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.
