Jackson Civil was contracted by the City of Napavine to scope, design, and administer the reconstruction of Woodard Road. The road had severely deteriorated due to age and poor subgrade conditions. A full depth reclamation (FDR) process with cement treatment was selected as the most cost effective method to rehabilitate the road. FDR pulverizes existing pavement and mixes it into the subgrade along with cement powder. The new subgrade is then hydrated and shaped to the proposed grade. After a curing period the road is paved directly on top of the new subgrade. This process minimizes import and export of materials, recycles existing materials, and reinforces the road base creating a stronger and cost effective alternative to a full reconstruction.
Jackson Civil Engineering worked closely with Vader city staff, and council member Joe Schey to scope and fund the A Street Improvements Project. With funding in place, designing began in mid 2017. The project consisted of reconstructing the roadway, sidewalk, lighting, and stormwater facilities for several city blocks. The project addressed a deteriorated surface, an oversized cross section for existing and forecasted uses, ponding, and inadequate lighting. The project involved the attendance of several public meetings to help staff communicate the need for a reduced roadway cross section to a concerned public.
Jackson Civil Engineering currently serves as the City of North Bonneville’s on-call City Engineer. Part of this role includes worked closely with city staff to scope, fund, design, and administer Phase II of the Evergreen & Cascade Drive TIB SCAP project. Our engineers verified scoping assumptions using geotechnical investigation to determine the best methodology to address the failing roadway surface. After deliberation, it was decided that a full depth reclamation process needed to take place. The process pulverized the existing surface and mixed it, along with cement powder, into the existing base rock. The resulting subgrade provided a stronger base for the new pavement and saves project costs by not requiring the haul out of the failed roadway materials. The new surface was graded to improve the shedding of stormwater from the traveled lanes.
Jackson Civil Engineering has served as the Yacolt Town Engineer since February of 2016. This relationship started with grant writing where our team was brought in to seek funding for an intersection rebuild project the city had been unable to finance for several years. The grant scope and estimate were revised, submitted, and ultimately funded for the original project plus additional chip sealing work in the project vicinity. Since then, Jackson Civil Engineering has successfully designed and administered multiple TIB funded transportation projects. We have also actively worked with Yacolt to source federal funding for street improvements.
Halsey Commons is a small site plan proposing a mixed use building in the heart of Fairview, Oregon and adjacent to one of the primary east-west thoroughfares. Jackson Civil Engineering completed the pre-application, land use, and final civil phases of the project. A unique challenge was dealing with multiple jurisdictions for different aspects of the project. The site itself is subject to the City of Fairview standards, however the frontage and street itself are governed by Multnomah County. Having multiple governing entities always brings unique communication and coordination challenges. The project team excelled at clear communication and the project is broke ground in late 2019.
Halsey crossings is a large-scale site plan proposing a 94-unit apartment complex. Jackson Civil Engineering assisted in coordination, site design, grading, utilities, and stormwater facilities for the pre-application and land use portions of the project. The project is directly adjacent to Fairview Creek, requiring unique erosion control, stormwater, and floodplain requirements. Additionally, Jackson Civil Engineering assisted with corrections to the original 1200c permit that was obtained during the mass grading phase of the project.
As City Engineer, Jackson Civil worked with staff and a local developer to design and administer a sewer main extension to serve a group of commercial properties. The sewer main posed several challenges. There was a lack of documentation for the area, the sewer line needed to be placed at a depth of 20’, and several utilities posed issues. Additionally, there was a set deadline to get it installed prior to an awarded roadway improvements project restoring the existing road. To maximize efficiency, our team performed outreach with city staff to identify properties that may need services within a 5 year time frame. The project was completed without interference to the roadway project and minimized the chance of utility cuts into a new roadway surface. This project exemplifies Jackson Civil’s proactive approach towards project management.
