The Kirk Road project consisted of three lane sections, four lane sections with landscaped divided median, a signalized intersection, two roundabouts and a one hundred fifty feet long vehicular bridge. The roadways included both development of existing segments of roadways and new roadway alignments. The existing roadways were widened to meet new standards while keeping traffic functioning for local businesses. The new alignments were placed to best develop future sites for the owner to develop. The development consists of over two hundred acres including small and large parcels.
DCI worked with the private developer, the City of Little Rock, and local utility companies to connect six existing roadways. DCI worked with the City of Little Rock to review existing traffic and designed the new roadways to meet future traffic requirements as the sites get developed. DCI worked with the local utility companies to relocate and install new utility mains to provide connections for future developments. The roads were built to city or better standards and dedicated to the city upon completion.
The project was awarded the 2010 Public Works Project of the Year for its roundabout design by the Arkansas Chapter of the American Public Works Association.
