Lumos provided transportation planning and design services to develop and prepare construction documents and an engineer’s estimate for the rehabilitation of 4.84 miles of Shoshone Road, the primary access route, for the South Fork Band. Lumos worked with the South Fork Band to identify road improvements to improve road conditions.The upgrades included reconstruction of the existing asphalt concrete and aggregate base structural section following the existing alignment and profile. The narrow portions of the roadway were widened to a minimum of 22 feet and include vertical and horizontal realignments and improvements for a 35 mph speed for the majority of the road. The project included extending existing culverts and adding energy dissipaters at the outlets; and replacing cattle guards. Shoshone Road passes through some privately owned land surrounded by Tribal Lands. Lumos was responsible for the cost estimate and a schedule for project development; survey and mapping; geotechnical investigation and analysis; environmental assessment; detailed design plans; and the Environmental Assessment and right-of-way dedication to BIA. Lumosalso provided construction management and construction surveyfor the Tribe after completion of the design and bidding services, which included construction management full time inspection, and construction staking. Lumos provided recommendations to the Tribe regarding construction schedules, change orders and construction progress. In addition, the Tribe utilized the Lumos team to help strengthen the Tribes knowledge of the construction process. Lumos worked with the Tribe to facilitate the BIA process to provide a quality finished project this last for years to come. As Shoshone Road is the main access to the Tribe’s facility, local residence and school buses, access through the project at all times was critical. These concerns were expressed by the Tribe during the pre-construction phase and where passed along to the sub-contractor, Road and Highway Builders who made every effort to provide access at all times, even during the paving process. The project was a great success because of the team work and communication that was established early on between the Tribe, Lumos and the contractor.The Bureau of Indian Affairs funded this project from the Indian Reservation Road High Priority Projects Fund (IRRHPP).
