Widening of Schoolwood/Parkwood Drive & Euclid Street Sidewalk Project

OE was responsible for preparing design plans, specifications & engineer’s estimate (PS&E) for the City of La Habra on the Widening of Schoolwood/Parkwood Drive & Euclid Street Sidewalk Project. Schoolwood Drive had a rolled curb and an uneven sidewalk on the west side of the street enabling vehicles to park over the sidewalk that is used by the children attending Imperial Middle School and Las Positas Elementary School. The children attending those schools use Schoolwood Drive to walk to school while parents use it as a drop-off and pick-up zone. The roadway work involved the removal of a rolled curb along Schoolwood Drive, widening the street 7 feet to the west, and installing a conventional type of curb, gutter, and sidewalks. Furthermore, the project involved the bridge on Euclid Street south of Imperial Highway that had a sidewalk less than 3 feet in width, which forced students and wheelchair bound individuals to use the street to cross over the bridge, exposing them to unsafe conditions. The scope of work entailed widening the sidewalk on both sides of Euclid Street by approximately 3 feet on each side. Furthermore, the work provided adding a northbound right turn lane, bringing the 2 curb ramps on the South leg to ADA compliance, and reconstructing a median on the South leg. Due to the nature of the project, the design effort had to be coordinated with the La Habra School District and the City of La Habra.
