Project Details

Mishawaka High School’s current traffic circulation and parking conditions create a number of hazards, inefficiencies, and vehicle back-ups due to conflicts between parent drop-offs, public busses, student drivers, and pedestrians.

Abonmarche assisted the School with a new plan for the western portion of the campus that focused on enhancing student safety and improving the flow of vehicles. The new plan prioritizes the student experience by minimizing pedestrian vehicle conflicts. The new plan creates multiple drop-off/pick-up zones to intercept traffic from directions of origin, reduces congestion by spreading traffic across multiple access points, provides longer vehicular stacking lanes to reduce back-ups on roads, and safer, more efficient parking areas.

The design closes a portion of Wenger Avenue to create new ingress/egress to student parking and eliminate the need for students to cross a road when walking to the school’s entry from student parking. Pedestrian safety is also increased by separating walkways from vehicular drives, protecting access from drop-off/pick-up zones, and improved site lighting.
