Providing a solution for additional capacity and better traffic flow

Located in South Carolina, Clemson University has evolved over the years since its founding in 1889. A challenge facing the university today is increasing traffic safety issues on Perimeter Road in the heart of the campus. Offering our engineering expertise, we were selected as the owner’s engineer, also known as client’s engineer, for the first construction manager-at-risk roadway project to be executed by Clemson University through the Office of State Engineer—we’d be acting as the university’s agent during construction of a safer solution.

To separate vehicle traffic from cyclists and pedestrians in the heart of the campus where traffic is most concentrated, Perimeter Road will be widened. A 1.2-mile (almost 2 kilometre) stretch of road will be expanded from two lanes to a four-lane divided road to improve traffic flow. To further enhance bicycle and pedestrian safety along the corridor, a multi-use path is included along the north side of the road and will include lighting and emergency call boxes.

Following completion, Perimeter Road will be a four-lane facility for its entire 2.3 mile (3.7 kilometre) length, bringing the university and surrounding community additional traffic capacity, cyclist, and pedestrian safety—overall a safer campus along Perimeter Road.
