Loretto Borough, Cambria County
This multi-phase revitalization project began with the replacement of Borough water and wastewater lines. Phase II, a streetscape project along Saint Mary Street, included design of a half mile of sidewalks, curbing, ADA compliant curb ramps, and driveways. Phase III was the planting of 40 street trees and Phase IV consisted of installing 41 lamp posts which match the original lamp posts on the Charles Schwab Estate.
The streetscape project was designed to maintain the rich historic aesthetic of the town which includes the beautiful Charles Schwab Estate (located at the end of Saint Mary Street) and Saint Francis University.
We have worked with Keller Engineers for structural and civil engineering support on six projects over the past five years and have been very pleased with the results. Our projects tend to be complicated phased renovation/ addition projects calling for creativity in planning and construction. I have been particularity pleased with their responsiveness to issues that arise during construction which is of particular importance to us and our clients. Vern L.
