Muskegon neighborhoods transformed with street revamps

June 18, 2015

By Barbara Marczak, PE and Connie Houk, PE

Civil engineering is a profession that improves the quality of life for all people. Sometimes, in the crunch of meeting budgets and deadlines, it’s easy to lose sight of that. The measurements, calculations, lane widths, pavement types, and estimations are all details that come together to create places for people.

We’re proud to be a part of the $5 million Muskegon and Webster Avenue reconstruction project in the City of Muskegon. Here’s a recent Muskegon Chronicle story reminding us of the benefits it will provide to real people and to the community. In every meeting the design team considered the neighborhoods and made the goal of uniting these neighborhoods an important factor throughout this project’s design. For example, the bumpouts in the street (shown in the photo below) create more green space, lessen the distance across the street, and slow traffic down. These subtle details that make a big statement: people matter.
