The W. St. Mary Blvd / St. Landry Street ADA Sidewalk Improvements project is a construction project aimed at upgrading the sidewalk to be ADA compliant on the north side of St. Mary St. from Johnston St. to St. Landry St. and continuing onto St. Landry St. to Brashear St. This project will also include crosswalks, drainage system upgrades, and ADA improvements at the intersections. Overall, the W. St. Mary Blvd / St. Landry Street ADA Sidewalk Improvements project will provide accessibility for people with disabilities, improve safety for pedestrians and motorists, and provide better connectivity to the surrounding areas.
The graphic below provides a conceptual view of the proposed improvements that will be considered for the project.
DRAINAGE AND GREEN INFRASTRUCTURE CONSIDERATIONS
The existing drainage for the project area utilizes a closed (sub-surfaced) drainage system. The existing drainage system will be upgraded at the W. St. Mary Blvd. and Brook Ave. intersection. This upgrade will consist of the addition of drain pipes and catch basins to aid in the collection and transportation of water runoff quickly to the stormwater system which will aid in the prevention of flooding.
Considerations have been identified and must be reviewed and potentially addressed. This includes:
Possible removal of existing trees.
*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 expects to stay in the existing right-of-way although potential construction servitudes may be required for the replacement of driveways to make them ADA compliant for the new sidewalks.
