Project Role and Scope of Work

IH is serving as the prime consultant for the design of improvements at the intersection of French Street and Paterson Street within the Robert Wood Johnson University Hospital area in the City of New Brunswick, Middlesex County. The scope of work includes the development of contract plans and specifications for improvement of pedestrian safety and ADA compliance and replacement of traffic signals.

Civil / Highway Engineering

The scope of work included Traffic Signal Design, Maintenance and Protection of Traffic (MPT) plans, design of Public Right-of-Way (ROW) Accessibility Guidelines (PROWAG) and Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) compliant ramps, drainage, coordination with NJDOT and local agencies, utility investigations and agreements, drainage calculations and design report, hazardous materials investigation, pavement design report, soil investigation and subsurface exploration report. Significant pedestrian volume is present at this intersection where the existing curb ramps are currently not up to ADA compliance. To improve pedestrian safety, curb bump-outs are proposed as a traffic calming measure and to reduce the distance pedestrians need to walk across the street.

The ramps were designed to current ADA standards while staying within the available Right-of-Way (ROW). A detour was proposed to prevent left and right turns onto Paterson Street to accommodate the construction of the improvements. The project is currently under construction.
