PTP oversaw all aspects of this project from bid and contract execution to contract completion.

Project Description

PTP Transportation was retained by Titus County to oversee the delivery of $166 million in road improvement projects from contract execution to completion of construction. Planned as the anchor segment of a loop around the City of Mt. Pleasant, the US 271 rigid pavement highway project includes four lanes of an ultimate six lane urban section with six grade separated interchanges. This project is being constructed to TxDOT specifications and standards with oversight by Federal Highway Administration and has passed all state and federal audits. PTP provided oversight of the drafting of all three EAs and the drafting of the Finding of No Significant Impact for FHWA consideration. Changes in project design requested by TxDOT and enlargement of wetland by a landowner prior to right-of-way acquisition for US 271 required PTP to re-delineate wetlands and impacts, and submit an amended Pre-Construction Notification and mitigation plan for a Nationwide Permit. To allow the projects to proceed, migratory bird nest surveys were conducted for all three projects during clearing and construction, with nesting trees protected until birds relocated.
