Corporate, Engineering + InfrastructureSep 06, 2019

American Structurepoint joined with the Indianapolis community Tuesday morning celebrating a major step forward for mass transit. City and community leaders cut the ribbon Tuesday on IndyGo’s Red Line Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) Line that runs 13 miles from Broad Ripple through downtown Indianapolis to the University of Indianapolis.

American Structurepoint provided multiple engineering consulting services for the Red Line. As a subconsultant to CDM Smith, American Structurepoint provided roadway design services for the line’s southern half from University of Indianapolis to 18th Street. Our Traffic Group provided traffic capacity analysis, simulation modeling and design of construction and bid plans for 50+ traffic signal modifications along the BRT line, while our Road Group provided design for roadway, pedestrian, and drainage improvements along the corridor. We also provided land surveying services for the entire 13-mile route.

“American Structurepoint is proud and honored to have played a role developing the city’s first-ever BRT system,” said American Structurepoint Project Development Director Eric Farny, who served as project manager for the firm’s design services. “The Red Line represents an important milestone in bringing better, faster public transit options to Indianapolis.”

Red Line service runs every 10 to 15 minutes, with buses stopping at designated stations generally one-fourth to one-half mile apart. Rides on the Red Line are free throughout all of September
