Bloom Companies provided design engineering services for the reconstruction of approximately one mile of W. Lincoln Avenue in the City of New Berlin in the New Berlin Industrial Park, between S. Calhoun Road and S. Moorland Road.
This 2-lane rural roadway was reconstructed to urban standards with two 12‑foot lanes and 8-foot paved shoulders. This local program reconstruction project involved vertical profile adjustments to improve drainage along the roadway. The roadway improvements included a new Union Pacific Railroad crossing with improved warning devices. An Office of Commissioner of Railroads (OCR) hearing was held. Wetlands were delineated and impacts were mitigated through the wetland bank. The project implemented a system of bio-swales designed to provide runoff detention and improve quality before entering Deer Creek. Water main and sanitary manholes were also upgraded as part of the design. Utility Coordination was required throughout the corridor to avoid conflicts with proposed storm sewer and bio-swales. Turning radii at the three side road intersections were improved to accommodate truck traffic in the Industrial Park.
Bloom’s services included preliminary and final design, plat preparation, public involvement, agency coordination, utility and railroad coordination, Environmental Report, Pavement Type Selection Report (PTSR), Design Study Report, Transportation Management Plat (TMP), Wisconsin Regulatory Approval for Project Permit (WRAPP) permit; and preparation of Plans, Specifications and Estimates (PS&E) for construction documents.
