The project is part of the overall Regional Transportation Commission Bicycle Pedestrian Plan.  The plan addresses bicycle and pedestrian issues throughout Clark County. The purposes of the Plan are to create safer and more convenient facilities for bicyclists and pedestrians, reduce air pollution, and limit the negative effects of inactivity.  It supports the Valley’s economy and is a sound investment.

GES’ portion of the project consisted of reconstructing and improving the pedestrian and bicycle areas along portions of Garces Avenue.  This included the construction of new sidewalks, curbs, driveways, waterlines and asphalt.

Working closely with Jacobs Engineering, the construction manager for the project, GES provided observation and testing services which included obtaining samples for density proctor; performing periodic in-place density testing services on roadways; curb and sidewalk construction; and periodic observation of rebar and asphalt patches. GES field personnel also performed periodic sampling and testing of concrete in which they collect concrete cylinders and transported them to the GES in-house laboratory for compressive strength testing.
