, and phasing changes. Benesch, the County, and the contractor worked together to develop solutions resulting in a successful project.

Construction activities directly cut off access to many of the homes. Benesch provided public outreach and coordination with the residents, resulting in a successful project. Benesch provided construction management and full-time inspection. The project involved project management, topographic survey, hydraulic and hydrologic analysis, geotechnical exploration, roadway design, general site improvements, construction management, and construction inspection.
