TYLI The Falmouth office of TY Lin International provides professional traffic and civil engineering services including streetscapes, site design, water and wastewater, roadway and parking. TYLI’s Falmouth office employs 45 people and has been providing engineering services to a variety of clients and MaineDOT for over 30 years. The office has worked on over 100 local projects over the years. These include large MaineDOT projects such as the Caribou Connector and the award winning Veterans Memorial Bridge connecting Portland and South Portland, as well as numerous roadway, pedestrian/bicycle, and small transportation projects in other communities throughout Maine. TY Lin provides services on all phases of project development and delivery, including planning, design, construction support and inspection, construction engineering, and program management. The Falmouth staff has designed a wide variety of site developments including municipal and private parking lots, bicycle and pedestrian trails, roadways, sidewalk improvements, boardwalks and pedestrian bridges, retaining walls, and vehicular bridges. PROJECT COORDINATION Design is an iterative process. The urban realm that defines Congress Square will require careful considerations of circulation patterns (both pedestrian and vehicular), City ordinances and policies, community program requirements, abutting land uses, utility infrastructure, and a host of other factors. These multi disciplinary challenges inherent in urban design demand a collaborative approach in which each discipline understands and respects the scope, expertise and responsibility of not only their fellow design professionals but of their client. Project coordination will start on Day One, with a review of prior design work and other materials to be provided, and a thorough discussion and evaluation of the community vision and design program. City Staff will be key players in the coordination effort by providing information and insight into the site’s physical and social characteristics. All team members are very familiar with the communication and coordination efforts required for a project of this size and complexity. Team coordination will be facilitated by TJD&A through weekly conference calls and teleconferences, electronic data exchanges, and regular updates. COMMUNITY INVOLVEMENT The success of any urban design project lies directly in the hands of the community it will serve. Congress Square has many stakeholders who will need to be brought into the discussion about the future of this focused space, including: • • • • • • •
City of Portland (owner, funding, and maintenance) Maine Department of Transportation (roadway design) Friends of Congress Square Park (programming, public outreach) Portland Public Art Committee (funding, approval, and curating public art installation) Land Bank Commission (compliance with Land Bank Ordinance) Parks Commissions (project review) Portland Museum of Art, Children’s Museum (major institutional uses on the Square)

• • • •
Westin Harborview Hotel (historic landmark with entry on the Square) Local residents in Parkside and nearby senior housing Other businesses (H. H. Hay Building, State Theater, Schwartz Building) Maine College of Art students, tourists, shoppers, and other visitors to the City.
We will be starting with a defined community vision and a program for the Square. Understanding the environmental, social, and historical significance of the site and its context will be a key step in ensuring that the resulting design will be amenable to all parties involved. Obtaining consensus on a final design will involve interpreting the vision and program in a way that respects the opinions and requirements of all stakeholders and the community at large. All members of the team have completed urban design and traffic movement projects that have had substantial community involvement. This experience will be brought to bear on Congress Square. Even though we may not participate in many of the community engagement meetings, we will provide the City with graphic tools (analysis diagrams, existing conditions photographs, rendered site plans, cross sections, perspective sketches, photographs of similar projects and details) and a narrative to be used in public presentations, press releases, and the City’s website. Example of our work Include site plans that were developed for public input into the design of the Bayside Trail in Portland, and a series of renderings that OLIN completed for a successful fundraising effort for the 11th Street Bridge project in Washington DC. COORDINATION WITH ENVIRONMENTAL ARTISTS As a five year member of the Portland Public Arts Committee, Terry DeWan brings an insider’s perspective on the inner workings of the PPAC, the artist selection process, and, more importantly, the role that public art can play in the redesign of Congress Square. OLIN has a vibrant history of collaborating with environmental artists. In addition to designing sculpture gardens for the National Sculpture Garden, Philadelphia and Toledo Museums of Art, their collaboration with artists includes: Janet Echelman, Roxy Paine, Jenny Holzer, Ellsworth Kelly and Spencer Finch. They have also designed and implemented Sol LeWitt’s conceptual work of environmental art: Lines in Four Directions in Flowers, a site specific work at the foot of the Philadelphia Museum of Art. Landscape architects can play a significant role in the development of site specific public art installations that engage and animate the public realm. We are very excited about the possibilities expressed in the Goals statement for the public art, recognizing its potential to create energy and transform the space with its presence. An example of exceptional transformation can be seen at Dilworth Park, at Philadelphia’s City Hall, where OLIN has been working with Janet Echelman on Pulse. When completed, the artwork will trace the paths and movement of the subway lines below with illuminated curtains of atomized water. A short video of the proposed installation can be viewed at: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZFaP FQpSYU

