Brookings Downtown Streetscape
The Brookings Downtown Streetscape project involved reconstructing four blocks of Main Avenue in Brookings, SD and included utility replacement, roadway replacement, sidewalk, decorative features, and street lighting. Civil Design Inc worked as a team with the architect, the City of Brookings, and Brookings Municipal Utilities (BMU) to complete this project. In the design phase of the project, CDI worked closely with BMU to resolve conflicts between proposed and existing utilities. Additionally, CDI designed the street profiles and typical roadway sections for Main Avenue. The primary challenge in the street design was creating a roadway profile and typical sections that matched into existing grades and met Americans with Disabilities Act standards for accessibility. Besides CDI’s involvement with utilities and street design, CDI provided preliminary survey, storm sewer design, construction staking, construction observation, project and contract management.
