Marion / Michigan / Main Roundabout
City of South Bend
South Bend, Indiana
LFA was selected as the lead consultant for the design team to develop plans for reconfiguring the north confluence of traffic from the City’s existing one-way streets. The project proposed a roundabout as part of the City’s Smart Streets initiative converting one-way streets to two-way traffic throughout downtown. LFA’s first task was translating the Smart Streets MasterPlan concept into working drawings to facilitate discussions, collaboration and refinement with city staff. LFA leveraged their local presence to develop the preferred geometry and coordinate many other features and amenities in the project’s limits to ultimately make South Bend’s downtown more attractive to pedestrians, bicyclists and residents. The project’s location immediately south of Memorial Hospital required unique maintenance of traffic through construction.
