This project included design-bid-build construction services for a new base entrance road for Camp Geiger and improvements to the entrance road at Marine Corps Air Station (MCAS) New River. The objective of this project was to provide for better road alignment, improved traffic flow, pedestrian safety and a distinct entrance to Camp Geiger. As a second tier sub-consultant DAVENPORT provided transportation engineering services for this project including planning, analysis, and design services.
To better inform stakeholders in their determination of appropriate changes to the Camp Geiger/ MCAS Complex roadway network, an array of roadway and access improvement alternatives were evaluated in a Design Charrette process. By identifying more conducive traffic modifications, the team was able to recommend changes that would accommodate the impacts of roadway, and access changes with analysis of forecasted future traffic volumes and follow up with further transportation design services. DAVENPORT’s efforts in planning and analysis included traffic data collection, transportation analysis, modeling and meeting/design charrette participation.
DAVENPORT also provided signal design services for a new signalized intersection at Curtis Road and Church Street Extension including steel poles with mast arms, metal pole loading diagrams, design of a pedestrian activated flasher (RRFB-Rectangular Rapid Flashing Beacon) at the intersection of Curtis Road and A Street, development of signal quantities and cost estimates, and preparation of traffic signal technical specifications.
A detailed Transportation Management Plan (TMP) was developed to maintain traffic through the roadway improvement project during construction including quantities, cost estimates and technical specifications. The included construction phasing and traffic control design was instilled to maintain traffic flow on New River Air Station and Camp Geiger including areas of construction related to Curtis Road widening, Church Street Extension, Campbell Street Extension, closure and conversion of A-Street to a greenway trail, and widening, demolition and tie-ins along Church Street.
