Butier provided construction management and field inspection services for the Moffett Drive Bridge Construction and Street Improvements Project. The bridge, which spans across Peters Canyon Channel, connects Moffett Drive from Irvine to Tustin, increasing access and street connectivity within the Tustin Legacy development.

The scope of work included the construction of a single span cast-in-place concrete box girder bridge approximately 108′ long x 73.25′ wide. Additional scope items included the following: installation of an architectural steel arch on each side of the bridge; bridge lighting; grading; roadway construction; street and landscape improvements; utility construction; domestic and recycled water; dry utilities; aesthetic treatments; construction of barriers, sidewalks, wing-walls, foundation, and railings; structure excavation; backfill; and drainage.

Butier staff coordinated with several stakeholders, including the Department of the Navy, U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Caltrans, the City of Irvine, Irvine Ranch Water District, Orange County Flood Control District, Southern California Gas Co., and Southern California Edison.

The Tustin Legacy (formerly the MCAS Tustin) is a 1,600-acre urban master-planned community consisting of the following: 2,430 homes; “The District” regional shopping center (1,000,000 sq. ft.); various education facilities; neighborhood parks; and major roadways and related infrastructure.
