Pioneer Trail/Donner Pass Road Roundabout – Truckee, CA

Holdrege & Kull was awarded an On-Call Materials Testing and related Consultant Services Master Contract by the Town of Truckee through a competitive selection process in May 2010.  As part of the on-call master contract, H&K was responsible for providing quality assurance (QA) sampling and materials testing during the construction of the Pioneer Trail / Donner Pass Road Roundabout Trails Project. The project was federally funded by the American Recovery and Rehabilitation Act of 2009 (ARRA) and included construction of pavement for pedestrian trails that circumnavigated the recently constructed roundabouts. The QA testing was performed using American Association of State Highway and Transportation Officials (AASHTO), American Society of Testing and Materials (ASTM) and Caltrans Test Methods in accordance with the Town of Truckee Quality Assurance Program Manual (QAP), and the contract specifications and plans. Caltrans certified H&K personnel performed sampling during the construction of the trails and transported the samples to our materials laboratory for additional testing. Summit Associates (UDBE) provided specialty laboratory testing for this project, meeting the federal funding requirements.
