Revitalizing Avalon's business district

Following the completion of the various phases of the project, the Borough of Avalon experienced a dramatic increase in the economic vitality of the business district.

Opportunity

The Business District Revitalization and Streetscape Project for the Borough of Avalon in New Jersey was a phased infrastructure reconstruction and improvement project intended to correct drainage and utility problems, promote safe bicycle and pedestrian use along the public transportation corridor on Dune Drive, and enhance the charm of the Business District.

Solution

Mott MacDonald provided preliminary and final design for the project as well as funding and permitting assistance and construction management, observation, and administration.

With relation to the adjacent street roadway reconstruction, we provided initial field survey, stormwater and sanitary sewer investigations of existing size, location and condition of each utility and preparation of contract drawings utilizing AutoCAD software.

The design for each roadway including the calculation of new vertical alignment as well as design of stormwater conveyance system upgrades. Other duties consisted of material takeoffs, technical specification design and contract advertisement, and recommendation for contract award and contract administration and inspection services.

We designed the roadway reconstruction contract in accordance with NJDOT Roadway and Bridges Specifications and AASHTO requirements.

Outcome

Stormwater system improvements included an innovative duplex pump station design that allowed for the gravity discharge of runoff during small to moderate rain events while using pumps to discharge runoff from larger rain events and minor tidal flooding.

Mott MacDonald used low-flow drip irrigation systems in all landscaped areas to reduce water use and improve environmental sustainability. We designed the roadway reconstruction contract in accordance with NJDOT Roadway and Bridges Specifications and AASHTO requirements.

Negative impacts and disruptions to the general public and business community were successfully minimized by engaging and communicating with all stakeholders throughout the planning, design, and construction process.

We assisted the Borough in obtaining TEA-21 and New Jersey Department of Transportation (NJDOT) Centers-of-Place and Local Aid funding for the construction of portions of the project.

Following the completion of the various phases of the project, the Borough of Avalon experienced a dramatic increase in the economic vitality of the business district. The upturn continued despite a national and regional economic downturn.
