2022 FTBA Best in Construction LAP Award
KCA’s Maydell Drive over Palm River Bridge Replacement PD&E/Design project recently won the 2022 FTBA Best in Construction LAP Award. KCA’s Project Manager, Jason LaBarbera, PE; CDM Smith (Virgil Rook); and Orion Marine Group will be recognized for their outstanding efforts on this project at the FTBA Annual Convention in August.
This Hillsborough County/FDOT District Seven LAP project consisted of replacing the existing 616-foot bridge, reconstructing the roadway approaches, and providing pedestrian connectivity. The structurally deficient bridge had been closed to vehicular and pedestrian traffic for several years. The KCA team provided a PD&E, final design plans, specifications, and construction phase support for this project. Seeking an accelerated design schedule, KCA guided the County through the FDOT State-Wide Acceleration Transformation (SWAT) process.
