Sauerkraut Lane Extension

Barry Isett & Associates, Inc. (Isett) was contracted by the developer of the industrial park to provide engineering design, permitting, and surveying services in the 5,000 linear foot (LF) extension of a municipal road to connect two state roads in a project to ease transit across Lower Macungie Township and provide alternate routes for traffic generated by an industrial park.

In addition to providing roadway design and permitting, the project involves coordination with Norfolk Southern Railroad concerning a new at-grade crossing along the proposed route and the closure of two nearby at-grade crossings, as well as the design and construction of a public water line extension 2,900 LF of 12’ Ductile Iron Water Main. The water line continuation requires a 75’ bore of 12” Ductile Iron Pipe (DIP) in 24” steel under the Norfolk Southern Railway line. A bike path will be constructed on the north side and a sidewalk along the south side of the roadway extension.

The project required extensive coordination between multiple stakeholders including the public water authority, PennDOT, Lower Macungie Township, and multiple property owners. The design of the project also included the coordination with three other Engineering firms that were working on projects adjacent to the proposed roadway.
