Camelback Road Pedestrian Underpass
This multi-award-winning dynamic project included constructing a pedestrian underpass to connect a park and a commercial district separated by a busy six-lane street for better pedestrian access and road reconstruction of the six-lanes and signalized intersections—the intersection is located on Camelback Road between 24th and 26th Streets.
Construction of the pedestrian underpass enhanced access on foot, providing a safe passage for pedestrians. It also incorporated decorative pavement, landscaping, rubberized asphalt integrated into the pavement to minimize noise and vibration, and ventilation to ensure proper air circulation. Improvements at the surrounding intersections included enlarged pedestrian and bike refuge areas, new ADA area directional ramps at corners, canopy shade structures, wayfinding markers at intersections, and pedestrian countdown indicators on traffic signals.
