West Union Street was in poor condition from St. Louis Street to North Main Street. The roadway had been resurfaced several times over the years leading to a variable height concrete curb down to a height of less than 2” in several locations. Sidewalks did not meet handicap accessibility requirements, and many were broken, cracked, shifted, and hazardous to pedestrians.
Resurfacing the roadway improved the safety and comfort to motorists and bicyclists as well as extended the pavement life. Repairs to the concrete curb improve drainage, and the construction of ADA compliant sidewalks provides a safe and enjoyable walking experience for all pedestrians, including the disabled. Oates provided survey and design services and is currently providing construction administration/documentation and testing.
