Iroquois Drive is a major road on campus which provides access to 16 campus buildings and 8 parking lots. It includes two of the 4 entrances to the campus and along with Rockwell Road, Grant Street and Elmwood Avenue, comprises the campus "loop" road. The road is 22' wide with one lane in each direction with traffic signals at either end. The road was constructed long ago and this light duty construction has proven inadequate for the traffic it sees.
Concrete curbing has crumbled in many locations, pavement has settled and spot repairs are no longer cost-effective. Additionally, storm water manholes have deteriorated, conduits for site lighting are corroded and the concrete retaining wall has severely spalled, exposing reinforcing steel. Sidewalks along the road are discontinuous, forcing pedestrians into the roadway in precarious locations near blind curves.
This projects will reconstruct the roadway, curbs and underground drainage along its entire length and repair of the concrete retaining wall along a portion of the north side. Improvements will include new site lighting, storm water retention and treatment, a proposed continuous sidewalk, high visibility crosswalks, sharrows for bicycles and improvements to the green area on the north side of the Moore Complex.
The campus will be working closely with the DOT 198 reconstruction project to help enhance the proposed campus connection to Delaware Park pathways and at grade crossing of the 198 with bridge over Scajaquada Creek to the bike path on the north side of the Creek.
