Burkart Boulevard/Southern Bypass

HWC is responsible for full-time inspection of the construction of Burkart Boulevard Phase I. The project is 2.3 miles of new roadway, a bridge over the L&I Railroad, along with a multi-use trail located in Seymour, Indiana.

Phase I is a new segment of roadway to provide a bypass to Freeman Field from US 50. The scope of this project included clearing of farm fields and some wooded areas. Constructing new embankments and roadway, installing drainage culverts and several box culverts. The project has a single span bridge over the L&I Railroad and a long segment of MSE Wall from each end bent east and west of the railroad. The project has new asphalt pavement with a roundabout at the O’Brien Street intersection. The contract has a paved multi-use trail along the entire length. Included also is installing guard rail, pavement markings and signage, and lighting at the roundabout.

The roundabout will be open to traffic this November. The contract completion date is October 31, 2021. The $17.3 million LPA project was funded by the City of Seymour and Indiana Department of Transportation.

HWC prepared the design plans for this $25 million, 3.8 mile extension of Burkart Boulevard around the southern portion of the City of Seymour. Increasing train traffic has forced the City to pursue a grade separated crossing and new alignment roadway to provide an unimpeded access route to the local hospital. HWC developed preliminary costs for the project and assisted with obtaining federal funding. Design tasks included new roadway design, roundabout intersections, drainage, a multi-use path, right-of-way assessments, coordination with impacted property owners, and overall cost estimating for the project. The project was constructed in three phases.

Cosmo/Bolt and Tie Mixed-Use

HWC partnered with Jeffersonville, Indiana-based developer, the Cornerstone Group, and Indianapolis-based Envoy, to complete the Cosmo/Bolt and Tie mixed-use project in Clarksville, Indiana. The site is located along Woerner Avenue in the South Clarksville Mixed-Use District, and is the first major redevelopment project in this District. The new mixed-use facility is a four-story, 135,000+ SF building with an outdoor amenity area located on the roof. The first floor includes a restaurant space, office/retail suites, co-working office suites, and common areas. The remaining floors of the building include 96 apartments units.

Bridge #227 Replacement and CR 300 East Reconstruction

HWC evaluated CR 300E from CR 1200S to CR 1250S for current safety conditions due to past accidents and public concern. The evaluation found the existing roadway geometry is equivalent to a design speed of 20 mph. In addition, Bridge 227 over Moots Creek is in the middle of this road segment and was identified for replacement through the bridge inspection. Based upon this information, White County proceeded with a 45 mph design speed for project development for the corridor to balance the factors of construction cost, construction impact to residents, safety improvements, and required no relocations.  The final project scope included 0.6 miles of reconstructed roadway, a single-span, welded-plate girder bridge using galvanized rebar and galvanized steel, retaining walls, intersection design, drainage design, waterway permits, design minimization to wetlands & Moots Creek, driveway relocations, ROW acquisition of 12 parcels, and construction inspection. The project was bid in April 2020 and completed in May 2021 with 100% local funds. 

This project utilized the unique technique and materials of galvanized structural steel, galvanized rebar, and fiber reinforcement in the concrete bridge deck and approach slabs. The previous bridge was built in 1981 and needed replacement after less than 40 years of service. The galvanized steel and rebar are anticipated to achieve the target 100-year bridge service life with limited maintenance requirements.

This project was recognized as a 2022 State Finalist for ACEC’s Engineering Excellence award.

Dirtbuster Carwash

HWC provided the design for The Dirtbuster Carwash in Whitestown, Indiana. The Dirtbuster Carwash is a tunnel style carwash that was built to provide an automatic wash for vehicles. The site also has a self-serve vacuum station for cleaning vehicle interiors. The site was subdivided from a larger parcel and needed extensions for sanitary and storm sewers.
