SEPI was retained by the Town of Louisburg to provide design services and environmental review for proposed sidewalk improvements on S. Main Street (SR 1229). The Town received federal funding for the project under the Congestion Mitigation and Air Quality Improvement (CMAQ) program (Project C-5527). The project included the design of an approximately 3,400-foot pedestrian sidewalk extension, which will connect existing sidewalks in the area, linking the commercial districts, downtown Louisburg and Louisburg College.
In addition, the extension provides a direct connection to the Louisburg Bike/Pedestrian greenway. This project provides significantly safer pedestrian access for residents, visitors and students in the area. SEPI’s responsibilities included project management, roadway/civil design, utility coordination, permitting, construction cost estimates, surveying, wetland and stream delineations, threatened and endangered species habitat assessment, preparation of a Categorical Exclusion, and traffic management plans.
