To improve traffic flow and parking conditions for Como Elementary School, the Saint Paul School District needed extensive parking lot improvements. TKDA provided schematic, preliminary and final design services, as well as agency approvals/permitting, bidding and construction administration services to make the project a success.
This project involved the removal and replacement of nearly two acres of bituminous parking lot pavement. To improve the look and functionality of the parking area TKDA provided landscape design and stormwater management which included underground storage chambers. TKDA also performed analysis of the school bus and vehicle circulation. The design of a revised roadway and parking lot accesses along with sidewalk improvements and revisions improved traffic flow and ensured safe access for students. By coordinating with with the City of Saint Paul staff and Capital Region Watershed District, TKDA ensured the design met all applicable standards.
