Awards & Recognition

The project included ADA upgrades to the sidewalk ramps, replacement of unsuitable sections of roadway, and pavement overlay of approximately 1,300 feet of road. In addition to the overlay project, Belsby designed reconstruction of 3rd and Ash Streets including water main replacement.

In addition to these projects, Belsby has secured $571,000 in TIB funding to reconstruct the failing portion of Main Street.
A value engineering study was performed by Belsby Engineering and modern concrete rubblization and cement treated soils (CTS) were determined to be the most cost effective solution for subgrade construction. The estimated cost savings from rubblization and CTS as opposed to conventional construction methods was approximately $150,000. This significantly benefited the client with a superior product at a reduced cost.
