Targeted as a focal point for future business and industrial development in Yakima County, this project provided critical roadway access and extended water and sewer to approximately 200 acres of undeveloped land in Moxee. Key work components included SR 24 widening, a new at-grade rail crossing, roundabout, water main and sewer main extensions, and approximately one mile of new arterial. Communication was critical to project success since the City of Moxee, FHWA, WSDOT, BNSF, CWR, WUTC, SMID, EVSD, TIB, and adjacent property owners were involved.
HLA services included topographic survey, traffic and corridor study, SEPA and NEPA environmental compliance, alignment study and property owner forums, right-of-way plans, and right-of-way acquisition assistance. Coordination included WUTC Petition/Order for new at-grade rail crossing, WSDOT intersection plan, including deviation approvals for new at-grade SR 24 intersection, Pacific Power extension of power network, and piping an open irrigation canal. HLA provided design plans, specifications, bidding, contract assistance, construction observation and administration, audit assistance, and administration of federal and state grants. The project was completed in October 2018 on time and under budget.
