The crucial first step of a multi-step highway project, schematic designs lay the general foundation for the details that follow in later phases of the project. During the schematic design process, we identify and resolve any conflicts found in the relationship between drainage, structures, environmental elements, highway profiles, horizontal alignments, utilities and ramps. KSA designs the horizontal and vertical alignments for all major and minor roads. In an effort to blend the new project with the surrounding community, pedestrian accommodations, cycling paths, traffic patterns, landscape aesthetics and local businesses are studied to formulate the project’s basic framework. The development of the schematic design is an essential part of a successful highway project.
