Fort Drum connector (i- 81 to uS 11)
Pamelia and Le Ray, New York, United States
the new york State Department of transportation (nySDOt) is planning a
new four-lane connector between I- 81 and US Route 11 in northern New York
to improve access to the Fort Drum U.S. Army Base. The high-profile project
will alleviate traffic congestion affecting the towns of Pamelia and Le Ray
in Jefferson County as well as provide a redundant military route to Fort Drum.
MicroStation, InRoads, and Project Wise enabled Lochner to work with
N YSDOT virtually. Visualizations were employed to show how the project
would look post-construction, and MicroStation design files were created that
contained a gridded representation of both the existing and proposed digital
terrain models of the roadways. Aerial photos were then photomatched with
these design files as the basis for photorealistic visualization.
ALSO NOMINATED IN SPECIAL CATEGORY: COMMUNICATING THROUGH VISUALIZATION (WINNER)
this project involved reconstruction of the Adirondack northway/interstate 87
interchange, three additional intersections along Route 67, and replacement
of a structurally deficient bridge over I- 87 in the town of Malta, N. Y., to
significantly improve safety, instill the presence of community by way of a
downtown highway corridor, and improve travel time and convenience.

The decision to construct five double-lane roundabouts along a one-mile
corridor made this project particularly challenging. InRoads helped overcome
initial resistance through effective community outreach that explained
construction sequence, traffic control plans, detours, and instructions and
safety regarding the use of roundabouts. The software produced an innovative
two-lane roundabout interchange design efficiently and accurately.
