Wallace Group is the company of choice for city and county projects from Ventura through Monterey.
The City of Atascadero recently awarded a contract to Wallace Group to design a complete revitalization of the U.S. 101 interchange at Del Rio Road. The project is to handle ongoing and new traffic demands in the area due to the planned construction of a nearby Walmart store. It will include planning and design of three roundabouts, including two at the freeway interchange and another at Del Rio Road and El Camino Real.
Wallace Group is no stranger to solving tricky transportation issues; its engineering, survey and landscape architects were tapped to design and support the construction of the City of Goleta's first roundabout at the Los Carneros and Calle Real intersection. The new single-lane roundabout has been in use since November 2012, improving safety, keeping traffic flowing smoothly and reducing greenhouse gas emissions.
Other projects currently underway include:
Moss Landing - Sewer System Management Plan audit and manhole restoration and/or replacement
Monterey County – various water and wastewater design and engineering
Central Coast government agencies continue to place Wallace Group on their lists of qualified on-call engineering firms approved to work on municipal projects. Agencies include:
