Olive Street / Sample Street Overpass Intersection Reconstruction
Indiana Toll Road, St. Joseph County & City of South Bend
St. Joseph County, Indiana
This multi-jurisdictional project between St. Joseph County and the City of South Bend included rehabilitation on both Olive and Sample Street bridges over the Norfolk Southern and Grand Truck Western Railroad (Canadian National), requiring significant coordination. Additional work included reconstruction of Olive and Sample Street, improved drainage, lighting installation and improved pedestrian movement. During this project, a roundabout was being constructed at the intersection of Olive and Sample Street. LFA coordinated and facilitated utility relocations for MetroNet, AEP, NIPSCO, Comcast and water utility work with the City of South Bend during construction. An alternative temporary barrier rail system was evaluated for use on the bridge that resulted in less long term maintenance concerns. Maintenance of traffic and impacts on residents, business and industry were constantly being evaluated and modified during construction.
