Alabama State University Hall Street Streetscape
Status: Completed 2010
GMC worked with Alabama State University to provide geotechnical services for the new Hall Street Entrance onto the campus. This entryway will tie together the east side (New Campus) and west side (Old Campus) along the north-south roadway through the University. It will establish north and south gateways to the campus with landscaping, guard houses and signage. The project will provide pedestrian enhancements to ensure a safe environment, as well as visibility for the campus from Interstate 85. Geotechnical exploration consisted of evaluating the shallow subsurface conditions by using Dynamic Cone Penetrometer (DCP) at various locations. Recommendations included site preparation, foundations, slabs and drainage considerations.
