KCA was selected by FTE for the Central Polk Parkway from Polk Parkway to SR 35 project!
KCA will provide design services for the development of Phase I plans for the new alignment of the Central Polk Parkway (CPP) from SR 570 (Polk Parkway) to SR 35 (US 17). The proposed roadway will be tolled, and the project includes the design of a gantry for All Electronic Toll Collection. The services will be divided into a two-part scope in which Part A will develop 90% concept plans for the ultimate six-lane section for advance coordination with Florida Gas Transmission (FGT), identify right-of-way (R/W) needs, and develop a Project Recommendations Report. Part B potentially includes the development of final design and construction plans for the CPP Part A scope (optional service) and performing a PD&E reevaluation of Part A. Other Part B optional services include evaluating alternate alignments from US 17 to SR 60, PD&E reevaluation, and assisting FTE with RFP development for D/B procurement. For Part A, KCA will design an ultimate six-lane divided, limited-access highway typical section with a 68-foot median, 12-foot lanes, and 12-foot inside/outside shoulders (10-foot paved). This project also includes a 12-foot multi-use trail on the corridor’s east side. The alignment for the SR 570 to US 17 section will include a tri-level interchange at Polk Parkway, overpasses at SR 540, Thornhill Road (two locations), Old Bartow Eagle Lake Road, and an at-grade intersection at US 17.
The KCA Team will be responsible for roadway design, structures design, drainage design, traffic/S&PM/lighting/signalization, ITS, TTC, utility coordination/SUE, PD&E re-evaluation, environmental permitting, landscape architecture, tolling architecture, tolling structures, public involvement, surveying/R/W mapping, and geotechnical services.
Congrats to the entire project team including Tom Presby, Project Manager; Todd Gardina, PE, Deputy Project Manager; Guillermo Madriz, PE; Ali Tayebnejad, PE; Mark Easley; and several others from KCA departments. A big thanks to all the KCA team members who helped with the preparation of the presentation, and the marketing efforts that contributed to this win!
This is a significant win as KCA has NOT been awarded a FTE project (as a prime consultant) in more than 15 years!!
