Borough of Madison Samson Avenue Reconstruction Engineering CY2012 Existing Conditions Underground Infrastructure Federal Aid SRTS Application Reconstruction Alternatives Proposed Timelines Madison Land Use Services Dept September 24, 2012
Existing Conditions General Geometry and Layout Speed and Safety Controls Bicycle and Pedestrian use Intersection controls Schools, MGC and biped crossings Trees and Landscaping Leaning, overhanging branches, root intrusion Potable Water mains and services New mains and services (Discussion topic) Sanitary Sewer Infrastructure No surface replacement necessary Storm Sewer Infrastructure Reduction of Localized Flooding and Erosion Pavement conditions Utility trenching, edge erosion, un-eveness
Existing Conditions Samson Pavement Resurfacing Sections are in great need of resurfacing due to inconsistent treatment. The Safe Routes Sidewalk project has taken several years to prioritize and obtain federal funds, and the now funded portion of the project should not be concluded without a complete Mill and Overlay project. Samson Traffic conditions Traffic Calming measures are necessary due to the lack of consistent pavement width, sidewalk, curbing etc. Both Kings and Woodland have sidelines and bike route designators. Key intersections improved with accessible walks and improved visibility. Consistent treatment of curbs, aprons, ramps, inlets, bikeway, crossings and sidewalks will improve overall safety of all users. Upon completion, can be designated both “Safe Route to School” and a “Complete Street”.
