SAI provided inspection services for the City of Winters for the first phase of a revitalization project designed to enhance the downtown district while creating a pedestrian friendly atmosphere. The project consisted of reconstructing the main intersection with clay pavers, adding traffic calming curbs, new sidewalks both concrete and clay pavers including ADA ramps, removal and replacement of AC paving with new signing and striping, the construction of seat walls, new street lights, landscaping, and various site furnishings including pre cast planters, bollards, benches, trash receptacles, and bicycle racks. Incorporated into the work were different colored pavers and sandblasting of the concrete to give the appearance of railroad tracks. The landscaping included a new irrigation service providing irrigation to the seat wall, pre cast planters and surrounding plants, and nine tree wells with the use of structural soil and tree grates. Along with the surface improvements three curb inlets were removed, four inlets were constructed and two fire hydrants were relocated to accommodate the new layout. All work was constructed on an accelerated schedule while maintaining access to the businesses. This highly sensitive project required constant public relations and coordination with area businesses to minimize the construction impacts.
