KL Engineering partnered with CBS Squared to redesign a 4-block urban section of STH 16 (Cass Street) between 4th Street and 8th Street, including a roundabout installation at 7th Street in the City of La Crosse, La Crosse County. KL Engineering completed all traffic related aspects of the project including the signals and decorative lighting plans development, traffic analysis, public involvement, utility coordination, and PS&E submittal.
The traffic signal at 5th Avenue was reconfigured for improved operations and safety based on field reviews and traffic modeling. Proposed traffic signal equipment was designed to match proposed and existing decorative lighting infrastructure along the corridor. An alternatives analysis and recommendation were provided for 7th Street to determine the applicability of a roundabout installation.
Street lights were selected to match the existing decorative fixtures along the corridor. Illumination modeling was preformed, and the lighting was designed to meet IES (Illuminating Engineering Society) standards for similar roadways. The proposed street lighting electrical system was integrated into the existing system to provide a continuously lit corridor and to restore power to locations that were disconnected due to the reconstruction.
Project construction began in June 2018 and was completed in October 2018.
