SCOPE OF WORK
This major project will see the reconstruction of SR-25/US-27/Okeechobee Road using rigid pavement from MP 6.31 to MP 8.146. The project also includes the design of bridges for grade separation of Okeechobee Road over N.W. 116th Place with a T-Bridge for S-E and N-W connections, as well as the design of left turn lane flyover bridges from Southbound N.W. 116th Place to Eastbound Okeechobee Road. Smaller bridges that cross the Miami (C-6) Canal, at N.W. 121st Avenue and at N.W. 116th Way, will also be widened in this project. The Frontage Road (MP 6.310 to MP 8.146) will also undergo complete reconstruction and realignment. Aside from the roadway specific work, the project’s scope includes 5 new signals and replacing 5 existing signals, as well as a new ITS system, drainage system, and lighting system.
As the Prime Designer, A&P Engineers was responsible for all design project management and coordination efforts. A&P developed the roadway geometry and final plans, led the structures concept and final design for 4 bridges, drainage, ITS, lighting, utility coordination, and miscellaneous structures. Once constructed, this will provide significant traffic operations and safety improvements for the interchange and the surrounding arterial network.
