CMT was retained by the county to plan and design the relocation of a portion of Election House Road to remove the roadway from the county airport’s Runway Safety Area and Runway Protection Zone, and realign Election House Road to be consistent with the county’s Thoroughfare Plan. The project included approximately 3,800 feet of new two-lane rural roadway constructed to the county’s standards. CMT completed the preliminary planning/alignments development, environmental clearance, property acquisition for R.O.W., and construction plans. The project involved extensive coordination with the county’s Regional Planning Commission, County Engineer’s Office, City of Lancaster, Soil and Water, Airport, FAA, three pipeline companies and adjacent property owners.
CMT was successful in delivering a high level of services, resulting in a complete and on-time project and within pre-established budgets of FAA eligibility and funding. Strong communication and cooperation with a variety of bodies, competing interests and timeline demands is what delivered this project as a win-win for all involved.
