JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (NNS) -- Naval Facilities Engineering Command (NAVFAC) Southeast awarded a $6.6 million contract Aug. 15 to TMG Services, Inc., a small business out of Cleveland, Ohio, for the Massey Avenue Corridor Improvements at Naval Station (NS) Mayport, Mayport, Fla.

"NAVFAC Southeast continues with its pledge to support small businesses," said Nelson Smith, NAVFAC Southeast deputy for Small Business. "America's 27 million small businesses employ more that 58 percent of the private work force, generate more than 51 percent of the nation's gross domestic product, and are the principal source of new jobs."

The work to be performed provides for construction of a boulevard-style roadway with two lanes each way divided with a turfed median along the Massey Avenue corridor.

"This project award, is once again a tangible demonstration of the strategic value and worldwide relevance of Naval Station Mayport," said NS Mayport Commanding Officer Capt. Douglas Cochrane. "As a practical matter, the improved traffic flow will enable the 2,000 new Sailors who will arrive with the USS Iwo Jima ARG (Amphibious Ready Group), to safely and efficiently transit the installation."

Construction includes turning lanes, curb and gutters and pedestrian sidewalks on the north side of Massey Avenue. It includes realignment of intersecting streets and all required signalization and intersection reconstruction and all incidental related work.

This project also includes improvements at the intersection of Maine Street and Moale Avenue and at the intersection of Baltimore Street and Moale Avenue to improve capacities and safety of these intersections. A roundabout will be constructed at the Baltimore Street and Moale Avenue intersection.

Site preparation includes site clearing, excavation and preparation for construction. Paving and site improvements include a storm water drainage, sidewalks and curbing. Electrical utilities include traffic signals, roadway lights and utility relocations.

The project is expected to be completed by February 2014.
