Utah Construction & Design (UC&D) recently awarded Springville City the 2015 Most Outstanding Project in Landscape/Public Space (Small) in recognition of Wayne Bartholomew Park. The park’s main attraction is a large pond spanning three acres long and 15 feet deep at its deepest, a sandy beach for swimming access and sunbathing, five pavilions, ample grass area with trees for shade, restrooms, changing rooms, a concession stand, a large plaza, a trail around the pond, fishing docks, designated areas to play volleyball or badminton, and striking mountain views. The City secured room for future expansion and already has plans to add larger pavilions and playgrounds. Horrocks worked closely with Logan Simpson Design and Springville City to complete this project with very limited budget and time.

Horrocks Engineers provided utility design, parking layout design, grading design, and stormwater design. In addition to standard stormwater services, Horrocks designed bioswales (landscape elements designed to remove silt and pollution from surface runoff water) to reduce runoff through landscaped drainage ways. The parking lot proved challenging due to its compound curve shape—no two lines are parallel.

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:
