The TCARP Natural Gas Pipeline Construction Survey spanned 23 miles of pipeline that was constructed to increase the reliability of the natural gas supply system serving more than 51,000 customers in northwest Michigan. From preliminary route surveying to construction staking to as-built surveying, Wade Trim thoroughly documented the existing conditions of the pipeline corridor, supported construction activities, and collected extensive pipeline attributes and as-built data to support the DTE Energy pipeline’s long-term safety and integrity.
The First and Ashley Two-Way Conversion and Bikeway project implemented one of Michigan’s first protected bikeways and restored two-way operations on an existing one-way road through downtown Ann Arbor. In addition, a century-old water system was rehabilitated and stormwater infiltration systems installed through a congested site. Wade Trim and SmithGroup teamed to deliver these improvements that demonstrate how streets can prioritize pedestrian safety, provide capacity for vehicular traffic, balance the needs of multiple users, and integrate sustainable engineering practices.
