TOWN OF HILLSBOROUGH RIVERWALK

Hillsborough, N.C.

PROJECT DESCRIPTION

We were the prime consultant on the Town of Hillsborough’s Riverwalk, a collection of urban greenways along the historic Eno River that total 1.8 miles. The Riverwalk is popular for walking, jogging and cycling, and it provides pedestrian connections between local neighborhoods and downtown. The downtown portion of the Riverwalk is also the primary route of the NC Mountains-to-Sea Trail, the first section of the statewide trail system to be constructed in Orange County.

We were involved from the beginning till the end of Riverwalk’s construction. To develop the initial greenway routing and bridge crossing locations, our team performed site assessments, detailed surveys, flood plain analysis, and agency coordination. We also coordinated subconsultants for historical and archaeological assessments. As the project progressed with supplemental contracts, we provided detailed engineering design including greenway trail design, hydraulic design, CLOMR/LOMR, and structure design to develop full construction plans, prepare bid packages, and administer the public bid processes for the resulting two construction projects.

During construction, we also provided daily inspection and testing services and construction management through project completion. Our ingenuity to utilize a top down construction method saved the town $30,000, shortened construction time by three months, and preserved mature, native trees. Riverwalk is now open and draws newcomer and resident alike to downtown Hillsborough.

The City of Creedmoor selected us to provide site design, construction administration, materials testing and inspection, architecture, structural engineering and surveying services for improvements to Lake Rogers Park.
