In recent years, the City of Muscatine has encouraged commercial development in the northeast section of the city. In preparation of the development, Snyder and Associates created a land use and infrastructure plan, which the city has implemented. Now, after city and private investment that resulted in parcels being developed, there is a desire to revisit the original land use and infrastructure plan. Students analyzed the plan against the actual development, and, where appropriate, enhanced the concepts contained in the plan. Tasks consisted of the traffic impact analysis around developments, planning and designing additional road connections that will further support growth, analyzing the design of proposed and existing intersections, designing and layout the location of sewer extensions, and investigating impacts on storm water management.
