FM 2818 (Harvey Mitchell Parkway) Schematic Design

City of College Station/TxDOT | College Station, Texas

Binkley & Barfield | DCCM developed a geometric design schematic for FM 2818 from Wellborn Road to George Bush Drive. The project scope included conceptual and schematic design as well as data collection, accident and traffic analysis, conceptual design, schematic design, environmental documentation, public involvement, ROW/easement identification, utility coordination, project management, and topographic surveying. The initial scope included the analysis of three design year alternatives, a conceptual schematic for each design year alternative, and the development of the selected alternative through schematic design.

Based on the results of the traffic analysis/conceptual design and meetings with the City of College Station and TxDOT staff, it was determined the three design year alternatives would not adequately address the growth issues along the project corridor, thus six additional alternatives were analyzed. Based on the traffic analysis and input from the City and TxDOT, a “super street” option was selected and was developed through schematic design.

The limits of the schematic design were also revised to include the area north of the original project limits, to include FM 2818 from George Bush Drive to F&B Road.

Through an on-call contract with TxDOT, Binkley & Barfield | DCCM was also selected in 2018 to perform the detailed PS&E design for FM 2818. Binkley & Barfield completed SUE for the corridor to assist with utility conflict identification and resolution. Binkley & Barfield developed designs for the project roadway geometry utilizing Bentley OpenRoads 3D modeling software and prepared and updated the construction cost estimate and specifications for the project. Additionally, Binkley & Barfield | DCCM is managed and provided QA/QC for a team of eight subconsultants that gathered survey and performed geotechnical analyses as well as preparing PS&E for TCPs, drainage, signals, illumination, pavement markings, and other activities associated with delivering a full PS&E package. Binkley & Barfield | DCCM also assisted TxDOT in coordinating with project stakeholders such as the City of College Station, Texas A&M University, and Easterwood Airport.
