I-595 Corridor Improvements

The I-595 Corridor Improvements project in South Florida is one of the largest public-private partnerships (P3) in the U.S. The $1.8 billion in improvements to widen and expand the 10.5-mile corridor include the addition of auxiliary lanes, bypass and braided ramps, collector-distributor roadways, and a tolled reversible express lanes system. 

Serving as the Owner’s Representative to the Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT), RS&H developed the initial design, supported FDOT throughout the procurement process, and assisted with the ultimate selection of the concessionaire team. We continue to provide project reviews and engineering oversight throughout the design and construction, including working closely with the concessionaire team to identify and implement innovative concepts and address technical solutions. 

Our involvement in this project dates back to 2000, when we served as the Corridor Design Consultant. In this role, we oversaw the Master Plan development, prepared the Preliminary Engineering Study for the corridor, and developed the preliminary engineering plans for procurement of the P3 project.
