Kissimmee Park Road Interchange
RS&H performed CEI services for the Kissimmee Park Road Interchange which included a new two-span bridge over the Turnpike with tolled ramps implementing SunPass-only technology.
This project overcame several challenges including foundation pile problems and complex construction phasing. A corrective procedure was implemented to restore pile integrity while saving time. Revised project phasing was necessary to allow a functional tie-in with an adjacent construction project and allowed early opening of interchange ramps. Diligent correspondence with a sole source fabricator of toll collection gantry systems helped avoid installation delays. The SunPass Only ramps (NB & SB) included construction of new aluminum gantries and equipment buildings.
