PROJECT: ACQUONI ROAD ROUNDABOUT
CLIENT: Cherokee Department of Transportation
V&M was selected by the Cherokee Department of Transportation to provide surveying through design services for a roundabout at the intersection of Drama Road and Acquoni Road in Cherokee, NC. The new design alleviated traffic congestion at the existing signalized intersection, which was previously causing traffic to back up on the Drama Road bridge, subsequently impacting traffic flow on US 441.The scope of the project was to provide the Cherokee Department of Transportation with topographic surveys and full roadway design services for the roundabout, including traffic control plans, and erosion control plans. Because Acquoni Road is a state road, this project required extensive coordination with the North Carolina Department of Transportation (NCDOT).
Construction was completed in late 2013. V&M prepared bid documents and specifications, and assisted with contract letting, and provided limited construction administration for this project.
