Mount Aloysius College, Cambria County
This safety improvement project enhanced the safety for those walking or biking to and from the Cresson area to the college campus. Prior to this project, there was no safe access from the college campus to downtown Cresson.
The new ADA compliant sidewalk runs adjacent to the southern side of Admiral Peary Highway (Route 22) from the college to the existing sidewalk at the Norfolk Southern Railroad overpass.
Some of the challenges of this project included: Coordination with the multiple businesses along this stretch of Admiral Peary Highway and limited ROW width required design to reduce the extra wide shoulder which narrowed the total roadway width in this section of SR 22. This solution also eliminated the need to lengthen a culvert crossing which also eliminated the need for a permit.
Penn Cambria School District has collaborated the last 4 years with the Keller Engineer’s team to complete a multi-phased paving and drainage project on our HS campus. I have personally worked with Adam Long, Brian Smith and Shawn Ritchey throughout the entire project and they made Penn Cambria feel like we were their only client. The personal attention to our needs and specific details of this project were second to none. The communication aspect of the Keller Engineer Team was outstanding. We trust their process, their design and their commitment to a quality project that when completed, we are all very proud of. Bill Marshall, Superintendent Penn Cambria School District
