Gandy Boulevard (SR 694) is an east/west urban principal arterial in Hillsborough and Pinellas counties. It is part of the National Highway System and Florida’s Strategic Intermodal System (SIS), and is a designated hurricane evacuation route. The primary objective of this project is to improve east/west traffic flow through the design and reconstruction of Gandy Boulevard in Pinellas County from east of I-275 to east of 4th Street North by providing a 4 to 6-lane controlled access facility. Improvements include grade-separated interchanges, frontage roads, the replacement of the existing box culvert on 4th Street North at Tinney Creek, new drainage and sidewalks, as well as other work. Innovative design resulted in a $37 Million savings to FDOT.
BCC was the Lead Designer for this project, and provided design services for Structures, Roadway, Drainage, and ITS.
