Downtown Savannah Streetscapes Improvements
In an effort to preserve Savannah’s history and culture, the City of Savannah launched Phase-1 of the Downtown Savannah Streetscapes Improvements initiative which addressed the historic corridors of Broughton Street, Bay Street, and River Street. Conceptual drawings were created that focused on pedestrian and bicycle safety, smart transportation design, historic preservation and opening opportunities for activities and events for both residents and visitors alike. In addition, these updates focused on continuing the drive for green infrastructure goals such as reducing the burden on the existing urban stormwater infrastructure though infiltration and blended streetscape improvement practices.
Long Engineering (LONG) provided surveying services for all three streets, totaling approximately 5 miles of roadway as well as performing QLB subsurface utility engineering (SUE) on Broughton Street from MLK Jr. Blvd. to Broad Street. SUE services included records research, designating, surveying, and CADD. More than 24,000 feet of utilities were identified. Concurrently, LONG’s Land Development division provided civil engineering design input and attending public meetings in the preparation of conceptual designs for all three streets. LONG was responsible for providing full construction documents, including grading and drainage plans, utility plans, and erosion and sediment control plans, for all associated site improvements. Permitting services through the City of Savannah, bidding assistance and construction period services was also provided.
