Product Description

Digital Engineering executed a feasibility study for proposed intersection improvements including hydraulic analysis for box culvert installations, as well as traffic counts and analysis for addition of dedicated left and right turn lanes.

DE prepared a VISSIM traffic simulation model to depict existing and proposed conditions and performed all feasibility phase services including traffic counts, layouts, VISSIM model, and cost estimating.

Upon acceptance of the feasibility study, DE prepared plans and specifications and provided construction administration and resident inspection services for the intersection corridor improvements which included the design of a new traffic signal system.

The improvements included a large diameter drainage line installation, construction of dual left turn lanes, construction of dedicated right turn lanes to improve traffic flow, permanent striping, and a new traffic signal system.

Work for this project was performed in accordance with Parish and LADOTD standards.
