Project Overview

Indianapolis Airport Engineering

INDIANAPOLIS, IN-This project consisted of the reconstruction of a portion of the West Perimeter Road (WPR) to provide a grade separation with the new Entry/Exit Road. The design of the associated overpass bridge structure was by others, in coordination with this project.

Project Details

The typical section for the WPR consisted of 2-12 ft lanes (one in each direction) separated by a 16 ft flush median, 8 ft paved outside shoulders, 6:1 side slopes to the clear zone and 3:1 side slopes beyond the clear zone.
