Final Design - Value Engineering

A VE Study was conducted for this project and resulted in 6 recommendations to reduce construction cost. They include:

  • 1. Eliminate bus pullout. The City will coordinate with Transit to determine if the
    bus pullout can be eliminated (buses would remain in travel lane at bus stops
    negating the need to re-enter traffic flow). Possible location for additional on-street
    parking. with the bus company to determine if the bus pullout can be eliminated.
  • 2. Modify the lane transition and relocate mid block crossing to improve safety.
  • 3. Reduce roundabout truck apron width and replace pavers with stamped concrete.
  • 4. Optimize retaining wall and guardrail design.
  • 5. Review profile and revise where possible to reduce amount of fill.
  • 6. Optimize curb ramp design.
