Project Description
This project will construct a dedicated egress/exit lane to the south of the existing lanes at the current CERL security entrance off of Farber Drive. The existing exit (south) lane will be converted to a second entrance lane. The existing canopy structure will be relocated to straddle the two southernmost lanes. Existing infrastructure will be relocated or extended to fit the new layout. Infrastructure impacted includes but is not limited to pavement, curb and gutter, actuated security gates and security fencing, electrical supply lines and handholes, and all associated structural foundations. The existing guard house will be relocated onsite by the Contractor for disposal by the Owner. A new Owner-provided guard house shall be installed to fit the new configuation. Select portions of existing pavement and sidewalk adjacent to Farber Drive will be replaced. Drainage improvements, including storm sewers and linear stormwater detention areas will be added adjacent to the existing entrance. The project also includes new actuated barrier arms and associated foundations and electrical supply infrastructure. Additional stormwater detention is included as a Bid Alternate.

This project is located on the west side of Farber Drive, about 800 feet north of Interstate Drive in Champaign, Illinois.
