Ardenwood Street Improvement / Park & Ride Facility, Fremont, CA

Alameda County Transportation Commission (ACTC) | 2008-2009


VSCE represented ACCMA and AC Transit on the Ardenwood Street Improvement / Park & Ride construction contract built under Caltrans encroachment permit with Caltrans oversight. VSCE administered the project while AC Transit and Caltrans own part of the property. The project promotes the use of Dumbarton Bridge Corridor transit services by providing necessary parking spaces for transit passengers and improving access to the local shopping mall. The expanded lot consists of an additional 250 parking stalls.


In addition, it included a bus transit facility, bike parking facilities, guard booth, rest room facilities, CCTV system, CMS sign on Route 84, landscaping, and lighting. Construction activities included but were not limited to demolition of existing Golf & Go-Kart facility, new drainage system, electrical and telephone utilities, earthwork, asphalt pavement, parking lot and striping, ADA Ramps, Sidewalk, Pedestrian Crosswalks, prefabricated building, bus shelters, parking lot lighting, traffic loops, and landscaping. VSCE was responsible for full scope construction management and resident engineering in accordance with Caltrans LAPM. Extensive coordination with local shopping mall businesses was maintained throughout construction to minimize the disruption and foster positive public image.


BUDGET CONTROL: This project had multiple owners who initiated their changes and were directed by the Agency. Total change orders issues were 14% of original budget. But changes due to field conditions were only in the amount of $4k. Which was less than 1/2% of the original contract amount.
