Quinn has been performing utility relocation inspection services for the Virginia Department of Transportation’s Hampton Roads District for over four years. Working closely with utility contractors, Quinn’s expert inspectors coordinate and inspect the relocation of private and public utilities, such as electricity, gas, and telecommunications. They ensure that utilities are moved safely and in accordance with VDOT’s designed location and that all relocated utility locations are properly documented. In addition, our inspectors monitor daily traffic controls measures to ensure compliance with all VDOT requirements. Team members are also trained in the use of VDOT’s LCAM and VA Traffic web-based applications for coordinating lane closures.
The Quinn inspection team is experienced in utility relocations using directional drilling, open trenching, case boring and overhead line methods. Our inspectors are knowledgeable in interpreting VDOT roadway/cross section plans, utility relocation plans and are able to calculate proposed depths required for relocating the utilities. They perform inspections as outlined in the VDOT construction manual. With a trained eye for construction safety, Quinn inspectors ensure that the contractor is protecting existing utilities and private property.
Our team understands that frequent and ongoing communication is critical to the success of a project. Their strong communications skills and established relationships with utility company representatives has proven valuable in helping to resolve issues between VDOT, the utility companies, contractors, municipalities, property owners, businesses and other stakeholders.
