Parkhill was retained by the City of Levelland and the Levelland Economic Development Corporation to plan, plat and design the infrastructure improvements needed for a 400-acre rail park.


The park was planned in two bid phases: one for streets, water and sewer and the second for rail improvements. The streets, water and sewer phase included 14,589 square yards of 8-inch concrete pavement, a cast-in-place concrete box culvert, 2,700 linear feet of 8-inch sanitary sewer and 9,900 linear feet of 12-inch water line. The rail project consisted of 22,000 track feet of rail, drainage improvements and a significant amount of bulk excavation. Additionally, the park was designed so that there are no at-grade roadway/railway crossings which eases truck and rail traffic during loading and unloading.


One of the challenges presented by this rail park was drainage. The plains regions of the Texas Panhandle are notoriously flat and so drainage must be carefully designed if it is to be effective. Parkhill designed a combination of street flow, channel flow, box culvert systems and storage ponds to address storm water runoff within the park.

Public meetings, right-of-way preparation, paving, drainage water and wastewater design, traffic control plan and landscape plan

The Abram Street Rebuild is a one-mile project from Cooper Street to Collins Street designed by Parkhill | Schrickel Rollins and viewed as a catalyst to increase retail and business redevelopment in Downtown Arlington. This project was selected as an APWA Texas Chapter Project of the Year for 2020 in the Transportation Division.


A detailed master plan called for reducing the roadway section from five lanes (two lanes in each direction with continuous left-turn lanes) to a three-lane facility to increase parkway widths. The increased widths for sidewalks, landscape, and lighting improvements were created to invite more pedestrian traffic through this corridor in the downtown area. Also, on-street, back-in, and parallel parking areas were created. Part of the project included two “Welcome Mats” that announce the arrival to the downtown area when approaching from the west or the east. At the midpoint of the project, the street passes between Arlington City Hall and the Levitte Pavilion, an open-air amphitheater that hosts over 50 events per year. The space between city hall and the pavilion was developed into a plaza area that can be shut off from traffic using two sets of retractable bollards during special events and other festivals. The plaza is also the focal point of two major parades each year. Four major sculpture towers punctuate the plaza space and the new south entrance into the city hall.


Along with paving and drainage improvements, new water and sanitary sewer system were included in the project. This included a new 12” water line throughout the length of the project with connections to existing water lines on all cross streets and new meter connections. New 8″ to 12” sanitary sewer lines with new service lines were also included as part of this project. As part of the drainage improvements, concrete biofilter structures were designed to clean the first flush from rainfall events. The design also included traffic signals, irrigation, landscaping and streetscape improvements, and additional on-street parking.


Public involvement was a significant focus of the design team due to the change in the function of the facility. Since obtaining buy-in from the 52 business owners and tenants along this one-mile commercial strip was so important, Parkhill | SR invited representatives from each property along the route for a meeting with the team. Sketches were prepared to show the existing condition of the property at the street and how the proposed enhancements would look. Hand renderings for the project were completed by Jim Richards, Townscape, Inc. Once improvements for each property were agreed upon, they were incorporated into the project plans. As a part of the contract, the city required the project team to host one formal public meeting. After giving an overview of the project, meeting attendees were invited to visit one-on-one with the design team to discuss the layouts of the project broken down into five sections. Rather than having just a few people make comments, this allowed everyone who attended an opportunity to ask questions and make comments. This approach, along with the individual meetings prior to the formal session, resulted in a positive response from the public about this project and excited for the improvements in Downtown Arlington.

Roadway realignment, drainage design that included demolition of an existing bridge class culvert, extending a bridge class culvert, re-grading 7.5 acres of TxDOT right of way, signage and pavement markings, and design oversight for the traffic control plan

As the prime consultant, Parkhill was responsible for realigning US 82 to improve road user safety. Within the 1.1-mile project, TxDOT had documented one of two horizontal curves as a safety concern resulting from trucks veering off the roadway. The roadway realignment improved sight distance both with horizontal and vertical roadway adjustments.  

 

Our team also provided design oversight for the traffic control plan (TCP). The plan allowed lanes to remain functional, and the major intersection remained accessible. 

 

“Overall, it was a very successful project. One thing that we celebrated was the very few crashes (and no fatalities) during the duration of this project. This is a very high-speed rural intersection that had several TCP phases to get it constructed. We had a good design and a good contractor to execute the plan.” — Zach Husen, PE, TxDOT Area Engineer

 

As a result of the improvements, Parkhill provided a drainage design that included demolishing a bridge class culvert, extending a bridge class culvert, and re-grading TxDOT right of way. Parkhill developed the roadway and drainage for the roadway consisting of the US 82/US 183 intersection and the intersecting County Road 237.

New and additional freeway lanes, two new bridges (Center Street and Baird Farm), one replaced bridge (Collins Street), one frontage-road bridge and two braided-ramp bridges; also included Texas U-turns, continuous frontage roads and reversible managed lanes.

In 2002, Parkhill | Schrickel Rollins and Graham Associates joined forces and were selected to be the team to provide schematics and PS&Es to drastically upgrade Interstate 30 through Arlington, Texas. The Three+ Bridges project extended 3 miles from Cooper Street to Ballpark Way. The project not only improved the traffic flow along the IH-30 corridor and created easier access to Dallas Cowboys Stadium, Rangers Ballpark, and the other destinations in the Arlington Entertainment District, but it also made it a destination and created a sense of place with its enhanced bridges, enhanced retaining walls with 8 murals depicting the history of Arlington, decorative intersection paving and creative landscaping.


The improvements included new and additional freeway lanes, two new bridges (Center Street and Baird Farm), one replaced bridge (Collins Street), one frontage-road bridge, and two braided-ramp bridges. It also included Texas U-turns, continuous frontage roads, and reversible managed lanes.


In all, the project design moved over 1.6 million cubic yards of dirt and constructed over 500,000 square yards of concrete paving, 266,000 square feet of new bridges, over 400,000 square feet of retaining wall of all types, 12 new signal installations, and over 11.5 miles of storm drain pipe and boxes.


One of the biggest design challenges was to prepare a traffic control plan that would move over 100,000 vehicles per day into and through the corridor safely and efficiently. A balance between access and construction efficiency was the key.


Another challenge involved the development of a public involvement plan in order to get property owners and operators on board with a project that changed frontage road access from two-way to one-way, revised sight lines, and disrupted traffic for over 4 years during construction. The team worked diligently with elected officials, the Chamber of Commerce, TxDOT, City of Arlington staff, property owners and operators to sell the benefits of the project.


The project was a huge success! It was designed and constructed on time while managing traffic for both a Super Bowl and an NBA All-Star Game. It also came in more than 7% under budget.
