Caltrans District 7
100 S. Main Street, Suite, 100
Los Angeles, CA 90012
Utility Coordinator/Project Manager; While at CH2M HILL, Mr. Phillips was the Project Manager in charge of this project. He managed an internal staff as well as the duties of two subconsultants. Primary responsibilities were to coordinate activities on the project with Caltrans District 7 Utility Staff, Utility Agencies, the Positive Identification Team, and the Design Team. As Utility Coordinator, Mr. Phillips attended all meetings relevant to the project with Caltrans and the Utility Agencies.
Our staff conducted initial corridor limits to within 200 feet of either side of the freeway. We then identified all potential utilities in the area as recorded by Dig-alert, sent out letters to each agency requesting most recent plans relevant to their facilities. The Design team lead by Mr. Phillips digitized all of this data into CAD files compatible with Caltrans Plans Preparation Manual. Follow-up and continued coordination with Caltrans and the Utility Agencies was maintained throughout the term of the project to ensure that all possible data was collected on potentially impacted facilities. Field surveys were conducted to further verify our accuracy on each utility.
Facilities that were identified as being a conflict were potholed and identified for relocation. Final results of our effort included a Pothole matrix, Utility Conflict Matrix, and Microstation CAD files.
Utility Base mapping was conducted along Interstate 5, Interstate 710 and Interstate 405 totaling approximately 20 miles of roadway improvements in the County. The project was then handed off to Caltrans for further study and refinement.
