Avon Lake High School Improvements, Avon Lake City Schools, Ohio

KS Associates completed a major capital improvement project for Avon Lake City Schools in time for the 2012-2013 school year. KS provided design services for several improvements at Avon Lake High School that improved traffic, drainage issues, parking and safety.

The High School's rapid growth resulted in ncreased traffic, particularly at the school’s main entrance off of S.R. 83/Avon Belden Road. KS performed a traffic study, which warranted the addition of a traffic signal and left turn lane off of S.R. 83. KS designed the signal and turn lane, along with a new bridge over a natural creek. KS also identified and designed corrections for drainage issues in parking areas and athletic fields, and developed plans to increase parking capacity.

Despite the many components of this complex, fast-paced project, KS completed design for $700,000 worth of construction in five weeks from authorization to proceed. The project improved safety, and also eliminated the need for the school’s Student Resource Officer to provide traffic control during peak traffic.

Since 2009, following the passage of an $18.5 million levy, KS has been assisting Avon Lake School District in implementing a series of capital improvements to classrooms and school buildings including elementary, middle school and high school facilities. KS has played a role in the success of those projects, providing responsive, professional civil engineering and surveying services.
