Warren Bike Path
Warren, RI

Pare was retained by the Town of Warren to prepare construction documents for a multiuse path on an abandoned rail bed.  The project was funded by RIDOT but was administered by the Town.  RIDOT reviewed all submissions and provided final approval so that the project could be advertised for construction. 

Significant challenges on this project included stormwater management issues and horizontal and vertical alignment issues.  The property for the path had been out of use for many years and abutters had been discharging stormwater onto the property.  There was significant erosion along the path that required consideration when determining the horizontal and vertical alignment.   A timber bridge was designed at a stream crossing.  Street crossings at two roadways were designed with the safety of both path users and motorists in mind.
