INNOVATION IN ROADS
Louis Berger group Inc.
preparation of Feasibility and preliminary study of Bypass Between nH- 76 and nH- 8
The national Highways Authority of India appointed the louis Berger Group to
prepare a feasibility study with a preliminary study of a Udaipur city Bypass
between nH- 76 and nH- 8 in rajasthan, India. The $120 million, dual three-lane
bypass will provide a safe, congestion-free alternative to an existing bypass.
The 25-kilometer bypass included service roads at urban locations, two
interchanges, and 13 bridges, underpasses, and culverts.
mXroAD enabled accurate design with rapid evaluation of alternative
alignments, side road and junction designs, and material quantity and
cost estimates. Google earth provided 3D visualization for the engineers,
contractors, and client, and S TAAD.pro was used to analyze and design the
structures. project Wise managed documentation and eliminated redundant
data. The software reduced alignment design time up to 40 percent.
Baltimore grand prix Infrastructure Improvements
Baltimore, maryland, united States
preparation for the inaugural Grand prix involved $7.2 million in infrastructure
improvements, including major design changes to the city streets. Work
included roadway widening, curb realignment, pavement analysis, and traffic
signal modification on the race track and visitor traffic routes. With construction
scheduled for completion by July 2011, mccormick Taylor had just three months
to complete design and deliver plans, specifications, and estimates.
Inroads and microStation facilitated effective visualization, rendering digital
terrain models for photo simulation. The 3D models saved money by revealing
constructability problems early. project Wise also helped deal with survey data
in real time and enabled mccormick Taylor to quickly turn around last-minute
track configuration changes.
