20 CEM-512 Value Engineering No. Idea Description AdvantagesDisadvantages 1 Eliminate Ramp A, Use alternate Route Reduces Cost. Simplifies Left Exit. Avoids Long Tunnel under Railroad. Avoids Tunnel behind Sea wall Eliminates Free- Flow Ramp. Eliminates alternate Route if local avenue is congested Alternative Eliminate Ramp A and Make Traffic using Local Avenue to Northbound Interstate C-1 Eliminate Ramp A

22 CEM-512 Value Engineering Item Idea Description BeforeAfterSavingsTradeoff C-1 Eliminate Ramp A (6.5%) Eliminates emergency alternate LCC Savings will be achieved through elimination of tunnel ventilation, lighting and maintenance costs for 2,000 foot long tunnel and the total potential saving is estimated at $ 64.7 Million or 6.5 % of Total Project VE Cost Comparison ($MM): C-1 Eliminate Ramp A Life Cycle Cost:

23 CEM-512 Value Engineering Part II: VE Job Plan (Cont … ) Information Speculation Evaluation Development Implementation

24 CEM-512 Value Engineering 1)Department of Public Works feels that successful highway design must include movement from the west on E-W Interstate to the north on N-S Interstate in order to facilitate commercial activity 2)Because of implementation of another proposal that recommends raising N-S Interstate Profile, more direct and less expensive connection was made C-1 Eliminate Ramp A
