Continental Avenue Preliminary Engineering Study

Client: City of Tallahassee
Location: Tallahassee, FL
Size: 0.25 miles
Service: Transportation & Mobility

Highlights:
Contact Staff: James P. Sullivan, P.E.
 

The project was designated as a Pedestrian and Street Safety (PASS) project by the City of Tallahassee and a study was completed to document the need for multi-modal transportation improvements. The study presented viable improvement alternatives and provided City officials with analyses and data to assist in selection of a conceptual design.

A Preliminary Engineering Report was prepared to document detailed engineering and environmental analyses to identify a preferred improvement strategy that provided the least social, economic and environmental impact.

A significant amount of pedestrian and bicycle activity occurs along this corridor, due primarily to the presence of student and residential housing. The existing roadway consisted of two travel lanes with roadside swales.

An electrical transmission line occupied the roadway corridor with large concrete poles adjacent to the roadway. The rolling terrain was a critical component in design of the proposed improvements and necessitated the extensive use of retaining walls.

The proposed improvements included

  • Reconstruction of the roadway
  • Enclosing ditches
  • Relocating utilities
  • Adding curb and gutter
  • Constructing sidewalks/bike lanes on both sides of the roadway.

Location and design for future Stormwater Management Facilities were included in the Study. The need for additional right of way was evaluated and total project costs were estimated.
