Owner: FDOT District One
KCA was selected for the Project Development & Environment (PD&E) Study of SR 70 from Jefferson Avenue to CR 29 in Highlands County by FDOT District One. This is the first PD&E project KCA has won since we earned our prequalification in the FDOT’s 2.0 workgroup. SR 70 serves as an east-west corridor across central Florida from Bradenton to Fort Pierce. The objective of this study is to evaluate widening SR 70 between Jefferson Avenue and CR 29 to provide a four-lane facility with paved shoulders. Adding a multi-use trail and sidewalk will also be assessed. The study will cover seven miles and include evaluating improvements to the SR 70 intersection at US 27. The KCA Team will be responsible for studying traffic and function, access management, pedestrian, bicycle, and vehicular safety, utility coordination, stormwater management, wetlands and listed species assessment, cultural resources, conservation lands evaluation, noise and air, contamination, and public involvement.
Congrats to Mark Easley, Bob Whitman, Mike Campo, Tara Spieler, Rachel Moyers, Donna Douglas and Elisa Guggino (Marketing), and all others that helped with the preparation of this proposal and the marketing efforts that contributed to this win!
