Cahaba Road Transportation Enhancement Project - Birmingham, AL


Veterans Construction is proud to be a part of the Sain Associate team for this 2016 ACEC Alabama Engineering Excellence Award Competition and State award.

This project started with a vision of providing pedestrian and bicycle accommodations along the corridor while enhancing and beautifying it. The Sain team was able to do this by reducing the pavement width (typically called a 'road diet') to add sidewalks and a bicycle accommodation, adding landscaping and lighting and maintain as much of the exciting tree canopy as possible.

We also improved the Zoo entrance to provide a grander gateway entry point.  This allowed pedestrian movement between the Gardens and Zoo.

The final product is a big improvement aesthetically. Joggers and pedestrians are enjoying wide sidewalks underneath a beautiful tree canopy, and thy can walk safety between Mountain Brook Village and English Village.  "This project connects two great partnership between the City of Birmingham, Friends of Birmingham Botanical Gardens and the Birmingham Zoo. Working closely together, we are continuing to make the City of Birmingham better for all at its residents and for all of our visitors." Mayor Bell of Birmingham - quoted by the Birmingham News.
