Library Road Phase III, Washington State University, Pullman, WA

Washington State University

Library Road Phase III is a continuation of improvement work begun in 2000. The improvements to the campus infrastructure in the area of Library Road will provide greater service capacity and a more pleasant environment, enhancing pedestrian movement, reducing regular vehicular traffic, and maintaining service access and ADA parking areas. Traffic circulation and pedestrian safety at the transit hub located at the intersection of Campus and Thatuna Streets will also be improved. White Shield supported KPFF Consulting Engineers and the University with a high-density topographic survey of an approximate 8-acre area to facilitate streetscape re-development. The survey included mapping of all above ground structures including building corners and doorways, trees, utilities, signs and curbs. Horizontal and vertical control was established by static GPS observations. Other survey tasks included subsurface utility verification (potholing) to develop an underground utility map.
