In Bayer Becker's transportation engineering group, rule one is to recognize that all projects are unique. Transportation issues develop over time, over decades of changing standards and new development, and each varies from one roadway segment to the next. Bayer Becker keeps that in mind, tailoring planning and engineering solutions to each project. We follow industry accepted standards and requirements, but understand that when exceptions are appropriate and needed, we must be flexible enough to adapt to the requirements and conditions of the specific project.
When IKEA opened their first store in Ohio, they turned to Bayer Becker for their transportation engineering needs. Improvements needed to be made to the existing roadways to handle the additional traffic that IKEA was going to add to the nearby intersections. Muhlhauser Road, an existing five-lane roadway and Allen Road, an existing two-lane roadway would both need to be widened to accommodate turn lanes at various intersections, to mitigate the increase in traffic.
In addition to traffic analysis and roadway design, additional services included the design of a new span wire traffic signal, modifications to an existing mast arm traffic signal, driveway relocation, right-of-way plans, and field surveying.
Throughout the project, Bayer Becker also worked with the adjacent property owners regarding drainage issues and the relocation of their driveways, and with Duke Energy to coordinate the relocation of utility poles as a result of the roadway widening.
