1st Street Improvements
WLC Engineering, Surveying and Planning was hired by the City of Casper to design and provide construction services for road and pedestrian surfacing , storm water, and watermain improvements. Prior to design and construction, WLC provided geotechnical information by obtaining asphalt cores for the length of 1st Street to determine the current section and develop a new design that fit the existing section. Specifically, design improvements included resurfacing concrete sidewalk and curb and gutter spot repairs 1st Street from Yellowstone to Beverly; retrofitting many of the sidewalks to include ADA ramps; limiting and eliminating pedestrian crossings; replacing watermain; and PMP overlay. Additionally, WLC provided construction contract administration. WLC phased the project to enable the contractor to complete large chunks of work along 1st Street. Willard Elementary School is near the east end of the project and phasing the project enabled construction adjacent to the school to be completed during the summer when school was not in session. This also allowed WLC to minimize road closures along 1st Street and only minimally affect traffic.
