At Lake Hills Drive the study proposed a widening and a raised median to help safely accommodate the numerous accsess points along this segment of SH 35. Two alternates were designed that fullfilled the purpose and goals of the EA.
Photo-simulation was the medium chosen as the best way to communicate design concepts to the public and the Planner conducted a photo survey to collect base photographs. The two alternates were illustrated using the same view.
POITRA used traditional digital painting techniques to illustrate the proposed additional laneage and installation of sidewalks, medians and shfting signage. Removing trees in the path of the widening was the only digital painting challenge. The previous bridge and roadway design experience of the POITRA Visual principals helped to accurately fill in the details not present in the Planner's concepts.
The final photosimulation images were used to present the design to the public and in the EA document.
