RVE Wins ACECNJ Distinguished Award for Middlesex County Repair of Beam Guide Rail Attenuators Project

RVE received a Distinguished Award from the American Council of Engineering Companies (ACEC) New Jersey Engineering Excellence Award Program for the Repair of Beam Guide Rail Attenuators for Middlesex County. For this project, RVE provided a single source solution for the design, GIS cartography, GPS surveying, construction management and construction inspection of the repair of beam guide rail attenuators at 91 sites in Middlesex County, New Jersey.

RVE worked diligently to evaluate each site, provide designs to contractor J. Fletcher Creamer & Son, Inc., inspect construction activities and provide updated GIS maps to the County of Middlesex. RVE’s teamwork and internal and external collaboration allowed the project, which spanned several municipalities within the County, to successfully finish ahead of schedule and under budget.

RVE was tasked with taking a list of sites that the County wanted to address and determining an appropriate repair for each site. Work included the repair of guide rail, attenuators, curbing, sidewalk and HMA pavement in addition to topsoiling, seeding, fertilizing and mulching. RVE also coordinated the maintenance and protection of traffic with the local municipalities to facilitate this work.

Damaged guide rails constituted a public safety hazard, making it imperative for repairs to be designed, mapped and constructed in a timely manner. Once all repairs were made, RVE provided updated GIS maps to the County and assisted in updating their asset management system. RVE successfully provided a single source solution for managing various guide rail repairs throughout the County.
