Yarger Engineering, Inc. prepares construction plans, specifications, probable cost statements, and bid documents for road and driveway improvements. The following are descriptions of Yarger Engineering, Inc.'s projects.
Roundabout Design, John A. Williams Boulevard at Lincoln Avenue, Bedford, Indiana
Yarger Engineering prepared roundabout construction plans for a single lane roundabout with an eastbound right turn lane at the intersection of John A. Williams Boulevard at Lincoln Avenue in Bedford, Indiana construction. Because of the tight right-of-way on three of the four corners, the roundabout was centered to the southwest of the existing intersection to take advantage of property purchased by the City to remove a building that was causing intersection sight distance problems. There were four other minor intersections that were redesigned as part of the roundabout project. The west Ninth Steet approach at Lincoln Avenue was closed and a new connection to Ninth Street was designed to Williams Boulevard. Even with the tight right-of-way, the roundabout was design to handle an interstate sized semi and trailer. Survey, drainage design and construction staking were provided by Bledsoe Riggert Cooper James.
Yarger Engineering prepared a traffic operational analysis that included three intersections for a gas station with a convenience market and 50 cabins. Because the site is near Holiday World, the traffic study considered the peak of the park season. Yarger Engineering the provided road and driveway construction plans that included an eastbound right turn and a westbound passing blister.
Traffic Impact Study and Driveway Design, Speedway Convenience Store, US 30 at SR 13, Pierceton, Kosciusko County, IN
Yarger Engineering prepared a traffic impact study for a convenience store and small retail center that included six intersections with two driveway options and two horizon years. They then prepared the driveway plans with turn lanes on US 30 and on SR 13 for submittal for INDOT driveway permits.
Detour and Maintenance of Traffic Design, Sewer Project, SR 64 and US 231, Huntingburg, Dubois County, IN
Yarger Engineering prepared a detour and maintenance of traffic plan for a sewer project that involved closing SR 64 and crossing US 231 in Huntingburg for submittal for INDOT driveway permits.
Traffic Operational Analysis and Median Design, Speedway Convenience Store, US 40 at Vestal Road, Plainfield, Hendricks County, IN
Yarger Engineering prepared a traffic operational analysis for a convenience store that included three intersections and a new road which changed the traffic patterns in the area. They also prepared road design plans to install a median on US 40. The existing US 40 driveway to the empty site was reused for the convenience store.
Bethany Christian Church moved to a new building on the south side of Washington. The site is much larger than needed by the Church, so they plan to sell off lots for other development, such as restaurants, convenience store, and apartments. They also planned to have soccer fields behind the church. Yarger Engineering, Inc. was hired to prepare a traffic impact study for the phased development of the site and to prepare roadway plans for a new driveway and turn lanes. After several changes to the site plan and eventually selling off the unused land as farm land, the driveway to the church was designed and constructed without turn lanes.
The Carey Realty Company development is part of a recent development pattern along SR 15 north of US 30 in Warsaw, Indiana. Along with Wal-Mart, Lowe's, Lakeside Chevrolet, Petro Planned Unit Development (PUD), and Thompson Thrift Development, the Carey Realty Company development is rapidly changing the face of northern Warsaw.
Yarger Engineering, Inc. prepared the traffic impact study and roadway improvement plans for SR 15 and CR 350 North. The study scope included one intersection at SR 15 and CR 350 North. It used its own computerized forecasting model and Synchro to forecast and analyze the traffic. Yarger Engineering, Inc. then designed the needed intersection improvements and provided construction engineering and inspection services. As a result of the study, SR 15 is being widened to provide left and right turn lanes to CR 350 North. CR 350 North teed in to SR 15 from the east. This project will provide the west approach of CR 350 North, which is also known as Sheldon Drive. CR 350 North/Sheldon Drive will provide a left and right turn lanes at SR 15. The existing signal was modified for the new lanes.
The Thompson Thrift Development is located in the northwest corner of SR 15 at CR 300 N in Warsaw. Yarger Engineering, Inc. prepared the traffic impact study and roadway plans, and provided construction engineering and inspection for SR 15 and CR 300 North.
The study scope included three intersections on SR 15 and CR 300 North. Yarger Engineering, Inc. used its own computerized forecasting model and Synchro to forecast and analyze the traffic. They then designed the roadway improvements and provided construction engineering and inspection services. As a result of the study, SR 15 was widened to provide left and right turn lanes to CR 300 North. CR 300 North was widened to provide a left turn lane at SR 15. The southeast corner was improved to facilitate semis turning into Da-Lite Screens.
The Petro Planned Unit Development (PUD) is located on the west of SR 15 between CR 250 N and CR 300 N. Yarger Engineering, Inc. prepared the traffic impact study and roadway improvement plans for SR 15.
The study scope included six intersections on SR 15 including two interchange ramps. Yarger Engineering, Inc. incorporated data from previous studies for the other developments and INDOT counts. Yarger Engineering, Inc. used its spreadsheet based forecasting tools and internally developed version of the highway capacity manual for the project. The company also used Synchro and SimTraffic to analyze the existing and future traffic conditions.
As a result of the study, Yarger Engineering, Inc. designed SR 15 to be widened from two to four lanes plus left and right turn lanes to the driveways for Petro PUD and Lakeside Chevrolet.
University High School developed a private high school in the southwest corner of 116th Street and Towne Road. Yarger Engineering, Inc. prepared a traffic impact study consisting of seven existing intersections and three new driveways. They also prepared plans and specifications for a driveway and associated turn lanes on 116th Street in coordination with nearby projects by Carmel and Hamilton County.
The Greenwood American Legion Post requested Yarger Engineering, Inc. to redesign their driveway to better inform motorists of the one-way circulation pattern for their parking lot. Yarger Engineering developed a marking and signage plan, and also provided construction engineering and staking.
Villa Francesca Roadway Design, Turkey Foot Road, Zionsville, Boone County, Indiana
Villa Francesca is a residential development along the west side of Turkey Foot Road. Yarger Engineering provided roadway design services. The Town of Zionsville required the developer to raise Turkey Foot Road approximately 5 feet at the north end and bring Turkey Foot Road along the entire frontage of Villa Francesca into compliance with the Town's standards. Turkey Foot Road is a 20 wide two lane roadway with no shoulders, drop offs and trees along the east side, and 16.5 feet of right-of-way along the east side. To the south of the development, the west side's right-of-way is 25 feet. North of the development, the west side's right-of-way is 40 feet. The Town's standards call for a 30 foot wide roadway including the curbs plus right turn lanes at subdivision entrances. Because of the spacing of the subdivision entrances to Villa Francesca and to Oak Ridge immediately to the north of Villa Francesca, the Town standards call for a continuous right turn lane for most to the length of the project; therefore, the width of the pavement west of the centerline is increased to 26 feet. To provide a full normal design using the Town's standards would require about 90 feet of width at the widest point. At the same point, the available right-of-way is 56.5 feet. Adjacent property owners refuse to allow the use of their property for temporary right-of-way for grading.
Yarger Engineering developed several alignments with full profiles and cross sections to show various options of addressing the design requirements with retaining walls and roadway barrier walls.
Maintenance of Traffic Design, I-65 at Memphis Road, Memphis, Clark County, IN
Paul Primavera and Associates designed a sewer system for Memphis Road. Yarger Engineering, Inc. designed the maintenance of traffic for the project. Because of the very tight nature of the Memphis Road, the sewer construction was phased in order to close sections of Memphis Road under and around I-65, while allowing most of the road to stay open.
