McMahon, as the lead consultant, completed the final design and preparation of the construction plans and specifications for this $700,000 roadway reconstruction project, which was funded by New Garden Township and the Kennett Consolidated School District. The scope of improvements along this PennDOT collector road included 700 feet of pavement reconstruction in order to lower the vertical crest and increase sight distance. The sight distance improvements enhanced safety at the nearby intersection of West Baltimore Pike and Bancroft Road to allow for the future installation of a traffic signal. The project included the relocation of a residential driveway, underpinning of a historic stone retaining wall and multiple utility relocations including gas, water and electric. Construction began in May 2011 and was completed in August 2011 so as not to interfere with the school year. An accelerated construction sequence limited a traffic detour to four weeks during the month of July. In order to maintain access to a local trucking facility, a temporary access driveway was utilized and a radius/ shoulder upgrade was designed on a local road along the detour route. The project was completed on time and on budget despite several intensive rain events towards the end of the summer.
