The purpose of this project is to reconstruct and widen two (2) miles of Alves Lane in New Braunfels, Texas (from SH 46 to Barbarosa Road) from a two-lane roadway to a three-lane roadway, including significant drainage and utility improvements. M&S Engineering was responsible for the planning, scheduling, and coordination of two public meetings for adjacent landowners and area residents. The effort included preparing exhibits, making presentations, meeting with land owners and citizens during the workshop, one-on-one onsite meetings with landowners, and responding to inquiries. This project had strong public support. M&S Engineering also prepared the PSE, ROW surveying, utility design and other related engineering services for this project.
Sherwood Surveying and S.U.E. performed the design and right-of-way (ROW) surveying for this two-mile roadway and drainage widening and reconstruction project. The design surveying consisted of establishing survey controls, locating all improvements within the ROW, obtaining one foot contour information, locating apparent ROW and creating a DTM. The team also prepared ROW acquisition plats and field notes on 40+ parcels. Sherwood also prepared a QL-B utility map of the project area (between SH 46 and Barbarosa) including two miles of roadway and drainage outfalls. Numerous utilities were mapped including water, sewer, gas distribution, high pressure gas lines, electric (OH/UG), telephone (OH/UG), and cable-TV. This effort included Quality Level A (potholing) of existing high- pressure gas mains in the project area. The surveying and SUE work on this project has been completed.
