PROJECT: HIKE AND BIKE TRAIL
CLIENT: City of Marion, South Carolina
Vaughn & Melton provided engineering design services for a transportation enhancement streetscape project along Bobby Gerald Highway for the City of Marion, South Carolina. The project provides safe pedestrian travel along an old railroad bed, and extends the hike and bike trail to the old railroad depot.
Care was taken in the design to meander through existing trees in order to keep all the current landscaping. Vaughn & Melton also designed new landscaping and street lights. One unique aspect of this project was to provide a section of the hike and bike trail to hold up under vehicular traffic in the area near the ball field which was used for parking. Drainage and handicap access was also a large part of this project.
