Hamill Road is an important thoroughfare in Chattanooga that required capacity and traffic improvements but had limited right of way. Volkert provided an innovative center-turn-lane design to provide a safer and more efficient roadway within the available space.
Hamill Road was widened from a two-lane facility to a two-lane facility with a two-way left turn lane. Numerous intersection improvements along the route were also part of the project. The project also incorporated new pedestrian facilities along the route.
The project required the analysis of various alternative designs and alignment for the roadway. Volkert worked closely with the City of Chattanooga Public Works Department staff to refine the designs and alignments to create a preferred alternative.
Volkert’s services consisted of preparation of plans and details for roadway and streetscape design, including: layout of curb and gutter, drainage design, traffic signal design, signing and pavement marking plans, erosion control plans, SWPPP preparation, right-of-way documents including plats and deed documents and concrete sidewalks with handicap ramps
Volkert also provided professional services associated with solicitation of bids, construction services, and preparation of record drawings. The project was split into four phases for construction funding.
