The existing brick pavement was rough and uneven along the existing street in Pratt, Kansas causing a problem for highway traffic. City of Pratt staff and EBH engineers partnered to find the city a solution. The two center driving lanes were replaced with concrete pavement over a fly ash base with striping, while the existing parking lanes on the outside remained brick. ADA sidewalk ramps were also constructed throughout the project.

Project Details

Our team helped the City of Pratt:

  • Apply for and receive KDOT Geometric Improvement Grant
  • Survey and design project in accordance with KDOT standard plans
  • Provide KDOT construction observation of project

The contractor constructed the new concrete driving lanes where they were smooth, but it was challenging to connect the uneven brick at the edges. Traffic control was also an issue but was quickly communicated with citizens. This plan allowed existing highway traffic to move to the sides and residential driveway access to the highway during construction.
