This past year was unlike any other, and our team is grateful to have made progress on many projects throughout 2020. Thanks to our G3 team and dedicated client partnerships, we were able to offer service of the highest quality and with a sense of urgency during these unprecedented times, continuing our ability to positively impact the communities we serve.
To wrap up 2020, we’re looking back at some of our biggest projects this year:
1-10 SBCTA Express Lanes Project
I-10 Express Lanes project holds a crucial role in handling the expected growth within San Bernardino in the next 25 years, with G3 Quality as an integral part of the design-build quality management team. The project will widen the existing I-10 freeway between the Los Angeles/San Bernardino County line and I-15. Major construction on the project began in Spring 2020, with an expected completion date of Spring 2023. As construction continues into the new year, crews are currently working throughout the ten-mile corridor on demolition and reconstruction of retaining walls and sound walls, tree removal, utility relocation, and several bridges.

I-5 Corridor Improvement Projects
I-5 in California is a vital north/south artery for the traveling public. As an integral part of the quality management team, G3 Quality is providing quality materials control, inspection, and testing services on the South Corridor Improvement Projects since construction began almost ten years ago. This includes the areas of Buena Park, Cerritos, Norwalk, La Mirada, and Santa Fe Springs in both LA and Orange County. With the Florence Avenue Interchange Project near completion in early 2021 and Valley View Avenue scheduled to finish in mid-2022, the I-5 South Corridor will soon be complete!
I-15 Express Lanes Project
Riverside County Transportation Commission, or RCTC, in partnership with Caltrans and the Federal Highway Administration, is investing over $470 million to improve I-15. G3 Quality is an integral part of the quality management team providing quality materials control, inspection, and testing. Crews made great progress on this project in 2020, with an expected completion date of Spring 2021!

Redlands Passenger Rail Project (The Arrow)
The SBCTA Arrow Project works to provide a safe, reliable, and cost-effective travel alternative for local and regional communities including San Bernardino, Loma Linda, and Redlands. G3 Quality is providing quality management, inspection, and materials testing services on this contract. This year, crews made great progress on this new 9-mile Arrow corridor, with construction at more than 70% complete and bridge construction at almost 100% complete!

G3’s Redlands Lab Gains AASHTO Accreditation
In 2019, we announced the opening of our office in Redlands, CA. This new location also includes a new Caltrans-accredited laboratory. In 2020, the laboratory proved its further commitment to quality by becoming AASHTO-accredited! The AASHTO Accreditation Program (AAP) formally recognizes the competency of thousands of testing laboratories to perform specific tests on construction materials. In addition to being the largest accrediting body in the construction materials industry, the AAP is also the most widely accepted. With the global COVID-19 pandemic impacting all operations, G3 partnered with AASHTO Resource to successfully complete a fully virtual remote laboratory assessment.
