KS Associates completed a major capital improvement project for Avon Lake City Schools, just in time for the 2012-2013 school year. Our team provided design engineering services for several improvements at Avon Lake High School aimed at accommodating increased traffic, resolving flooding issues, expanding parking and improving safety.
Avon Lake High School experienced rapid growth, and with that growth came increased traffic, particularly at the school’s main entrance off of S.R. 83/Avon Belden Road. KS Associates performed a traffic study, which warranted the addition of a traffic signal and left turn lane off of S.R. 83. KS Associates designed the signal and turn lane, along with a new bridge over a natural creek.
Our site engineering team identified and designed corrections for flooding 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 Associates 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 times.
