We surveyed and designed 42 bus stops for the Northern Arizona Intergovernmental Public Transportation Authority (NAIPTA) to improve mobility to meet US DOT ADA guidelines. Improvements included addition of landing pads, accessible seating areas, pedestrian crossings, sidewalk extensions and curb ramp connections to existing public infrastructure. We completed plans and specifications with submittals to both ADOT and the City of Flagstaff while also coordinating ROW and easement research.
Subsequenlty we were asked by NAIPTA to develop Transit Guidelines and Standards associated with general Bus Stop Mobility including bus stop locating and placement, configuration, amenities, grades, walls and curbing, signage and structures.
See our photo gallery for other past featured projects. The Woodson team provided civil engineering and land surveying services for this development consisting of 33,000 SF of retail, a public plaza at the first floor, four stories of 222 residential units and a five story parking garage. We designed the sewer and water utilities, Low Impact Development (LID) features and the stormwater conveyances within this partially developed site. We are also part of the construction team and are providing construction staking services and post-design engineering services, construction administration and closeout certifications.
We completed a final drainage report in which storm water from the proposed development would connect with existing underground detention basins, without adversely affecting the downstream drainage patterns. Unique aspects to the project included connecting a landlocked courtyard to the system, as well as creating bio-retention cells to filter runoff and allow it to infiltrate.
