Road and Utility Work

Interstate Engineering worked with SD DENR to secure funding through the State Revolving Funds (SRF) projects funded through the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA) of 2009. Interstate Engineering developed a two-year construction project that allowed the City of Lead to secure ARRA funding over a two-year period for the Upper Addie, May, and South Main Street Road and Utility project.

Interstate Engineering completed the topographic survey for the project in September of 2009. The project consisted of designing eleven blocks of residential streets, sanitary sewer, storm sewer, and watermains. The project had many challenges, including the steep terrain and slopes of the streets, narrow right of way, and unknown utilities.

Interstate Engineering provided the City of Lead with Construction Administration, Construction Observation, Construction Staking, and Materials Testing for the project. Interstate Engineering had staff on hand during construction to assist the contractor with navigating through the unknown conditions of the underground utilities. The City of Lead requested continual construction observation presence to provide quality control and quality assurance on the project.
