DGR Engineering worked alongside the City of Sioux Center and Sioux Center Land Development to help secure Iowa DOT RISE funding. Following a topographical survey and preliminary design, DGR performed the boundary survey which included transferring new road right-of-way to the Iowa DOT.
The design and construction included evaluating the current and future growth trends of this portion of the City, such that sanitary sewer and water distribution system could be adequately sized to serve this development and future growth. The storm sewer design not only included the sizing of storm sewer pipe, intakes and stormwater detention basins, but also addressed an existing, undersized culvert beneath Highway 75. A phased traffic control plan was necessary to facilitate 2-way traffic on Highway 75 while a new culvert was being installed. DGR also worked with the businesses who relocated their operation along the highway frontage during the planning, design and construction phases to help the project best fit the end-user needs.
DGR performed the boundary and topographic surveying as well as the planning and site design of new Kids Club facility.
The project was a joint effort between Rock Rapids Kids Club, Mid-Sioux Opportunity, the City of Rock Rapids and Rock Rapids Municipal Utilities.
DGR worked with the project architect, the City of Rock Rapids, USDA-Rural Development, FEMA and the Iowa DNR to coordinate the site development within the Rock River flood plain.
The site design included designing the building pad and the main access to be above the 500-year floodplain, building service connections to municipal utilities, ADA access including the playground and handling of the site runoff to meet the Iowa Green Streets Criteria for stormwater treatment.
