Parvin Road Renovation | Kansas City, Missouri
VSM Engineering was the design engineer for the secondary arterial street rehabilitation of Parvin Road from Skiles Avenue to Kentucky Street. The project included 3,600 LF of four-lane arterial with curb and gutter. VSM worked with a geotechnology firm to conduct testing of soil and subgrade to determine the reasons for existing roadway failure. Results revealed the existing subgrade and pavement section to be inadequate support for the current and proposed traffic. Several pavement design configurations were investigated to determine the optimum section based upon traffic and percentage of trucks utilizing the roadway. The existing roadway geometry and storm sewer were used.
