The Kings Highway Projects are broken into five segments with BCC being the lead designer responsible for managing the entire corridor. BCC successfully completed the design of the first two segments from SR 70 (Okeechobee Rd) to the I-95 Overpass which are currently under construction. BCC is currently developing the roadway geometry and construction plans for the next three segments. The project will reconstruct Kings Highway to a four-lane suburban section with 12-foot travel lanes, bike lanes in each direction, a 12-foot shared used path on the west side and a 6-foot sidewalk on the east side. Several North St. Lucie River Water Control District and Fort Pierce Farms Water Control District Canals that run parallel to Kings Highway, will also be relocated as part of the project. As part of the project Management responsibilities, BCC coordinated the right of way acquisition, permitting and utility relocation for the entire corridor.
BCC Engineering was the Lead Designer responsible for managing the team for the design of these 3 segments. BCC developed the overall concept, roadway geometry and final plans, in addition to supervising the Drainage, Structures, Signing and Pavement Markings Design & Utility Coordination.
