As a Prime Consultant, Athalye oversaw the construction management, inspection, material testing, and construction staking for the I-10 Westbound Widening Project in Yucaipa and Redlands. Major project features included CIDH piling (wet construction methods), retaining wall construction, pavement widening, local street improvements, grading, drainage modifications, signing and striping and traffic handling.

The addition of a general purpose lane to the westbound section of I-10 between Live Oak Canyon Road in Yucaipa and Ford Street in Redlands improved traffic operation and circulation one mixed-flow lane on the I-10 from Live Oak Canyon Boulevard to Ford Street.. An extensive cut-back of the hillside north of the freeway was required in order to add this lane and ensure proper motorist sight distances, between Yucaipa Boulevard and Wabash Avenue. Temporary construction easements were needed but no permanent right-of-way acquisition was required.
