POITRA used traditional digital painting techniques to remove or adjust properties and roadways eliminated or moved in each of the new design alternatives from the Engineer provided base photograph.
POITRA artists then added the overpass structure, interchange ramps, railroad overpass structure, retaining walls, laneage, traffic control, sidewalks, bike path, medians, fill slopes and landscaping. Many future off system streets were also represented in the simulation based upon available community planning information.
Great care was taken to ensure that the new lane markings were correct as they would help agencies understand the scope of the project. The previous bridge and roadway design experience of the POITRA Visual principals played a key role in quickly interpreting the Engineer's design plans and transforming the information for four different alternatives into an accurate illustrations of each proposed condition.
POITRA also produced a land use graphic for each alternative, again from community planning information, to help agencies understand the land impacts of the different alternatives.
The final aerial simulation images were used as meeting materials for the CalTrans and Stanislaus County design and public involvement process.
