Hugh Mercer Elementary

The reconstruction of Cowan Boulevard necessitated a significant modification to the parking and traffic flow at Hugh Mercer Elementary School.  Welford Engineering was retained to examine current conditions, identify operational and safety concerns, develop improvement plans, coordinate with VDOT and other entities, and assist the City in implementation.  Our design separated bus operations from vehicle drop-offs, provided significant additional parking supply on the site, addressed site maintenance access requirements, and provided a secure location for a new playground.  Welford Engineering also designed modifications to existing storm water management drainage in order to control runoff entering the adjacent residential neighborhood and the Smith Run watershed.
