KCA Wins Roadway Design Contract in FDOT District Five!
KCA received great news on October 22 when it was selected by FDOT District Five to design the SR 25/US 301 Resurfacing Rehabilitation and Restoration (RRR) improvements in Marion County. The win signifies the first roadway design contract win for KCA in District Five since 2015 and also resulted from competition from 34 other letters submitted for the contract!
The project provides RRR and safety improvements along 8.65 miles of SR 25/US 301 in Marion County. The project’s improvements are aimed to extend the facility’s service life and increase the pavement’s poor life cycle through milling and resurfacing the existing pavement, shoulder widening, and widening/extending turn lanes in addition to drainage, traffic and traffic control, utility coordination, landscape architecture, and public involvement work. SR 25 is a rural principal arterial and serves a major connector between the Port of Tampa and Jacksonville for freight, and therefore, serves as a major trucking corridor for the region. The highway is part of the National Highway System and has a combination of a C-2 Rural and Suburban Commercial (C-3C) context classifications and Strategic Intermodal System (SIS) designation.
The KCA team is led by Project Manager, Kevin Tasillo, PE, PTOE, who has 13 years of project management experience including highway construction, reconstruction and resurfacing, safety analysis, and operational improvements. This is Kevin’s first project win as a PM in District Five, and he is looking forward to expanding relationships with District staff.
Congratulations to the pursuit team including Kevin Tasillo, PE, PTOE; Steve Johnston, PE; Roger Rossitto, PE; Fathy Abdalla, Ph.D., PE, PTOE; and Courtney Duran. A big thanks to all that helped with the preparation of this letter of interest, proposal, Q&A interview, and the marketing efforts that contributed to this win!
