Olympia Parkway Improvements
M&S Engineering provided design, construction documents, bid and construction phase services for this roadway improvement project.
The project area consisted of Olympia Parkway from IH 35 to the Universal City Limits and several other neighborhood streets. The improvements consisted of sidewalks, bike lanes, intersection/traffic signal improvements (at Medusa), landscaping, signing, pavement markings and striping. M&S Engineering’s work effort included traffic control plans, TxDOT coordination and cost estimates. M&S Engineering provided design surveying and apparent ROW locations. The existing right-of-ways contained numerous above and below ground utilities. A Quality Level C utility map of utilities was prepared that included water, electric (OH/UG), telephone (OH/UG), cable-TV and sanitary sewer.
Quality Level A (potholing) was also provided to locate a large water main so it would not be damaged during construction of the traffic poles. The work required coordination with several utility companies, the Forum Shopping Center, and the City of Selma to determine the project area for a City of Selma new traffic signal at the Medusa intersection. Lee Engineering provided Traffic Engineering services as a sub-consultant.
This is the start of a Successful Relationship
Highest Level of Professional Engineering
M&S has been Southstar’s Civil Engineer for over 7 years and our success is a direct result of their stellar work. From their leadership down to the company’s focus and ideals M&S represents the highest level of professional engineering. They are focused on their client and understand our goals and challenges. Southstar would not be the company nor our projects be the success they are unless we had M&S by our side.
Focused on Developing Relationships
This partnership we have forged will launch our District well into the future. With a supportive Board we have focused on developing relationships that bond us with our consultants as partners rather than tools that we use. We feel that we have a very symbiotic relationship with our team at M&S.

Tim S. Gescheidle,
The staff at M&S has been fundamental in building the CIP for Crystal Clear SUD and in guiding the board of directors in all aspects of the overall concepts utilized. They have been able to explain things in manageable segments that have assured understanding at all director experience levels. We greatly appreciate their professionalism and true partnership with the Crystal Clear organization.
