Stinson Road, originally asphalt, had reached its life span due to recent and future developments along this corridor. The project consisted of the analysis, design, and construction inspection of a 0.84-mile corridor with a 3-leg roundabout at Highland Drive. The design widened the roadway to include 2 ft shoulder and 12 ft travel lanes. Additionally, to reduce maintenance the pavement section was changed from asphalt to concrete. This project required constant coordination with TxDOT for traffic control and construction phasing, since it intersected with the widening of Parker Road/FM 2514, which was under construction at the same time. The success of this project was in no small part due to BCC’s efficiency, communication, and coordination skills with internal and external stakeholders as well as the ability to innovate and be proactive solving complex issues.
Challenges overcome during construction included utility relocation delays, maintaining two-way traffic for a vital segment requiring resident and emergency access, and rerouting of drainage patterns for the corridor. BCC is currently designing the next phase of Stinson Road Improvements adjacent to the north, including a bridge over the Muddy Creek crossing.
BCC provided services to the City of Lucas for the design, project management, and construction inspection for the reconstruction of Stinson Road. The plans included the open drainage design with roadside swales and culverts, typical sections, roadway, roundabout, driveways, traffic control plans, signing and pavement markings, erosion control, and utility adjustments.
