Lake Harbour Drive Extension
Waggoner Engineering provided route location and environmental assessment services to the City of Ridgeland.
Right of way and design phase services included topographic surveying and mapping, road, bridge, drainage, rail and roadway signalization, landscaping, lighting, and pedestrian elements, as well as property surveys and production of right-of-way acquisition maps.
The extension of Lake Harbour Drive will permit motorists to travel from U.S. 51, the current endpoint of Lake Harbour Drive, across the Illinois Central Railroad and over I-55 to the Highland Colony Parkway.
The large and complex project includes several steps, including an at-grade railroad crossing, culvert replacement, multiple utility relocations, connection to a state highway, and an interstate bridge.
