Completed the following tasks for the PMP: initiated and monitored annual pavement distress surveys for asphalt, tar and chip and gravel roads (2,700+ lane-miles of road); made pavement maintenance and rehabilitation recommendations for joint sealing, patching, surface coat, HMA overlay, cold-in-place recycling and full-depth reclamation; designed pavement plans and specifications for 140 lane-miles of roadway/year; developed five year network level budget optimization planning and analysis reports; implemented pavement recycling strategies as part of pavement preservation efforts; evaluated soil analysis to determine additives for pavement recycling design; worked closely with consultants, contractors and suppliers to determine the best pavement design and construction strategies based on cost/benefit analysis; and prepared, evaluated, made recommendations and managed contractual agreements associated with consultant services.
Managed public works capital improvement programs (PCC and Asphalt roadways, concrete curb and gutter, water systems, sanitary and storm sewer) by collecting survey data, designing plans, estimating quantities, writing specifications and expediting project operations. Performed construction inspection services for these projects by utilizing quality assurance and quality control, enforcing city codes, plans and specifications and performing testing procedures (ASTM) for PCC, HMA and soil analysis.

Project responsibilities included collecting survey data, designing facilities, estimating quantities, writing specifications and expediting project operations. Organizing preconstruction meetings and preparing meeting minutes. Monitoring warranty and punch list items. Verifying cut-sheets and as-built plans. Performing QC/QA construction management services for these projects identified by enforcing city codes, plans and specifications (e.g., checking line and grade against plans, close observation of Contractor operations) and performing ASTM testing procedures for PCC, HMA and soil analysis.
