RICK was retained by the City of San Diego to provide design and construction support services for the Pacific Beach Pipeline Replacement project. The Pacific Beach Pipeline Replacement project replaced approximately 8.4 miles of 8″ to 30″ water distribution and transmission mains and approximately 2.4 miles of sewer gravity lines and force mains within the Mission Bay Park area and the Midway/Pacific Highway Corridor. The project includes four bridge crossings in the Mission Bay Park area, three (3) railroad crossings via trenchless construction methods, demolition of the existing Pacific Beach Reservoir, the upgrade and relocation of an existing pressure regulating station, road resurfacing, and bringing the existing pedestrian crossings up to current ADA standards.
Additionally, RICK’s services included comprehensive data collection for existing underground utilities, surface improvements, pedestrian facilities, and right-of-way documentation. The aforementioned information was used to prepare feasibility studies and preliminary and final construction documents for the pipeline replacement and all roadways and pedestrian facilities impacted by the project. The project also involved preparation of traffic control plans, construction phasing design, and Caltrans and MTS coordination/permitting.
