Design and Construction Engineering

BLA designed, oversaw the construction and provided public information services for Western Avenue.  The project converted a rural section into an urban section, upgraded the existing 15-inch sanitary sewer to a 21-inch sewer, replaced the existing six-inch cast iron watermain with a new 12-inch ductile iron main, reconstructed the roadway and installed a new storm sewer system.  Because the many challenges on this project were overcome and the residents were so thankful, they threw a barbeque for the construction crew.
