SOLVING Problems and BUILDING Value
The Wyoming Avenue and Park Street area of the City of Sheridan consisted of aging streets and deteriorated underground infrastructure. This area is among the oldest in the City and the last reconstruction of this area was completed in the 1970’s. WWC was contracted to perform planning and design services to reconstruct a total of approximately 1.4 miles of urban streets. Included in the design were street and intersection geometric design and reconfigurations, replacement of all buried utilities (water, storm, sewer), private overhead utility relocations, and storm water system improvements and treatment systems.
The existing storm water collection system in this area was severely degraded. WWC incorporated substantial upgrades to the existing storm drain system including additional inlets and larger trunk lines to minimize flooding potential and incorporated storm water treatment systems to improve water quality to the Little Goose Creek.
The Wyoming Avenue/Park Street traffic flow has been a significant source of consternation within the downtown area for many years. WWC provided a much needed reconfiguration of poorly functioning and congested intersections to significantly improve the traffic flow into and out of the downtown area.
WWC provided streetscape enhancements including decorative lighting, colored concrete, trees, shrubs, decorative rock as well as the relocation of overhead utilities to facilitate public use.
WWC provided for the replacement and upsizing of water mains and services within the area to improve fire protection and residential supply.
