Stantec-led team selected for $313m traffic and community enhancements project in US


A Stantec-led team has been selected by the City of Baton Rouge, Louisiana for the $312.6m traffic and community enhancements project in the city.

The Stantec-led team includes Sigma Consulting Group, MetroMorphosis, MarmillionGray, ECM Consultants, Manning Architects, Integrated Logistical Support, Alpha Media and Covalent Logic.

Under the contract, the team will be responsible for relieving traffic congestion, enhancing corridors, and increasing multi-modal mobility and safety.

The initiative is part of the city’s $1.1bn MOVEBR roads improvement programme, which consists of over 70 projects that are divided into two project phases.

The team’s work includes existing corridor improvements, community enhancement roadway projects, and parish-wide signalisation/synchronisation.

City of Baton Rouge assistant chief administrative officer and East Baton Rouge Parish Kelvin J. Hill said: “We are partnering with Stantec to help establish a framework for overall delivery of the program that guides cohesive, streamlined program implementation and minimizes the impact to local businesses, residents and commuters while delivering on the MOVEBR promise to deliver value to our tax payers, relieving congestion and improving the quality of life.”

As part of the contract, the team will develop improvements that enhance signalisation, vehicle congestion, drainage, and mobility of pedestrians, bicyclists, and mass transit riders while decorating the corridors.

The Stantec team will also use its experience in stormwater management and green infrastructure to include stormwater and subsurface drainage elements that help reduce repetitive flooding and improve water quality.

Furthermore, the team will conduct equipment and software updates to improve real-time traffic analysis of major corridors, provide real-time data, and enhance the reliability and control of traffic signals during day-to-day operations.

Stantec senior principal and project program director Michael Bruce said: “Our extensive experience designing resilient infrastructure using future-focused solutions allows our team to deliver advanced transportation enhancements that will streamline commutes, safely optimize all modes of mobility, and support the economic health of this community.”
