The Town of Strathmore required intersection upgrades at George Freeman Trail to accommodate the new Edgeview Road, which would allow for traffic to a new public school adjacent to the site. The changes would allow for a better flow of traffic and pedestrians in the area. However, the project presented many challenges, the largest of which was an extremely aggressive timeline, as the work had to be completed before school started up again in September of 2019.
CVL Engineers Inc. was contracted to provide professional engineering services for the design, construction management, and post-construction review of the intersection. After the award of the original contract, CVL was also awarded the design, construction management, and post-construction for the new Edgeview Road, and for the expansion of George Freeman Trail.
The scope of the services involved the full design of the new 300m long Edgeview Road that accessed the new school site. It also included the addition of turning lanes on George Freeman Trail and the design of a 3-way traffic signal including pedestrian signals & controls. In addition to the road work, CVL Engineering designed 400m of paved mixed-use trail.
CVL worked proactively with the Town of Strathmore and its successful contractors. We addressed all concerns and refined the design as construction proceeded to develop a cost-effective design that hit the scheduled completion date.
