Our firm provided services for the reconstruction of SR 200 into an upgraded hurricane evacuation route, converting a rural roadway into an urban arterial with special emphasis on semi-truck mobility. As one of Nassau County’s most heavily traveled corridors with especially high truck volume, a Polymer Modified Binder Mix was utilized for the asphalt in order to provide improved resistance to rutting and reflective cracking. This critical corridor was bordered by multiple residential and commercial properties including a school zone and a Fire and Rescue facility.
The scope of this project included the reconstruction of 5.5 miles of 4-lane rural to a 6-lane urban arterial roadway including the replacement of the mainline bridges over Lofton Creek. Some incidental work for this project included the construction of nine ponds, box culvert extensions, 28 drilled shafts, nine interconnected signalized intersections actuated by advanced traffic loops and video detection, as well as directional drill at Lofton Creek to replace both water main and force mains.
