Under the firm’s General Engineering Consultant Contract with the South Jersey Transportation Authority (SJTA), RVE was tasked to provide project management and construction management services for improvements to the Pleasantville Toll Plaza along the Atlantic City Expressway. The project was constructed in two separate phases: first, the rehabilitation of the existing Atlantic City Expressway Pleasantville Toll Plaza to provide Open Road Tolling or Express Lane Tolling and second, installation of an Overhead Elevated Pedestrian Walkway. Phase I of the project entailed the construction of four Express E-ZPass Lanes— two lanes in each direction of the Atlantic City Expressway. Overhead signage was added for ease of directing vehicles into the Express E-ZPass Lanes. Major work items for Phase II included the construction of two new three-level structural towers, fully enclosed, including two elevators and interior/exterior architectural finishes; a pre-engineered steel truss bridge spanning the entire toll plaza with insulated aluminum and glass panels and a curved standing seam metal roof; architectural features connected to the booths and the bridge; new mechanical, electrical and plumbing services; stormwater management system improvements; and installation of new state-of-the-art toll booths. The design consultant’s construction documents were reviewed, and the project schedule and budget were coordinated and monitored. RVE was also responsible for the coordination of the traffic control plan between the Authority, design engineer and contractor. Construction management and inspection services were also provided.
RVE provided on-site resident engineering during all phase of construction. In addition, fabrication experts of the firm were responsible for all off-site and manufacturer product inspections.
RVE was responsible for the coordination of the traffic control plan between the Authority, design engineer and contractor.
All traffic control measures had to be designed and implemented to limit traffic flow and disruption to the existing toll gate facility.
