Erdman Anthony provided preliminary and final design services as well as construction inspection services for the $1.48 million locally administered federal aid project. The project identified safety and capacity issues by relocating approximately 1,400 feet of O’Connor Road to form a 4-way, signalized intersection with NY Route 31F and Jefferson Avenue. The project included streetscape improvements, decorative street lighting, demolition of an abandoned gas station, burial of overhead utilities, and a number of pedestrian mobility improvements.
An enhanced gateway to Perinton Park and the Erie Canal was also incorporated in the project to improve the visual characteristics of the urbanized corridor and encourage alternative modes of transportation. Extensive coordination with state, federal, and local agencies addressed the social and environmental impacts of the project, including significant right-of-way acquisitions, avoidance of impacts to federal wetlands, acquisition of public parklands, and handling of petroleum contaminated soils encountered during construction.
