Flatiron Moves Forward with Pacific Coast Highway Slope Restoration Project
Flatiron is pleased to announce its joint venture with Drill Tech has received notice to proceed from the California Department of Transportation (Caltrans) for preconstruction services on its Ventura County slope restoration project estimated at $53 million. The work area is located along California’s famed Highway 1, inside the Point Mugu State Park, 15 miles north of Malibu.
“We are excited to collaborate with Caltrans District 7 in its first project delivered through the construction manager/ general contractor method,” said Flatiron Vice President and District Manager Ural Yal. “Our preconstruction team is looking forward to providing value to Caltrans by improving constructability and meeting Caltrans’ schedule and budget goals, while respecting the pristine environment where the project is located.”
Project Manager Hunter Bodycott agrees the environment is a top priority while repairing the coastline that has been damaged by past storms and improving its resiliency in the face of projected sea level rise. “The project’s proximity to the ocean and its location within the limits of a state park require a proactive approach to environmental compliance,” said Bodycott.
Preconstruction is currently underway and scheduled to last until late 2021. The project is anticipated to finish in mid-2023.
