Manhard was retained by Pilot Travel Centers LLC. to provide engineering, surveying, and landscape architecture services for the development of their new fuel station located along Kedzie Avenue in Alsip, Illinois. 

The project is located at the northwest corner of 127th Street and Kedzie Avenue.  Manhard Consulting was engaged during the early planning stages of this development to help design a site plan that was compatible for both diesel fueling lanes and standard automobile service islands.  During this initial step, Pilot Travel Centers emphasized their commitment to creating an efficient circulation pattern on the site.  Furthermore, the anticipated permitting challenges of the Illinois Department of Transportation (IDOT) and the Metropolitan Water Reclamation District of Greater Chicago (MWRDGC) were identified by Manhard Consulting to guide Pilot Travel Centers throughout this process.

Pilot Travel Center’s strategic mission is to make the everyday commuter enjoy the best experience possible.  This new 5,500 square foot facility will accomplish this goal be featuring two (2) quick service restaurants and a sizeable convenience store.  The new travel center has become a destination for the traveling public and a staple within the local community.
