B&N led the Northwest Boulevard corridor curb repair and storm sewer design efforts as part of the City of Upper Arlington’s yearly pavement restoration efforts. This road is a busy, four-lane minor arterial within the heart of Upper Arlington was experiencing curb deterioration. The design efforts for this corridor included assessing American Disabilities Act (ADA) compliance, creating a GIS referenced data inventory for Upper Arlington of the existing facilities in the corridor and identifying the non-compliant facilities to reduce the scope costs. B&N coordinated the new ADA-compliant facilities closely with new signal equipment at major intersections to avoid impacting the new pushbutton facilities and save construction dollars.
A major concern in the corridor was the inadequate sewer system. To address capacity issues and set the stage for an upcoming phase of work, the B&N team inspected, assessed and analyzed the sewer to determine improvements along the Phase I corridor and within the upcoming phase. Using the sewer inspection and assessment, B&N identified portions of the existing sewer that remained in good repair or required minor point repairs and incorporated them into the analysis to reduce the overall construction costs.
