Wood/Patel provided civil engineering for this one-mile multi-use and path public roadway enhancement project. Located in historic Avondale on Central Avenue from Western Avenue to Van Buren Road, the roadway is subject to heavy traffic demands and is favorably thought of for its historic significance, thus proactive communications and design details became very important. Project improvements included traffic signals, bike lanes, landscaped islands, storm drain upgrades and lane reconfigurations for transit drop-off zones. Project stakeholders included schools, churches, local businesses, and residents that currently depend on the public roadway. Wood/Patel engaged with the City’s engineering department investigating the best means to create a new roadway serving the various needs in an urban environment, as well as resolving traffic issues.
