SPI served as the Program Manager for this METRO Funded $7.5 million mobility and drainage enhancement program for the City of Hedwig Village’s northeast business district. SPI provided management for all phases of the program which included planning, conceptual design, funding acquisition, preliminary design, survey, utility & agency coordination, final roadway and drainage design, and construction management.
The program improvements were constructed in four separate bid packages (referred to as Phases 1-4), with an additional Phase 5 added to the program due to significant cost savings for Phases 1-4.
The Phase 1 project included the reconstruction of Gaylord Drive from Corbindale Road to Brogden Road. Approximately ½ mile of roadway was reconstructed, including 33-foot concrete curb-and-gutter pavement, concrete sidewalks and ramps and new storm sewers. The construction cost for the project was $1.2 million.
Phase 2 included reconstruction of Campbell Road, Corbindale Road and Gaylord between Campbell and Corbindale. This project included replacement of the concrete paving and storm sewers on each street, as well as installation of sidewalks and a reconfiguration of median openings to provide better traffic channelization. Additionally, SPI coordinated with the Texas Department of Transportation to allow the City to install dual 7’X6’ box culverts in place of the large TxDOT-owned drainage ditch median in Campbell Road. This provided for a large median which the City has since extensively landscaped and installed a City of Hedwig Village monument sign. Total construction cost was approximately $840,000.
The Phase 3 project included reconstructing Clifford Road and Corbindale Road between Gaylord Drive and the IH-10 frontage road. The 33-foot concrete curb-and-gutter pavement was reconstructed on Clifford Road, as was the 44-foot concrete pavement on Corbindale, complete with new storm sewers and inlets. An 8-inch sanitary sewer was also replaced on Clifford Road. The construction cost for the project was $426,000.
The Phase 4 project included reconstruction of Brogden Road from Beinhorn Road to Gaylord Drive. This project included converting the roadway from an open-ditch asphalt roadway to a depressed concrete curb-and-gutter section. Over ¼-mile of 28-foot concrete pavement and a 5-foot sidewalk was successfully constructed within a fairly narrow right-of-way. Curb inlets and a large 42-inch storm sewer were designed to replace the insufficient area inlets and small culverts. Total construction cost was approximately $920,000.
An additional Phase 5 was added to the program due to construction and design cost savings through the first four phases. Echo Lane was selected for reconstruction, which included construction of a 24-foot concrete roadway in place of the existing 24-foot asphalt roadway. Existing undersized storm sewers were replaced, and sidewalks were reconstructed. Total construction cost was $1.024 million.
Throughout the planning, design and construction phases, SPI was responsible for coordination with all participating agencies and stakeholders such as Spring Branch Independent School District, The Texas Department of Transportation, the Memorial Villages Water Authority, the Memorial Villages Fire Department, the Hedwig Village Police Department, the private utility companies, and the local businesses and residents.
