The village of Mount horeb, a growing community of 6,500,
is located in western Wisconsin. A traffic study predicted
traffic volumes as high as 18,000 vehicles per day on Mount
horeb’s main street within a 20-year period. As a result, it
was recommended that the street be reconstructed as an
urban arterial roadway, with four traffic lanes, bike lanes,
curbs and gutters, sidewalks, landscaped medians, and
New residential and commercial developments along the
corridor being designed and built meant that existing terrain
and design constraints would be continuously changing.
Through its use of MicroStation, as well as GEOPAK and
StormCAD, Strand Associates was able to work hand in
hand with developers along the corridor that were using
AutoCAD, without the need for file conversions. MicroStation
also gave the firm the ability to provide quality visualizations
for public meetings.
Wide Ruins Access Road u.s. Bureau of indian affairs — navajo region dot
This project involved the design of an all-weather access road
into the historical Wide Ruins in Arizona, which date back to
the 1800s. The road will provide access to a modern school
and the Wide Ruins Chapter house community, and will be
built between and around historical sites that include a military
outpost, trading post, Kiva, and other ruins. During construction,
the archeological and historical sites will need to be protected
with retaining walls.
Bentley’s InRoads software helped designers manage all the
design files much more efficiently while the use of InRoads
and MicroStation allowed them to look at various alternate
designs in a short amount of time. In addition, design changes
were much easier to accomplish and visually interpret. The
software saved the team an estimated 500 man-hours.
