I-579 URBAN OPEN SPACE CAP

This project is for the Sports & Exhibition Authority of Pittsburgh, and Allegheny County and involves the design of a structure over I-579 Crosstown Boulevard bounded by major roadways and structures on all sides. The structure (cap) will allow urban open space to be constructed on it creating a connection from the Lower Hill District to Downtown Pittsburgh. The Prime Consultant is HDR.

 

CARSON STREET SAFETY IMPROVEMENT PROJECT 

Monaloh was part of the Preliminary Engineering team for the SR 0837-A42 Safety Improvement Project in the City of Pittsburgh for PennDOT District 11-0. The Survey effort was directed towards areas required to supplement existing plan data and pedestrian crossings where ADA curb ramps are to be installed. Survey also collected data to complete drainage and driveway tie-in designs. Survey was done in a congested area during business hours. Survey work limits covered approximately 2.6 miles.

 

PARKWAY EAST CORRIDOR STUDY

The intent of the study was to evaluate corridor improvements to reduce crashes, improve travel time reliability and reduce congestion. Prime Consultant was Parsons Brinkerhoff. The study included 80 conceptual alternatives, 15 traffic signal improvements and 25 geometric improvements. Monaloh coordinated efforts to:

  • Obtain turning movement counts
  • Assess R/W impact areas
  • Identify involved utilities and contact utility companies

 

CAMPBELLS RUN ROAD RECONSTRUCTION

Monaloh was involved in the both the Preliminary and Final engineering phases of the Campbells Run Road Reconstruction project. The survey work limits covered approximately 10,000 feet.

 Preliminary tasks included:

  • Field edit existing mapping.
  • Survey of structures/headwalls/hydraulic openings
  • Obtain cross sections at 50 foot intervals.
  • Establish existing R/W baseline

Final tasks included:

  • Staking alignment
  • Setting benchmarks
  • Locating borings
  • Staking right-of-way

 

CHESTNUT HILL EAST SITE STUDY

Project authorized by SEPTA with Pennoni Associates functioning as Prime. Monaloh provided services to prepare a detailed utility location plan.  

 

CASHLESS TOLLING IMPLEMENTATION/CONSTRUCTION CONSULTATION SERVICES

Monaloh provided topographic survey support to locate 41 type A signs on the Pennsylvania Turnpike. The initial task was to determine proposed locations followed by an “as-built” phase to document final installation location.