STATE HOUSE COMMONS Augusta, Maine TJD&A transformed an under-utilized lawn area between the State House and the State Museum into an urban plaza featuring a rich palette of plantings, a sculptural water feature, shade trees, and textured paving. The space was planned sunny place for lunchtime activities, and a gathering point for school groups. BUDGET: $200,000 “The State House Common stands as a testament to Maine craftsmanship and work ethic. I am impressed with the work that you and your design team undertook, as well as your commitment to quality and timeliness in completing the project.” - Governor John E. Baldacci
BAYSIDE PROMENADE TRAIL Portland, Maine TJD&A was the lead designer for the Bayside Trail, an urban greenway that connects businesses and neighborhoods in Portland’s Bayside District. The trail runs on an abandoned railroad ROW from the terminus of the Eastern Promenade Trail southwest to Elm Street. Eventually the Trail will connect to Deering Oaks. The project is a public-private partnership between MaineDOT, the City of Portland, the Trust for Public Land, and Portland Trails. BUDGET: $1.5 Million
DILWORTH PARK PHILADELPHIA, PA / 2006–2014 OLIN’s renovation of Dilworth Park in the heart of Philadelphia has created an engaging and multi-functional public commons and transit hub at the foot of the city’s historic City Hall. A pair of glass pavilions provide monumental gateways to the subway station below the park. The fountain jets, flush with surrounding paving, keep the plaza cool and provide visual interest during the day, but can be turned off to open up the plaza for events. In wintertime the fountain serves as an ice rink. Integrated into the fountain is artist Janet Echleman’s Pulse, with changing colored ribbons of atomized fog triggered by the movement of transit below the park. A low lawn panel provides an opportunity for passive recreation and sunny seating areas. Lunch crowds are accommodated by a café with casual, movable tables and chairs for 100 patrons. Cost: Total Construction, $55 Million

SIMON AND HELEN DIRECTOR PARK PORTLAND, OR / 2006–2009 Formerly a parking lot the size of a city block, Simon and Helen Director Park now offers Portland a significant new urban plaza. The park, built entirely over structure, has created public spaces with a range of microclimates, amenities, and activities, and has quickly become a unique destination and landmark for residents and visitors. A signature element is a glass and wood canopy accessible from the adjacent sidewalk and sitting high along the street’s edge, offering views over the park. A water element with arching jets and a semi-circular basin creates a comfortable environment for pedestrians and reinforces the architectural massing of the site by addressing the street edge. Other elements include loose café seating with WiFi, permanent stone and wood benches, street trees, custom lighting and a kiosk café. Both the stonepaved surfaces and glass canopy incorporate innovative stormwater techniques to capture and reuse runoff on-site. Cost: $5.5 Million

COLUMBUS CIRCLE NEW YORK, NY / 2001–2005 OLIN’s redesign of Columbus Circle is based on concentric rings of movement and light, to elicit the feeling that the circle is not only the center of the city, but the center of the universe. Today, people stop, meet and relax in the hub of a swirl of traffic late into the evening. The fountain is formed by a series of concentric ledges with cascad-ing water and jets arching toward the center to reinforce the circular design and primacy of the monument, mask traffic noise, and temper the summer climate. When turned off, the concentric ledges serve as seating to avoid the typically forlorn character of unused fountains during winter months. Customdesigned benches are scaled to complement the civic space, and are wide enough to allow individuals to sit comfortably back-to-back. Columbus Circle demonstrates the potential of reclaiming social space in conjunction with rethinking transportation infrastructure. The redesign devotes less area to vehicles, yet traffic now flows more efficiently. Disciplining traffic as part of transportation planning, and successfully balancing it with social needs is a difficult task, but one that is successfully addressed at Columbus Circle and can serve as a model for other cities. Cost: Total Construction, $24 Million

RODIN MUSEUM PHILADELPHIA, PA / 2004-2011 OLIN rejuvenated the garden landscape surrounding the Rodin Museum, home of the largest collection of the artist’s works in the world. The landscape enhances the original 1928 plans for the garden by architects Paul Cret and Jacques Gréber, restoring components of the original design while creating contemporary spaces for museum visitors and social events. The design restores the symmetry of the formal French plan and reunifies the entire city block as a public garden befitting the cultural corridor of the Benjamin Franklin Parkway often referred to as “Museum Mile.” The revitalization of the Rodin Museum was an essential component of a framework plan for the Benjamin Franklin Parkway completed by OLIN in 2003. OLIN’s design solutions include the preservation of original walls and structures within the garden and the incorporation of new architectural elements and durable paving. The installation of new paths and ramps at specific, discrete locations allow visitors full access to the gardens and grounds. The new planting plan features many plantings specified in the historical 1928 plans while introducing new native species. The plan for the grounds outside the formal gardens provides sweeping pathways and lawns among groves of London Planes, while a free-standing stone entrance gate—a replica of the entry at Rodin’s 18th-century country estate—is a grand introduction to the museum from the Benjamin Franklin Parkway.

