Proven Performance.

E.L. Robinson Engineering has continually adapted and expanded its skill set to best serve and improve the communities in which we work and live. The following highlighted and sample projects provide a very small glimpse at what ELR has accomplished over the past 35 years in the civil engineering field.

MacCorkle Avenue / WV 61 Pedestrian Bicycle Trail Feasibility Analysis

Location: Charleston, West Virginia

Client: City of Charleston

Cost: $20,000

Completion date: January, 2010


  • Land Planning & Landscape Architecture


  • Public Infrastructure
  • Recreation

The City of Charleston Engineering Department working with the Charleston Land Trust’s Riverside South Committee engaged E.L. Robinson Engineering to perform a preliminary feasibility analysis of a proposed pedestrian and bicycle trail, approximately 3 miles long, on the south side of the Kanawha River from Patrick Street Bridge to the Verizon building parking area along MacCorkle Avenue westbound lane.

The resulting analysis recommended a 17 foot bridge deck structure adjacent to the west bound lane’s shoulder for about 12,000 feet and the remaining portion of the trail on sufficient flat grade for a total estimated cost over 15 million dollars.
