Transportation Design: Intersections

STH 29, Pierce County

KL Engineering was the prime consultant for the reconstruction of the STH 29/STH 65 intersection in the City of River Falls, Wisconsin. KL Engineering completed the PS&E for this Hazard Elimination Safety (HES) project to improve the safety of the intersection.

The project included adding a raised median and turn lanes, including a free flow right turn lane; traffic signal and street lighting design; environmental documentation; traffic control staging; and signing and marking plans. Design challenges included retrofitting the existing roadway in order to maintain traffic during construction and meeting an aggressive 12 month design schedule. Construction of this $450,000 project was completed in 2002.
