United receives Honor Award for Engineering Excellence on the Heavy Haul Route project!

On Thursday, April 27th, United received an Honor Award for Engineering Excellence on the Heavy Haul Route project from the Ports of Indiana to River Ridge in Clark County Indiana.

The project was a joint effort with stakeholders INDOT, Clark County, the Ports of Indiana, the City of Jeffersonville, and the River Ridge Development Authority. The design was completed with assistance from American Structurepoint providing the Environmental Team. Construction was completed with MAC Construction and WSP providing construction inspection.

This $15 million dollar project was completed in 2021 and connects two economic engines in the Ports of Indiana and the River Ridge Commerce Center which are responsible for $4 billion dollars in economic output in Southern Indiana.

The project was a collaborative effort between all of the stakeholders, the design team, and the construction team which overcame multiple challenges with historical/archaeological sites, endangered species, wetlands, karst features, and rugged terrain. The completion of this project has seen the realization of the primary vision of a direct connection between two major economic drivers in the area and provides direct access to the East End Crossing Project.

Attending the event were Jon Clodfelter, Jeromy Richardson, Jay Ridens, Eric Harned, and Bob Stein from UNITED, Jack Kaufman and Brian Dixon from Clark County, and Becky Packer and Greg Prince from INDOT.

Huge congratulations and thank you to everyone involved with this historic project.

Project Description: The city of Anderson desires to upgrade the central traffic system and modernize all 99 city-owned signals. Heather’s team completed a scoping report to prioritize the modernization schedule for the signals and determine the appropriate central system for the City’s needs, while following FHWA guidance. Improvements include new signal heads and wiring, new traffic signal cabinets and controllers, vehicle detection, and pedestrian push buttons and pedestrian signal heads where required.

 
Existing curb ramps will be reconstructed where required to provide ADA-compliant access. The project will replace aging signal infrastructure originally installed in 1984. In addition, the newly installed signal system will allow City signal staff to remotely monitor and diagnose issues while improving the overall operation of the system.
 

Approximate Project Cost: $1.2 million

Breadth of Services United provided: Survey, RW Verification, Environmental, Signal Design, Railroad Coordination, Utility Coordination
