Passons Grade Separation Project

The Passons Grade Separation project is one of six grade separation projects stemming from the Burlington Northern Santa Fe (BNSF) Triple Track project, which plans to add a third main track between the cities of Fullerton and Commerce. This project was the largest single project undertaken by the City of Pico Rivera. The new underpass allows pedestrians and vehicles quicker and safer access to the northern and southern areas of the community. Harris provided construction management services and assisted the City of Pico Rivera with an extensive community outreach program. Learn more about the project in this video.

Harbor Drive Emergency Repair Project

On March 26, 2012, two 1942-era trunk sewer vaults collapsed, threatening the structural integrity of the aging Las Chollas Creek Bridge. The Harbor Drive emergency project structurally replaced and upgraded the vaults, relined the pipes, stabilized the bridge, eliminated a direct opening to the creek, and added a missing air-jumper system within a raised median. Working in close partnership, the City of San Diego and the project team achieved substantial completion in just three months after discovery. Harris provided engineering and design consulting services on this emergency repair project.  

Santa Rosa Sixth Street Undercrossing Project

The Sixth Street Undercrossing Improvements project created a vital crosstown link for pedestrians, bicyclists, and vehicles. Construction also included the narrowing and re-configuring of lanes near the on- and off-ramps to Highway 101. Harris provided construction management services for the City of Santa Rosa.
