Superior Avenue Pavement Rehabilitation
Costa Mesa, CA
Client: City of Costa Mesa
As part of a Citywide street rehabilitation project, Civil Works Engineers was hired by the City of
Costa Mesa to prepare construction documents for the pavement rehabilitation of Superior Avenue
from the southerly City limits to Anaheim Avenue, approximately 2,600 feet. Superior Avenue is a
two-lane arterial street with a center turning lane located in a busy commercial area.
The project involved both pavement overlay and complete reconstruction. We prepared a field survey,
geotechnical investigation, pavement reconstruction plans, curb ramp reconstruction details,
specifications and estimates, and traffic engineering.
Due to numerous access driveways and side streets, traffic handling during construction was a major
issue. Portions of the work were completed at night and weekend to minimize traffic impacts.
As the project was federally funded, we also prepared the paperwork required by the Caltrans Local
Assistance Procedures Manual. This included the Preliminary Environmental Study, the Request for
Authorization for Construction, the Roadway Data Form, the PS&E Certification Form, the R/W
Certification Form, the Finance Letter, and the Construction Form.
