Cone & Graham Inc. (C&G) in association with KCA was selected by the Florida Department of Transportation, District Seven to provide all aspects of the creation of the SR 56 Extension from Meadow Pointe Boulevard to US 301 in Pasco County (including providing the right-of-way, PD&E re-evaluation, permitting, utilities, design, drainage, and construction).
C&G will construct the four-lane divided typical section compatible with the ultimate six-lane section and centered in a 250-foot right-of-way corridor. All ponds will be designed and constructed to accommodate the ultimate six-lane typical section with frontage roads. The project also includes three new signalized intersections at Meadow Pointe Boulevard, Morris Bridge Road, and US 301.
This project will make use of an Innovative Bid process that allows the FDOT to negotiate a contract that provides the best value. This innovative approach will minimize the cost of the project, ensure the Department’s design and construction standards are met, and address difficult challenges relative to the right-of-way required for this project.
This was an important win for KCA as it was the first P3 project awarded to our firm by FDOT District Seven and, for 18 months prior to selection, our team worked with project stakeholders and landowners. We conducted multiple field reviews and became very familiar with the project corridor and were able to develop strong relationships with the landowners.
Design has begun and construction is expected to begin summer 2015.
