More About This Project

Category: Construction Inspection, Transportation

LFA provided Construction Observation and Inspection services leading a team of LFA staff, Lochmuller and McCormick Engineering for the Olive Street / Sample Street Overpass Intersection Reconstruction project. The project is a combined effort between St. Joseph County and the City of South Bend.  his multi-jurisdictional project includes bridge rehabilitation on both Olive Street and Sample Street bridges over the Norfolk Southern and Grand Truck Western Railroad (Canadian National), requiring significant coordination. Additional work included reconstruction of 3,660 ft. of Olive Street and 2,750 ft. of Sample Street to improve drainage, install lighting and improve pedestrian movement. A roundabout was also constructed at the intersection of Olive Street and Sample Street. Significant effort was required to coordinate utility relocations for MetroNet, AEP, NIPSCO and Comcast. Additionally, LFA coordinated water utility work with the City of South Bend during the street reconstruction and roundabout construction process.  Beyond the coordination challenges we also worked the with the County to determine a better temporary barrier rail system on the bridge that results in less long-term maintenance concerns on the bridge deck. One of the most critical items of this project was the Maintenance of Traffic and impacts on local residents, businesses and industry. We proactively addressed these concerns through direct contact with the impacted parties.
