Horrocks Engineers Designs Nation’s First Protected Bike Intersection

When improvements to 200 West between 900 South and North Temple are completed in October 2015 (anticipated), Salt Lake City will be home to the first protected bicycle intersection in the United States. 200 West will offer reconfigured and improved multi-modal connections between downtown businesses, neighborhoods, hotels, and the Salt Palace Convention Center.

Horrocks Engineers, working closely with Alta Planning + Design and Salt Lake City Corp., designed the multi-modal corridor along 200 West. The 200 West corridor will include:

  1. Modifications from a 5-lane facility to a 2 or 3-lane facility with a protected bike lane on each side of the road. The bicycle lanes will be separated from traffic by on-street parking and raised curb.
  2. Protected bicycle intersection at the 300 South intersection. Salt Lake City will be the first U.S. city with a protected bike intersection. This allows for cyclists to have exclusive movements at the intersection, including signal phasing, and free-right movements.
  3. Implementation of green and tan colored pavement markings and symbols.

Several advantages made 200 West a good candidate for corridor improvements. In addition to being located in downtown Salt Lake City, 200 West: is wide with little automobile traffic (90% under-utilized – current usage is 7,000 cars per day, but the street can handle up to 70,000 cars per day); intersects with bike lanes at North Temple, South Temple, 200 South, 300 South (protected bike lane), 800 South, and 900 South; and is close to TRAX stations (900 South and South Temple) and several of the City’s Green Bike kiosks.

“Helping Salt Lake City with a first-of-its-kind project that advances the City’s goals for a multi-modal downtown by encouraging active transportation provided Horrocks Engineers with many challenges, which led to innovative and real-world solutions. It is a pleasure for us to be a part of helping communities such as Salt Lake City grow, adapt, and innovate as they seek to improve the lives and experiences of visitors and citizens,” said Brian Christensen, PE, PTOE, principal with Horrocks Engineers and project manager for the 200 West Improvements.

Featuring the nation’s first protected bike intersection, the 200 West Improvement project has received significant media attention. Links to media outlets focusing on the 200 West project as well as links to the City’s informational website and videos follow:

Horrocks Project Receives 2014 Arizona Transportation Partnering Excellence Award

The partnership team of ADOT, LOR Construction, Horrocks Engineers, and Premier Engineering was recently selected as the winner of the 2014 Arizona Transportation Partnering Excellence Award for their work on the US 60, Salt River Canyon Rest Area project. Horrocks Engineers was responsible for all construction administration activities for this project.

IMG_1223 US 60 partnering Award 3

The US 60, Salt River Canyon Rest Area project renovated the rest area on US 60 between Globe and Show Low, Arizona. The improvements included:

  • New composting toilets
  • New solar electrical system
  • New heating system
  • New well pump
  • Updating the rest area to be ADA compliant
  • Repaving the parking lot
  • Completing landscaping

This project is part of ADOT’s rest area rehabilitation program, which is renovating rest areas along Arizona state highways.

The team implemented numerous partnering principles throughout the project. An open line of communication was kept with all team members, which allowed for issues to be discussed and resolved at the lowest level possible. Additionally, all public and private stakeholders on the project remained actively involved. One of these stakeholders was the San Carlos Apache Tribe. The rest area is located on the Tribe’s reservation and once the project was complete, the Tribe blessed the new building.

Each year, the Arizona Transportation Partnering Excellence Award is given to project teams who successfully apply partnering principles and processes within the transportation industry. A panel of government agencies, contractors, and consultants judge each project application based on criteria including charter/mission of the project team, goals, issue resolution, teamwork, and value/outcomes.

The team will be presented with the award at the 64th Annual Roads and Streets Conference in April. Horrocks is honored to be part of such a great team!
