Transportation Access Study, AZ DEMA – Robert assisted with the preparation of a transportation access study for a proposed industrial complex. The study included a Design Concept Report outlining the horizontal and vertical alignments of a four-lane access road from I-40, and across the BNSF railroad right-of-way. The existing railroad underpass was evaluated to determine future use including widening. The final product included preliminary plan sheets, cost estimates, a review of right-of-way issues, and utility impacts to the chosen alignments.
