A recently completed widening of a 1 mile section of Nicolaus Road demonstrates the ability of Frayji Design Group to accomplish for its clients what many others deemed impossible. The City of Lincoln, California looked to upgrade a 1-mile stretch of Nicolaus Road that had been deemed structurally deficient yet was increasingly receiving traffic. Located directly south of the Lincoln Regional Airport, the prior 22 foot wide road needed to be widened to 32 feet, providing for two 12 foot travel lanes, one 4 foot shoulder and bike lane in each direction, and a center median.