11TH STREET BRIDGE PARK WASHINGTON, DC / 2014 OLIN’s winning design for the 11th Street Bridge Park Competition connects two historically disparate sides of the Anacostia River with a series of rooms and active zones, including two sloped ramps that elevate visitors to maximized look-out points to landmarks in either direction. Each ramp terminates in a waterfall that visually reconnects the ramps to the river below. In addition to demonstrating how plants cleanse captured rainwater, the waterfalls above the bridge deck provide cooling breezes and a calming sound. The waterfall below the structure collects surface river water and drops it back into the river, emphasizing the need for river aeration and higher oxygen levels. To encourage visitors to the bridge and neighboring communities, the design includes amenities for comfort and refreshment and an open plaza for markets, festivals and theatrical performances. The form of the bridge creates an iconic encounter, an “X” instantly recognizable as the river’s new image. Cost: $40 Million (Estimated)

State and High Street Two Way Conversion Study Portland, Maine
TYLI provided with technical assistance in the evaluation of converting State and High Streets to two way streets between I 295 and Commercial Street. The results of a traffic simulation analysis following the conversion to two way flow indicates that from a traffic flow perspective the change is feasible and preliminary engineering analyses should be conducted. The feasibility study detailed level of service, required intersection adjustments as it relates to geometry or turn prohibitions, on street parking impacts, and a large vehicle intersection turn analysis. The study was recently adopted by the City Council for further consideration. Design Fee: $150K Client Contact: Bruce Hyman Portland Bicycle & Pedestrian Program Coordinator (207) 874 8833

Park Avenue and St. John Street Traffic and Pedestrian Improvements Portland, Maine
TYLI provided preliminary and final design services to MaineDOT for traffic and pedestrian improvements along Park Ave. from Deering Ave. to St. John St., and along St. John St. from Park Ave. to Congress St. The scope involved a “road diet” that converted the existing 4 lane sections to 3 lanes – one travel lane in each direction with a center two way left turn lane. Improvements included ADA compliant ramps, pedestrian signals, curb bump outs to improve safety, and traffic signal improvements. A proposed section consisting of two 11 foot travel lanes, a 12 foot center lane, and 6 foot bicycle lanes was presented. In support of concerns raised by MaineDOT at the Congress Street end of the project, a detailed SimTraffic simulation analysis was conducted to compare before and after traffic conditions.

Veterans Memorial Bridge Portland and South Portland, Maine
MaineDOT selected TYLI and Reed & Reed for this design build project. TYLI was responsible for the 1610 foot bridge and roadway design, traffic analysis, utility coordination, right of way mapping and negotiation/acquisition, and maintenance of traffic design for this multiple award winning structure. TYLI was responsible for the design ties into the adjacent Fore River Parkway in a manner that eliminates one of the approaches of a congested 4 way intersection on the Portland side of the bridge. In support of this design alignment, detailed traffic simulation models were developed to display traffic performance. Ultimately the SimTraffic model proved that traffic flow would improve with this innovative roadway concept. A Context Sensitive Solutions process was used to finalize elements of the aesthetic treatments and plan the details of the service memorials that are incorporated along the multi use path on the bridge as a tribute to Maine’s veterans. A key part of the project from a traffic operations perspective was the design of traffic signals at four closely spaced intersections.

SELECTED PROJECT EXPERIENCE The Cliff House Resort & Spa, Cape Neddick, ME. A complete redesign for new Ownership, Rockbridge Capital. Design work included: pools, gardens, plazas, trails, fire pits and a cliff walk. TJDA provided design, permitting, construction documentation, and construction administration. Renovation began December of 2015. My role on the team was to manage the construction documentation and construction administration. Smale Riverfront Park, Cincinnati OH* Smale Riverfront Park is a central component of the city’s re-development campaign including seen construction phases and multiple program components. David was responsible for construction documentation and then management of the consultant team including structural, civil, architecture, fountain design, soils scientists, lighting
and specifications. He visited the site every two to three weeks throughout 2011 and 2012 to perform CA services. The project was located in an active floodplain which necessitated national, regional and state permitting processes. Detroit Tech Town.* The Living Room transforms a parking lot into an active and dynamic public space. David served as Project Manager and LA working directly with contractors and fabricators during Design Development. Cedar Rapids – 10th Street Streetscape, Cedar Rapids, IA.* Resulting from a master plan that Sasaki produced after a devastating flood in 2008, this four-block streetscape was the first in a twophase construction effort that pushed for innovative stormwater management solutions and updated the city’s design standards. Charlotte Light Rail Transit, Charlotte NC.* Working on construction documents for 12 individual transit stops along the Northeast Corridor, including coordination with a local artist to integrate custom paving designs at each station. Port of Los Angeles, Wilmington Waterfront Park; Los Angeles.* This 30 acre award winning park opened in to the public in the Spring of 2011. I was brought on to the design team during design development to move from DD into construction documentation. The entire site was built on a brownfield along a working waterfront, which until this project opened, had completely cut off the local community from its beloved ocean views. Loyola College Intercollegiate Athletic Complex; Baltimore, MD.* Loyola College of Maryland already had a solid athletics program but wanted to build a state of the art athletic complex that would propel their program to the top in Division 1 Lacrosse. They didn’t have enough space on their existing campus to build and ended up purchasing a nearby landfill for the project. Sasaki was hired to make this project a reality and it opened in the Spring of 2010. Along with producing construction documents my role also included production of graphics that would illustrate the complexities of building a playfield on a capped landfill. *denotes projects completed while at Sasaki Associates
