KCA Selected to Design City of North Port’s Tropicaire Boulevard Shared-Use Path Project
The KCA team received good news on March 22 when it was selected by the City of North Port to design its new Tropicaire Boulevard Shared-Use Path project. The win signifies KCA’s first-ever contract win with the City and adds yet another design project to KCA’s already impressive shared-use path project experience resume.
The proposed 5-mile, 8-foot-wide paved asphalt shared-use path is expected to run adjacent to the south side of Tropicaire Blvd. from Toledo Blade Boulevard to Ponce De Leon Boulevard in North Port and will serve as an important principal east-west connector for the City’s northern boundary. Tropicaire Blvd. is already used as a well-traveled vehicle, pedestrian, bicycle, and equestrian facility. KCA will team with the City to develop a separate and safer path option for North Port residents that will become a great addition to the community and the City’s bike/pedestrian network.
KCA has designed more than 20 shared-use path projects over the last 15 years. The City selected KCA for its extensive background in shared-use path design and its innovative ideas including the use of Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs) as part of the renderings and design of the project. Work is expected to begin later this year.
Led by Project Manager Alfredo Cely, PE, the KCA team will be tasked with performing design, environmental permitting, development of construction plans and specifications, construction cost and time estimating, and engineering services during construction.
Congrats to the entire team including Alfredo Cely, PE, Project Manager (first win as Project Manager); Guillermo Madriz, PE; Carlos Layrisse, PE; Tara Spieler, PE; John Burton, PE, PTOE; Sarah Johnson; John Raymond; and Wes Wright, EI; and others from KCA departments. A big thanks to all that helped with the preparation of this proposal and the marketing efforts that contributed to this win!
