Clinton Riverview Park Festival Area Engineering and Design
Students in the College of Engineering's Civil Engineering area completed their undergraduate capstone projects with a focus on Clinton's Riverview Park. Because the park is the site of a new festival is bringing a much larger number of visitors to the area than in the past, the City asked the team to develop plans to upgrade current facilities and add new fixtures to better accommodate the park's evolving use.
A new annual musical festival in Clinton is bringing more people and traffic to the city's riverfront area. This event inspired the city to consider how to improve the area to meet a wider range of uses. As part of their Senior Design Capstone Course, Civil & Environmental Engineering students worked with the Clinton Parks & Recreation Department to identify and design site improvements, such as stormwater management, parking, storm shelters, and trails.
