The Regional Transportation Commission and the City of Sparks approached CFA to design and manage the reconstruction of Nichols Boulevard between Victorian Avenue and Howard Drive. Nichols Boulevard had been identified by the City of Sparks as the ideal connection corridor between public events areas located at the Sparks Marina and Victorian Avenue Plaza. The City of Sparks wanted to enhance pedestrian, bicycle and public transit facilities along Nichols Boulevard to create a contiguous passageway from the Marina to Victorian Avenue. CFA, in conjunction with Fehr & Peers Transportation Consultants and Black Eagle Geotechnical Engineers, prepared the preliminary design concepts for multi-modal transportation improvements along this important access corridor. CFA and our team provided surveying, transportation planning, soils engineering, materials testing, community outreach, preliminary and final civil design, landscape architecture, bidding assistance, construction management and inspection services for the public improvement project. The project was completed in November 2012.
