Considerable coordination has also been required with Verizon, NOVEC and Dominion Gas due to the need to relocate existing utilities along the road frontage. christopher has also been responsible for working with VDOT, the Prince William County Department of Transportation and the Prince William County Purchasing Office on the construction bid process as we have been responsible for preparing cost estimates, bid packages and obtaining permits for the Route 234 road widening and access road.
