About the project

The primary goal of this project was to improve vehicular and pedestrian facilities which had reached the end of their useful life. The existing roadways were designed to be a typical street section of 28 feet wide with asphalt pavement and concrete curb and gutter. Other improvements included new LED street lights, upgraded storm and sanitary sewer systems, driveway approaches, on-street parking, dumpster pads, and sidewalks with ADA-compliant ramps.  

Four cul-de-sacs on three streets in the neighborhood had raised medians with aging trees. The project removed these medians and trees to allow better access for emergency vehicles. To compensate for the loss of the medians and enhance the neighborhood, decorative, integrally stained concrete pavement features were added to each cul-de-sac.

Engaging the public and providing a well-thought-out phasing plan were priorities from the very beginning. The partnering approach employed by the city, our team, and the contractor allowed most of the project to be completed in one construction season, meeting the anticipated schedule and allocated budget proposed by the city.
