LOCATION: Winston-Salem, NC
OWNER: Winston-Salem Forsyth County Schools
DAVENPORT was retained by Winston-Salem Forsyth County Schools to provide transportation engineering services for proposed pedestrian and traffic improvements along Northwest Boulevard at Wiley Middle School and RJ Reynolds High School. The multi-school campus is located in a highly congested area, and has experienced parking and safety issues. The Reynolds High School site has limited parkin
g within the site for buses, students and employees, leading many students to use parallel parking along both sides of Northwest Boulevard. Students are often crossing the adjacent railroad tracks, or weaving between traffic to access a tunnel leading to the campus. In addition, bus and student drop off for Wiley Middle School are located across Northwest Boulevard from the school, leading many students to cross the busy roadway. Th
is combination of high traffic, along with limited parking and necessary street crossing has created an unsafe corridor littered with potential accidents. DAVENPORT’s scope of work includes on-site investigation, preliminary concept development, conceptual design, roadway design and construction support services.
