Bayer Becker’s experience with accelerated design schedules was on full display with the roadway improvements to Everybody’s Farm in Mason. The project sits adjacent to a major thoroughfare into the city, so safety was also an issue. Bayer Becker’s familiarity with the city’s regulations and close proximity to the project site allowed for quick response when needed, helping meet the project’s schedule.
The first step in completing the roadway improvements included traffic counts along Tylersville Road and Snider Road and the preparation of a traffic impact study for the development. Based on the results and recommendations of the study, several roadway and signal improvements along both Tylersville and Snider Road were designed. The roadway improvements along Tylersville Road included a 175’ eastbound right turn lane at the site’s proposed access drive and a second 460’ eastbound right turn lane on Tylersville Road at Snider Road. On Snider Road, both a 350’ southbound right turn lane and a 225’ northbound left turn lane at the development’s access drive were designed.
In addition to the roadway improvements, the project also included modifications to the existing traffic signal at the intersection of Tylersville Road and Snider Road including signal head and pedestal relocations. Pavement marking modifications on the southbound approach to the intersection were also necessary. By coordinating the necessary roadway design with Everybody’s Farm’s overall site design, Bayer Becker’s transportation engineering department ensured the overall project stayed on schedule and that all necessary traffic and roadway improvements would be ready for the project’s opening.
