City of Schofield, WI
Maryland Avenue and Radtke Street are intersecting local residential streets located on the northwest side of the City of Schofield, west of Business US51/Grand Avenue. The two streets intersect and were combined for a construction project because both were showing deteriorated pavement with older utilities. Becher Hoppe was contracted by the City of Schofield to provide design engineering services for this project, including alternatives analysis, and preliminary design through final design. Total construction cost was $1.5 million. Maryland Ave had urban cross sections with curb and gutter prior to construction. This project implemented a rural cross section with swales which promoted infiltration and reduced project cost by requiring less concrete.
