The ribbon has been ceremoniously cut on the improvements to Tuscaloosa’s Sokol Park North, where a combined $6.6 million in upgrades has led to better vehicular access, parking, lighting, and drainage.
TTL was honored to serve our corporate hometown in providing survey, civil design, geotechnical engineering, construction administration, and construction materials testing services for this series of enhancements that also improved drainage to keep the new amenities safe and dry.
“Improving safety and the quality-of-life for the communities we serve are hallmarks of the TTL mission,” said Frank Summers, PE, TTL vice president. “We were proud to do our part for a better Sokol Park.”
The improvements to the park came in two phases, with the first being new turn lanes to ease access into and out of the park.
Phase II, which was celebrated on Tuesday, included 283 additional paved parking spaces, new lighting, and a new traffic circle along with the drainage upgrades.
“I think it’s very, very important for the future,” said Tuscaloosa Councilman Norman Crow, who represents this area as part of District 3, of the park improvements.
Tuscaloosa’s mayor agreed.
“Not only have we made this great park better, we’ve made it safer,” Mayor Walt Maddox said. “You never succeed without a lot of people coming together to make a difference.”
