North Campus Drive & 16th Avenue
Safety for the traveling public on campus prompted the SDSU Facilities and Services Department to retain CDI to design improvements to the intersection of North Campus Drive and 16th Avenue.
Positioned near Coughlin Alumni Stadium, Frost Arena, and the Performing Arts Center, this intersection was subjected to short bursts of heavy traffic. The former intersection had a four-way stop but had been built on a curve, creating confusion for the public, especially during major events. CDI designed a well-lit 90-degree intersection with a four-way stop and turning lanes to improve traffic flow.
Drainage in this area had always been deficient. Standing water on the street reduced the life of pavement and resulted in the need for frequent repairs. Drainage was improved by providing additional storm drainage and increased longitudinal grades.
