DOVE-OTTINGER ROAD IMPROVEMENTS AND PEDESTRIAN TRAIL
Town of Westlake/Hillwood
Peloton Land Solutions, a Westwood company designed local traffic improvements for 8,000 linear feet of Dove Road and JT Ottinger Drive including demolition of existing pavement structures, intersection design, addition of turning lanes, regulatory traffic signage and control, lane widening and paving overlay, design of major drainage conveyance structures, utility relocations, roadway pedestrian crossings, and driveway modifications for access to both the Deloitte University and Westlake Academy campuses. The roadway improvements were planned, surveyed, designed, and constructed on a fast-track schedule with major sections completed within approximately three months.
In addition to the roadway work, our team was engaged to assess the existing Westlake pedestrian trail crossing beneath Dove Road and extend the 8-foot-wide pedestrian trail 7,000 linear feet between this crossing and the Westlake Academy campus. The trail crossing is located within an existing box culvert and had experienced channel erosion, settlement, and continual back-water flooding. The design solutions to alleviate these negative conditions included the addition of a low-flow concrete conveyance channel, realignment of the concrete trail, and the redesign of the downstream channel and detention outfall structure.
Peloton Land Solutions, a Westwood company environmental scientists performed an environmental assessment of the area, obtained a Nationwide Permit 14 for the trail extension, performed a tree survey, and prepared tree removal/mitigation plans. Our registered landscape architects prepared landscape improvement/planting plans along the trail extension.
The project was funded by a development agreement between the Town of Westlake and a private developer, with major stakeholders including the Town of Westlake, Deloitte University, Westlake Academy, and Hillwood Properties.
