KCA is awarded US 27 from Presidents Drive to SR 60
Owner: FDOT District One
This project will widen US 27 from four to six lanes and reconstruct the partial cloverleaf interchange at SR 60 with an interchange to accommodate the six-lane section on US 27. This segment of US 27 is a rural principal arterial facility and a component of the Strategic Intermodal System. It is a vital link for trucks to transport goods from the agricultural centers in the south and the Port of Miami to the Central Florida Intermodal Logistics Center.
This FDOT-estimated $41 million project will include TTC, lighting, drainage, environmental and permitting, structures, archaeological analysis, noise studies, traffic and signals, geotech and contamination, R/W and survey, utilities, and public involvement/stakeholder coordination. KCA evaluated seven interchange configurations and recommended a partial cloverleaf (Parclo), which will eliminate the design challenges presented by the other configurations, including the SPUI recommended in the PD&E.
Congratulations to the project team that includes Tom Presby, Todd Gardina, Tom Shaw, Tara Spieler, Fathy Abdalla, Sarah Johnson, and Mark Easley. Thanks to Marketing and Roadway (Branan Anderson, Jonathan Langston, Deborah Hernandez, and Rachel Moyers) for their assistance with this awesome win!
