Drum Road Upgrade
Helemano Military Reservation to Kahuku Training Area, Hawaii
This project provided for upgrading an existing single lane dirt road approximately 23.4 miles long to a two-lane, hard surface road for use by military personnel and the public for access between the Helemano Military Reservation and the Kahuku Training Area on the island of Oahu, Hawaii. Larsen’s role in the project included analysis of the project to determine applicability of “green” design concepts and compliance with the US Army Corps of Engineers SPiRiT program for sustainable design. Following a field reconnaissance of the site, Larsen conducted a detailed SPiRiT analysis and prepared a report with recommendations. This was followed by a review of the contract plans and specifications to verify incorporation of “green” design parameters into the project.
