The existing 5-legged intersection was a source of traffic delays and safety concerns for the City of Woodstock. The City desired a modern, single-lane roundabout intersection that would improve conditions and be an entryway into the historic downtown square.
Hampton, Lenzini and Renwick, Inc. (HLR) completed this federally-funded Phase I and II roundabout design. Phase I included refinement of the roundabout geometrics, environmental coordination, and public coordination. Since federal funding will be used for construction, coordination with IDOT and all necessary forms and procedures were followed. An open house public meeting was held to solicit public input on the roundabout.
Phase II design services included pavement design, roadway plan and profiles, water relocation, storm sewer relocation, ADA sidewalk layout, pavement marking, signing, lighting, soil erosion and sediment control, and utility coordination. Land acquisition services were necessary to acquire right-of-way and easements needed for construction of the project. The lighting design, to be used as part of the aesthetic entryway to the historic downtown square, included the selection of multiple LED poles that matched the poles used in the downtown area and meet IDOT requirements.
Environmental coordination included SHPO and City of Woodstock’s Historic Preservation Commission due to proximity to the Woodstock Square Historic District.
