The existing two-way stop-controlled intersection no longer supported the traffic demands along the roadway and there were several safety concerns. Lochmueller Group worked with the City of St. Charles to transition the intersection to better mobility and safety standards.
Lochmueller designed the new signalized intersection infrastructure, roadway lighting, CCTV PTZ cameras, and fiber optic networking to the County-wide Gateway Green Light infrastructure. Additionally, Lochmueller designed a new ADA-compliant crosswalk with RRFBs further east on Fox Hill, connecting a residential neighborhood to the Boschert Greenway trail and Fox Hill Park.
Design deliverables were developed using Power Geopak/Microstation utilizing a mixture of MoDOT, St. Louis County, and City of St. Charles standards to appropriately design the various elements of the project. Further, a Synchro traffic model was built for the corridor, allowing for programming of the new signal to function appropriately upon being put into operation.
Lochmueller also delivered drainage improvements, which included new permanent erosion control measures to prevent future damage to the open drainage portion of the corridor, which existed prior to the project.
