Max Brewer Bridge  

A. Max Brewer Bridge Replacement
Lane Construction Corporation for FDOT District Five

DRMP is responsible for the design and plans preparation for this design build project in conjunction with Lane Construction Corporation.  The project is located within the City of Titusville, Brevard County east of US 1 along SR 406. The principal intent of this project is to replace the existing A. Max Brewer Bridge (Bridge No. 704049) and South Relief Bridge (Bridge No. 704125) with a replacement bridge, which will be one single structure with a length of 3,500 feet.  The high-level bridge shall be designed to carry two 12-foot lanes (one in each direction) with 8-foot outside shoulders, and 5-foot wide sidewalks separated from the shoulder by a standard F-Shape traffic railing barrier. A pedestrian/bicycle railing was provided on the outsides of the sidewalk.  A proposed recreational fishing pier will be located at the end of the West Causeway and will extend into the river parallel to the proposed high-level bridge.

US 17-92 Interchange at SR 436
Lane Construction Corporation for FDOT District Five

DRMP was the lead design consultant along with the Lane Construction Corporation as the lead contractor for this $22 million design-build project in the City of Casselberry, Seminole County, Fla. This intersection is one of the most congested intersections in Florida with over 100,000 motorists traveling daily through the US 17-92/SR 436 corridor. The project was contracted as a design-build project to provide a single-point urban interchange (SPUI) at US 17-92 and SR 436.  The interchange elevated four lanes of US 17-92 over SR 436 at what was previously an at-grade intersection. The project constructed the flyover bridge over SR 436 with FIB 96 beams, the longest ones in Florida as well as the United States. The flyover bridge is configured in three, simply supported spans with a main span of 209-feet and two approach spans of 124-feet for a total bridge length of 457-feet. The project included: roadway design, structural design, traffic/ITS design, drainage design, surveying and mapping, utility coordination, maintenance of traffic and permitting.

I-485 Widening from I-77 to Rea Road
STV, Inc. and Lane Construction Corporation for NCDOT

DRMP provided ITS design for STV, Inc. and the Lane Construction Corporation for the $83 million design-build project that widened I-485 approximately 9.2-miles from four to six lanes between I-77 and Rea Road in Mecklenburg County, North Carolina.  This section of I-485 is one of the most congested roadways in North Carolina, averaging 110,000-135,000 vehicles per day (2010 volume), with trucks making up seven percent of those vehicles. Specifically, DRMP provided conduit routing and ITS related design services within the limits of the project.  The design included: fiber, conduit, electrical, splice details, and control equipment for the relocation of a Dynamic Message Sign (DMS); approximately 36,000 linear feet of underground conduit; 900 linear feet of bridge mounted conduit; 65 junction boxes; and 5 identified CCTV locations.  DRMP coordinated directly with NCDOT ITS Section and NCDOT Metrolina Transportation Management Center (TMC) for approval of plans. DRMP also worked with STV to complete the Norfolk Southern (N-S) Railroad wireline agreement for permit of the conduit routing across an existing N-S railroad right-of-way.
