From R to L: URS Intern Kelli McCurdy and SFPUC Intern Marisa Williams
talk to Elizabeth Gruenstein and Vir McCoy, Specialty Environmental Monitors,
about the challenges of working near Agua Fria Creek.The interns are seen
touring Agua Fria creek near Crawford Street, on the opposite side of I-680
from the project’s current construction.
Not only are the students working together with engineers and the contractor to seismically upgrade a pipeline, but they are learning about the challenges associated with the busy I-680 commuter interchange and environmental mitigation efforts at a nearby creek.
SFPUC Engineering Management Bureau Student Design Trainee Marisa Williams is excited for the hands-on nature of the internship.
“My favorite part has been to see all the drawings and then to be able get out and see the actual site,” says Williams, a Civil Engineering student going into her fourth year at San Jose State University.
