Pinellas County selected the C&G/KCA Team for the Pinellas Trail Loop North Segment Design-Build project!
The Cone and Graham (C&G)/KCA Team has been awarded Pinellas County’s $8 million Pinellas Trail Loop North Segment Design-Build (D/B) project. The team received the highest technical proposal and oral presentation score. The Pinellas Trail Loop will become a vital link throughout Pinellas County and the surrounding roadway network as part of the emerging Southwest Coast Regional Trail. This 75-mile loop will ultimately provide regional connectivity as the longest continuous trail in Florida for a cross state connection to the planned Coast to Coast Trail. The ultimate vision for the trail network is one which provides multi-modal accommodations for pedestrians/bicyclists creating the foundation for non-motorized travel throughout Pinellas County while interconnecting other networks. Currently, the 75-mile planned loop requires approximately 21.35 miles of trail construction for loop completion. This project will focus on constructing the northernmost gap within the Pinellas Trail Loop beginning south of Enterprise Road, connecting to the Duke Energy Trail. The trail will run approximately 6.5 miles to the north utilizing a large portion of the Duke Energy easement and will terminate north above the Lake Tarpon Outfall connecting the southernmost trailhead at John Chestnut Park.
KCA will provide roadway and structures design, drainage, traffic/signing and pavement marking/signalization, and environmental/permitting services for this project.
Congrats to the entire project team including John Burton, PE, PTOE, Project Manager; Branan Anderson, PE, Roadway EOR; Fathy Abdalla, Ph.D., PE, PTOE; Carlos Layrisse, PE; Ali Tayebnejad, PE; Robert Whitman, Jr.; and Tom Shaw, PE; as well as several others from KCA departments.
