Hillsborough County Progress Boulevard and S. 78th Street Improvements!
Owner: Hillsborough County
KCA Selected for Hillsborough County’s Progress Boulevard and S. 78th Street Improvements Project!
KCA received great news on October 22 when it was selected by Hillsborough County to evaluate the widening of Progress Boulevard and roadway improvements to S. 78th Street. This PD&E study involves widening Progress Boulevard, a two-lane undivided road, from Magnolia Park Boulevard to Valleydale Drive to provide a four-lane divided facility with enhanced pedestrian, bicycle, and bus facilities. Widening Progress Boulevard will require widening the existing I-75 overpass or constructing a new overpass spanning the interstate. Improvements to S. 78th Street, a two-lane undivided road from Progress Boulevard to Causeway Boulevard, includes turn lane improvements and enhanced pedestrian, bicycle, and bus facilities. KCA will develop PD&E documents and 30% design plans. The KCA team will ensure our conceptual designs meet the County’s Vision Statement (provide enhanced roadway corridors with improved safety, mobility, and congestion relief through a context and environmentally sensitive design, which is supported by community and key project stakeholders).
Congratulations to the pursuit team including Mark Easley, Project Manager; Michael Campo, PE, Deputy Project Manager; Fathy Abdalla, Ph.D., PE, PTOE; Jason LaBarbera, PE; Curtis Sprunger, PE; Rachel Moyers, PE; Chris Meares, PE; John Mera; and several others from KCA departments. A big thanks to all that helped with the preparation of the proposal, presentation, and the marketing efforts that contributed to this win!
