Abstract

This project is aimed at redesigning the intersection of I-290 and Vernon Street, including the bridge over I-290 on Vernon Street. Using industry standards, engineering software, and other appropriate sources, the level of service of the intersection, the crash rates associated with it, and the serviceability of the bridge will be assessed. The result of the project will be a determination of the most cost effective changes that will lead to improved intersection level of service, the same or lower intersection crash rates, and acceptable bridge capacity.
