Project Description: The added travel lanes project along SR 930 from Parnell Avenue to Crescent Avenue also resulted in the modification of four signalized intersections along the corridor. The design speed of SR 930 required advance loop detection at the intersection of SR 930 & Anthony Blvd.; however, the close proximity of the bridge over the St. Joseph River required a more creative use of vehicle detection technologies. To meet the client’s expectation of not altering the newly constructed bridge deck, Heather recommended the use of Microloop vehicle detection in the vicinity of the bridge. The recommended detection technology allowed the required advance detection to be installed in advance of the signal while leaving the bridge deck untouched.
Approximate Project Cost: $6.1 million
