Aldo Street Improvements
Klingner & Associates provided professional services to the City of Quincy to evaluate and develop infrastructure improvements for Aldo Boulevard from South 21st Street to South 24th Street (IL Route 96).
The existing roadway consists of two fifteen foot (15’) wide curbed asphalt lanes separated by a twenty foot (20’) landscaped boulevard in an established single family neighborhood.
The objective of this project is to specifically address the problems of on-street parking, protection of the boulevard, and poor storm water drainage while maintaining the unique residential qualities of the street.
Klingner & Associates initially provided the City with three options for improving the street including renderings and cost estimates. The options were brick paver widening, stamped concrete widening, and selective pavement widening.
Klingner & Associates prepared construction plans and specifications for the street improvements and acquiring permits from the Illinois Department of Transportation. The infrastructure improvements consisted of new curb and gutter, bituminous pavement 18’ wide, storm sewer modifications, driveway aprons, sidewalks and other miscellaneous appurtenances. Bid alternatives included the interior pavement band and storm sewer inlet at 22nd and Aldo Blvd. Completed in 2012 at a construction cost of $223,546.00.
