The Pinhook Road Turn Lanes project, specifically at the intersection of Bendel and Pinhook, aims to improve traffic flow and safety for motorists, cyclists, and pedestrians. The project will include the addition of turn lanes on Pinhook Road to accommodate the high volume of traffic at the intersection, and to improve access to nearby businesses and residences. In addition to roadway improvements, the project will also address drainage issues, as well as the relocation of underground and overhead electrical utilities.
The graphic below provides a conceptual view of the proposed improvements that will be considered for the project.
DRAINAGE AND GREEN INFRASTRUCTURE CONSIDERATIONS
To address drainage issues in the area, the project will involve the removal and replacement of catch basins and manholes. This will help to ensure that the roadway is properly drained, reducing the risk of flooding and other related issues.
Minimal environmental considerations have been identified and must be reviewed and potentially addressed.
*Note that this is not exhaustive of possible future environmental considerations.
A preliminary assessment of the project area is provided for the utilities listed below. Potential utility relocation costs will be included in the project budget if the infrastructure is located within the utility’s own servitude.
RIGHT OF WAY CONSIDERATIONS
The project at hand involves significant right-of-way acquisition and construction servitudes. The right-of-way acquisition process will involve identifying the required areas for the roadway improvement. This will involve a careful analysis of the project plans to determine the amount of land needed to accommodate the new infrastructure.
