Burkart Boulevard/Southern Bypass
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.
