Roadway Reconstruction and Widening
Services
Phase I/II Design

Peralte-Clark performed Phase I and Phase II design of roadway widening and reconstruction for 1.5 miles of Arlington Heights Road between Lake-Cook Road and north of IL Route 83 in Lake County, Illinois. The project includes traffic analysis at the intersections with Lake-Cook Road, Checker Road and Illinois Route 83 to determine safety and mobility improvements, crash analysis, development of alternatives for mainline geometry, Phase I preliminary and environmental engineering services, and public involvement activities. Due to the COVID-19 global pandemic, a Virtual Public Forum was developed where the general public were able to access project presentation materials and the public comment forms and interactive map via the project website. Peralte-Clark worked directly with members of the GIS department at LCDOT to develop an interactive map and public comment system to gather feedback from the public their issues and concerns related to the project corridor. The Virtual Public Forum was held for four weeks and received over 2,500 “hits” to the project website as well as over 140 written comments and 315 “likes” of comments posted.

The team did a very nice job with the virtual public meeting. Great work – I’m appreciative of all the effort you all put in!

CDOT Quad Communities/Bronzeville Cottage Grove Corridor Improvements

Location
Chicago, IL
Project type
Streetscape Enhancements
Services
Phase I/II Design

This project is in the heart of the Bronzeville neighborhood and is slated for robust revitalization efforts as part of the City’s INVEST South/West initiative and to model the vibrant cultural core of the Quad Communities. The Peralte-Clark team is working with CDOT and the community to foster authentic change and revival through infrastructure improvements and public art/placemaking initiatives.
The Quad Communities/Bronzeville Cottage Grove Corridor Improvements span a total of 2 miles of Chicago streets and are concentrated along three major corridors:

·  47th Street, Prairie Avenue to Cottage Grove Avenue
·  43rd Street, Prairie Avenue to Cottage Grove Avenue
·  Cottage Grove, 42nd Street to 47th Place

The goal of the project is to provide a safe, walkable, and attractive street that will foster community and economic growth. As a neighborhood core, the project area is a focal point for pedestrian activity, shopping, public spaces and quality of life amenities for local residents. Through the concept design process, the streetscape will seek to improve safety and connectivity, as well as pay tribute to the Bronzeville history through artistic representation within the public space.

Due to COVID-19, an on-line forum was utilized as the community meeting platform to solicit information to advance the design concepts. Live polling was conducted during the presentation for input from the community residents regarding corridor concepts, improvement location and timing, branding, corridor concerns and features, priorities, issues, and character. Links to the project website and survey were provided seeking more in-depth community input.
