Project: HEFT (Turnpike Extension) from Eureka Drive to Killian Parkway
Client: Florida’s Turnpike Enterprise
Cost: $143 Million
Location: Miami-Dade County
Description: BCC Engineering is the prime designer for the project, responsible for Project Management and coordination, roadway concept development and roadway and bridge design. De Moya is the prime contractor. This project provides for the implementation of express lanes along this segment of the HEFT, as well as the opportunity for the Miami-Dade Expressway Authority (MDX) to incorporate a major extension of SR 874 through the heart of the HEFT/SR 874 interchange.
This project also consisted of the construction of 13 bridges.Major scopes of work include roadway widening and construction, drainage, MOT, bridge widenings, utility and rail (CSX) coordination, architecture and site civil works, ITS, tolls, and noise walls. Constructing these improvements together via the design-build procurement method provides significant economic and time benefits as well as minimizes construction impacts to FTE and MDX customers.
