Marquette Hospital Transportation Improvements – Design Phase Services

Marquette, Michigan

DLZ provided comprehensive studies and design services to the City of Marquette, Michigan for the relocation of Marquette’s regional hospital. Services were performed to comply with MDOT requirements since the project involved major work on US-41 and an MDOT right-of-way permit.

The tasks performed included traffic studies, alternatives analysis, preparation of an Environmental Assessment, topographic and hydraulic survey, geotechnical engineering, utility relocation and design, roadway design for three roundabouts, traffic signal design, drainage design, complex hydraulic analysis, structural design, lighting design, design of non-motorized facilities, and construction cost estimates. In addition, DLZ’s work included preparation of front-end documents and specifications, preparation of property descriptions/plat, extensive public and stakeholder coordination/outreach, coordination with MDOT/FHWA regarding break in limited access ROW, environmental permits, MDOT ROW permit, MOT design, and preparation of TMP and mobility analysis.

Studies and design were completed under an extremely aggressive timeline so that transportation facilities would be constructed in time for the opening of the new hospital.
