KCA received good news this fall after being selected for the Melbourne Southwest Trail and NASA Boulevard Sidewalks Local Agency Program (LAP) Projects for the City of Melbourne. This win signifies the first-ever KCA contract win with the City of Melbourne.
These FDOT LAP-funded projects involve the design of three separate trail facilities in the City including an 8,659-foot (1.64-mile) trail beginning perpendicular to Stack Road; a 5,400-foot (1.02-mile) trail beginning perpendicular to Dairy Street; and another 5,400-foot (1.02-mile) trail beginning at the existing east-west trail system along E. Florida Avenue. In addition, the contract includes design of three segments of sidewalk improvements for a total of 8.210 feet (1.56 miles) along NASA Boulevard.
For this successful pursuit, KCA teamed with subconsultants Ardaman and Associates, Inc. (geotechnical); Brindley Pieters and Associates, Inc. (utility coordination); ECHO UES, Inc. (surveying and mapping); SEARCH, Inc. (cultural resources); and The Valerin Group (public involvement).
The KCA team is led by Project Manager (PM), Kevin Tasillo, PE, PTOE. KCA has been designing dedicated pedestrian and bicycle facilities since 1977. Within the past 15 years, KCA has completed more than 30 multi-use trails and pedestrian facilities in Florida.
Congrats to the entire team including Kevin Tasillo, PE, PTOE; John Burton, PE, PMP, PTOE; Tara Spieler, PE, Burak Konuk, PE, PTOE; and Simon Hagedoorn, PE. A big thanks to all that helped with the marketing efforts that contributed to this win!
