The design includes an interchange at I-4 that will connect with SR 417 and complete the western beltway around Orlando. New interchange ramps will also provide access to and from International Parkway, SR 46, and CR 46A. BCC was primarily responsible for the roadway and drainage features associated with the I-4 reconstruction and the associated ramps. This included the widening and reconstruction of approximately 1.9 miles of I-4 between CR 46A and SR 46, widening or construction of twenty-two (22) bridges, and the improvement of stormwater management systems in open and closed basins and open channel and storm drain systems.
Additionally, BCC provided additional Transportation Planning Services including travel demand forecasting, VISUM analysis, and VISSIM simulation for the Wekiva 8 simulation support.
Relying on our proven experience, understanding of the project, and concept enhancements through our approved Alternative Technical Concepts, BCC along with our 13 sub-consultants is once again leading the charge in designing facilities that improve the operations of the most integral portions of our public transportation infrastructure, while simultaneously creating long-term cost savings to the Florida Department of Transportation.
