City of Richardson, Melrose Drive and Meadow View Court, Richardson, Texas

CRIADO is responsible for the street rehabilitation of 6,350 linear feet of Melrose drive, a four-lane undivided collector thoroughfare, and 300 linear feet of meadow view court, a residential cul-de-sac. Major project components included milling and overlaying of the existing 2-inch hot mix asphalt surface, a 170-acres sub-watershed drainage analysis contributing to the different existing underground piping systems of Melrose drive, drainage improvements with new stormwater trunks, manholes, curb inlets, lateral, and creek outfalls at cottonwood, west fork cottonwood and mimosa branch. Three new stormwater trunks were designed to relieve flooding problems along Melrose drive. A new 300-foot long right turn lane was designed at Melrose drive and Coit road to improve general traffic movement, and specifically J.J. Pearce High School bus access. New intersection improvements also include the design of a dedicated left turn lane for Melrose drive at Coit road. This project also includes the complete demolition and reconstruction of meadow view court, including the installation of a 6-inch waterline, driveways, curb inlet top, and barrier free ramps for improved pedestrian accessibility. Criado performed survey services, including field work, processing and easement preparation as required to prepare construction plans and easement documentation.
