Project Detail

This project, which comprised of a portion Southern East/West Corridor Study performed by MWY in 2001, included the design of a new parkway-type boulevard with four lanes and a landscaped median.

MWY began by performing an Alignment Study to determine exact alignment of the new east/west street, which would connect two existing north/south streets. Challenges in setting horizontal and vertical alignment included mitigating conflicts with existing utilities, including a high-pressure gas line parallel with the street.

Rolling topography was also an issue, and providing somewhat balanced cut/fill calculations for economy while maintaining an aesthetic vertical alignment to reduce the “roller coaster effect” was a challenge.

In addition to performing detailed design of the street and storm drainage structures, MWY also coordinated geotechnical services and traffic signal warrant studies for the two intersections.
