Nifong Boulevard Improvements
This roadway widening project will add two additional through lanes, bike lanes, sidewalks, and improve the intersections along Nifong between Providence and Willowcreek, and along Forum between Nifong and Green Meadows. The ESS team will work collaboratively with the developer constructing two new streets adjacent to the project – Aurora Drive and Nova Way – to install traffic signals at the new intersection of Nifong and Aurora Drive. Widening the Nifong Corridor will aid in eliminating traffic congestion and help the traveling public reach their destinations on the ever expanding southwest quadrant of Columbia. ESS continues to work hand-in-glove with the design team to modify various scopes of work to provide the best value to the Columbia community.

Scope of Work
This project will benefit from our skilled local workforce. Our surveying, QC testing, support crew services, underground utility, paving and hand pour crews will all play a part in this project’s success. The team plans to utilize small dozers, skid loaders and compactors to perform the linear grading needed for the widening of the project while conventional pipe crews consisting of trackhoes and loaders will install the storm sewer infrastructure. The paving team will also utilize a variable-width concrete paver to efficiently complete a number of diverse concrete widening sections throughout the corridor.
