Poplar Street Roadway Reconstruction
LOCATION: Mascoutah, IL
CLIENT: City of Mascoutah, IL
CONSTRUCTION COST: $418,686
Road engineering design services were provided by TWM using 100% local funds. The City of Mascoutah hired TWM to design the reconstruction of 0.3 miles of Poplar, from 6th Street to 10th Street. The existing high-crown oil and chip roadway was replaced with new HMA pavement, V-gutter, and a 5’ sidewalk along one side. Drainage was particularly difficult due to extremely flat terrain, and shallow drainage outlet points, which TWM addressed through a combination of open ditches, swales and enclosed storm sewers. Other responsibilities included coordination of utilities; public meetings; preparation of plans, specifications, and cost estimates; and preparation of land negotiation documents.
