4th & Poplar Leavenworth Intersection
Client: City of Leavenworth, Kansas
MHS worked closely with city staff and local stakeholders to provide a design tailored to local truck traffic so as to allow for a modified truck route with easier access onto US-73 highway. The 4th & Poplar signalized intersection design included the expansion of the existing 4 lane highway to include a right turn lane and 2 protected left turn lanes. The design involved detailed profile analysis to maintain an intersection grade suited for truck acceleration while still providing access to the existing park, football field, residences, and businesses. The 600 feet improvement to Poplar Street included the conversion of the existing ditch street to a curb and gutter street, replacement of a 72" CMP, ADA compliant pedestrian routing, and permitting.
Client: City of Lenexa
MHS teamed with a landscape architect and worked with City of Lenexa, KS, staff in deriving several concepts that implement the amenities identified in the Park Master Plan. Project design included 7 rain gardens, 7,800 SY of parking improvements, restroom facilities, water and sewer utiliity services, and nature play areas. Duties also included coordination with state and federal agencies and mitigation of critical habitat. Preserving native vegetation and the addition of rain gardens met the required Level of Service derived from the APWA BMP manual.
