La Novia/Valle Roundabout

This $2.6M project completed in March 2017 was the first roundabout constructed in the City of San Juan Capistrano and the first at a freeway interchange in Orange County. The roundabout replaced the existing offset intersection to reduce congestion and enhance traffic safety. It also provided traffic mitigation for several large subdivision projects in the near vicinity. The roundabout involved multi-agencies including the Federal Highway Administration and Caltrans. George Alvarez managed the project and he, in partnership with FHWA and Caltrans, presented the roundabout alternative to the City Council and approved it to move forward with design. The project recently received an award for the APWA Southern California Chapter for Best Design.

On-Call Services

Interwest’s IT Services team assisted the City of San Juan Capistrano by writing an RFP and going out to bid for a new phone system, as the City’s current provider was unable to administer all of the resources that the City required to function and maintain their current phone system. By composing an RFP and going out to bid, the City saved approximately $30K annually; savings which allowed the City to upgrade its backend fiber infrastructure. The key role of our Interwest IT Services team was to help facilitate the RFP, implement, migrate and project manage the new phone system for the City of San Juan Capistrano.
