proHNS provided a full team of experienced Project Engineers, Office Engineers, and Engineering Technicians to provide contract administration and inspection services for this high-profile, logistically challenging road improvement project in downtown Juneau. The two-season project repaved the roadway, improved pedestrian and bicycle facilities, and repaired the Merchant’s Wharf retaining wall, all while maintaining access throughout the busy downtown corridor.
Impacts to the traveling public, downtown businesses, and the tourism industry were successfully mitigated by the DOT&PF/proHNS team through close coordination with the Contractor (Secon) and our partnership with specialty subcontractors McDowell Group (public outreach and stakeholder coordination) and Kinney Engineering (traffic engineering). Through the co-development of detailed Traffic Control Plans (more than five dozen) and a barrage of public/stakeholder outreach (social media campaigns, custom signage, user group-focused coordination meetings, flyers, and door-to-door introductions), proHNS helped lead one of the more successfully coordinated high-impact public projects in recent memory with little to no objection from the public.
The project earned the 2020 Outstanding Project of the Year Award from the American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE) Alaska Section – Juneau Branch.
