Multi-Modal Transportation Improvements

About The Project

RVE provided construction management and inspection services required to successfully oversee the Multi-Modal Transportation Improvements to Mantua Avenue for the Borough of Wenonah. This project was funded by the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) through a 2014 Transportation Alternatives Program (TAP) Grant administered by the New Jersey Department of Transportation (NJDOT). Work for this project included the construction of concrete bump-outs at the intersecting roadways located along Mantua Avenue from Monroe Avenue to Marion Avenue, the construction of new ADA-compliant curb ramps, the construction of new curb and raised concrete islands, the replacement of the existing sidewalk, the reuse of the existing slate and bluestone sidewalks, the installation of 2-inch conduit and PSE&G provided secondary pedestals at pedestrian lighting locations and the striping of the crosswalks and bicycle lanes. For this project, it was important to maintain pedestrian access through the work zone at all times. This entailed detouring pedestrians safely across Mantua Avenue at adjacent intersections. Work was coordinated with the local residents and businesses to ensure pedestrian and vehicular access was maintained throughout the duration of the project. Bump-outs were also constructed along Mantua Avenue to calm traffic through the community. As the bump-outs were constructed, maintenance and protection of traffic (MPT) was set up in accordance with the project plans and the FHWA’s Manual on Uniform Traffic Control Devices (MUTCD) while ensuring traffic along Mantua Avenue was maintained.
