RICK prepared a grant application on behalf of the City of Murrieta, to secure funds from the voter approved Proposition 1B funding. Murrieta was awarded $478,000 for the Murrieta Hot Springs Road project which upgraded the existing fiber interconnect system, installed CCTV’s at six (6) locations, implemented new coordination timing along Murrieta Hot Springs Road, and built the City’s Traffic Management Center, located at the new City Hall.
RICK prepared design plans for the fiber interconnect, CCTV’s, and Traffic Management Center; prepared encroachment permits for Caltrans submittal; prepared specifications for the interconnect and equipment; determined and implemented new coordination timing along timing along the Murrieta Hot Springs Road corridor, provided Project Management during the construction and installation of all items associated with the project; and submitted quarterly reporting to Caltrans throughout the construction of the project following procedures within the Caltrans Local Assistance Procedures Manual (LAPM).
