PITTSBURGH, PA – Larson Design Group (LDG), an award-winning, employee-owned national architecture, engineering, and consulting firm, is proud to be a recipient of the Roadway Transportation Project of the Year at the Pittsburgh chapter of the March of Dimes Annual Transportation, Building & Construction Awards.

LDG provided preliminary engineering, final design, and construction consultation services for operational improvements to the McLaughlin Run Road/McMillan Road intersection in Upper St. Clair Township, Allegheny County, which experienced significant congestion, especially during peak hours.

“LDG’s Transportation team is honored to accept this award from such a respected and generous organization as the March of Dimes,” said Joe Romano, LDG Vice President of Transportation. “It was a privilege to have led this critical safety improvement project and provide a long-term solution for the community.”

Based on current conditions and future traffic projections, LDG developed several alternatives which varied from a signalized intersection with designated turn lanes to a dual lane roundabout. Because the roundabout provided the best value to PennDOT and minimized impacts to the surroundings, while providing the best future levels of service for all traffic movements, PennDOT directed LDG to advance the roundabout option into the preliminary engineering phase of the agreement.
