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.

South Charleston Pedestrian and Bicycle Trail Study

Location: South Charleston, West Virginia

Client: City of South Charleston

Cost: $25,000

Completion date: October, 2011


  • Land Planning & Landscape Architecture


  • Recreation
  • Transportation

The City of South Charleston retained E.L. Robinson Engineering (ELR) to develop trail routes through South Charleston such as; (1) connection of South Charleston to Charleston along MacCorkle Avenue (trail extension for the Kanawha Trestle Trail); (2) the Mound District; (3) Spring Hill area; (4) Riverwalk and the Recreation Center; (5) Little Creek Park and Golf Course; (6) to the RHL Boulevard (Shops at Trace Fork); (7) and other possible distinct neighborhoods. The plan determined suitable corridors, developed cost estimates, ranked them in order of preference for funding, generated typical cross sections, and identified street markings or signage for the basic types of trail/routes that are recommended.
