The City of North Ridgeville faced a transportation challenge in a key area surrounding the North Ridgeville Academic Center and one of the city’s fire departments. To address traffic flow, safety concerns, and transportation interaction between the two facilities and the surrounding community, the city sought to extend Ranger Way as well as make improvements to two intersecting roads. PRIME AE provided construction administration, construction inspection, and materials testing for the Ranger Way extension.
The new Ranger Way consisted of new concrete pavement including concrete curb and gutter, asphalt tie-ins to connecting streets, lighting, drainage, multi-purpose trail, traffic signal, and more. The city extended Ranger Way from the northern driveway of the North Ridgeville Academic Center to Bainbridge Road, as well as realigning part of Kensington Drive and the Academic Center’s main campus drive. A portion of Bainbridge Road was widened to allow for left turn lanes to the new Ranger Way. In addition, our team helped the city navigate an embankment dispute, limiting the city’s exposure to a soil shortage claim.
PRIME AE coordinated extensively with the adjacent North Ridgeville High School to make sure the roadway was reopened before school resumed. The project was completed on time and on budget, supporting the essential civic facilities in the area with a seamless, safe traffic solution.
