Targeted as a focal point for future business and industrial development in Yakima County with its close proximity to Interstate 82 and BNSF rail, 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 construction. Communication and coordination of parties were critical to the success of this project, including the City of Moxee, FHWA, WSDOT, BNSF, CWR, WUTC, SMID, EVSD, TIB, and all adjacent property owners.
HLA services included topographic survey, traffic and corridor study, SEPA and NEPA environmental compliance, alignment study and property owner forums, right of way plans, right of way acquisition assistance, WUTC Petition/Order for new at-grade rail crossing, WSDOT intersection plan for new at-grade SR 24 intersection including deviation approvals, coordination with Pacific Power in extending the power network, piping irrigation open channel canal, design plans, specifications, bidding, contract assistance, construction observation and administration, audit assistance, and funding administration of federal and state grants. The project was completed in October 2018 on time and under budget.
