Faculty Mentor Name

Abstract/Artist Statement

With the growing population of Stockton, California the roadways are becoming too small to carry the amount of traffic needing to travel. DKPS Engineers have proposed to help with this issue by widening Thornton Road from Eight Mile Road to Devries Road. The project will include a geotechnical report, traffic study, and plans for grading, drainage, underground utilities, beautification and a pump station design for sanitary sewer. This team however will not be designing any structural aspect of the pump station, the traffic control plan nor the development surrounding the project site. The project will be done according to City of Stockton Stan!;lards and Specifications. This road widening is in the city's master plan for 2035. Our mentor and main contact is an employee of the City of Stockton. Any city standard or design question he is able to answer in order to provide the most accurate information. Other consulting firms were also contacted including BKF Engineers in Pleasanton, CA and Fehr and Peers in Walnut Creek, CA. Currently farmland surrounds the roadway, but there is a development in the master plan to be built by 2035. Each of the water and sanitary sewer lines has to be sized according to the future development's needs using the City of Stockton's Master Water Plan. The presentation will include Power Point slides of pictures, processes and conclusions. A set of plans will be available to display along with a full aerial printout of the roadway.
