146th Street - Pedestrian ADA Ramp and Sidewalk Improvement Project Hamilton County, Indiana
This transportation enhancement project included sidewalk, trail, and ADA ramp enhancements from Springmill Road in Carmel to Harrison Parkway in Fishers. Services provided by First Group Engineering included survey, design, utility coordination, and construction supervision.

These requirements go above and beyond existing INDOT design guidelines, and as a result INDOT has started to follow PROWAG instead of their own design criteria during review of these types of projects. Other design features of this project include ADA accessible pedestrian push buttons, auditory pedestrian signal push buttons, trail reconstruction, sidewalk reconstruction, pedestrian signs and pavement markings. The design laid-out spot grades for landing areas, running grades for longitudinal slopes, and cross slopes to ensure PROWAG criteria were met.
