Union Valley Parkway Extension December 12th, 2012

Santa Maria, CA – Union Valley Parkway: The City of Santa Maria constructed a new two-lane roadway (UVP Extension) from a point west of Foxwood Lane to Blosser Road and from Foxwood Lane to State Route 135, including improvements to the corresponding intersections at Blosser Road, California Boulevard, Foxwood Lane and State Route 135. The work primarily consisted of grading, paving, drainage, concrete work, utilities, striping and signage. Union Valley Parkway connected to State Route 135 and there was a significant amount of interaction with Caltrans District 5 Permits and Construction staff to coordinate the improvements to both Union Valley Parkway and State Route 135.

Two contractors simultaneously performed this work under separate contracts. Wallace Group provided construction management and administration services for both projects, one of which included federal funding. We used uniform filing systems for both projects consistent with funding requirements and the Caltrans Local Assistance Procedures Manual (LAPM).
