Michigan State Police Precision Driving Facility

Lansing, Michigan

The Challenge

The Michigan State Police were proposing the reconstruction of their 1-mile performance driving course at their Precision Driving Facility in Lansing, Michigan. PEA Group was contracted to do a preliminary evaluation of the current facility’s driving course and provide safety and design recommendations.

In order to compile the report, PEA Group conducted a facility assessment to identify specific safety concerns and to understand the current uses of the track and full scope of work required. Following a set of standards, while utilizing the information collected during the facility assessment, our team was able to provide our safety and design considerations, specifically for drainage and safety, as well as pavement surface improvements for performance handling.

Our team determined a significant portion of the course that did not meet the provided standards of safety and produced the recommendations needed to reconstruct it properly. In addition to the final report, PEA Group delivered a conceptual safety plan and detail sheets that included recommendations and details such as guardrail and crash rails.
