Project Description

Wekiva Parkway Section 6 Design-Build

RS&H is providing construction engineering and inspection services on the Wekiva Parkway Section 6 Design-Build project for FDOT District Five with project limits from west of SR 429 to just west of Longwood-Markham Road. The project includes six miles of limited access toll road which will be constructed in addition to a service road for local travel. 18 new bridges will be constructed, which includes three bridges featuring cast-in-place segmental main spans over the Wekiva River as well as several wildlife bridges for animal travel between Seminole State Forest, Rock Springs Run State Reserve, and Lower Wekiva River Preserve. The wildlife bridges will provide 7,800 feet of safe passage underneath the toll road and local service road.

Construction also includes a multi-use trail for pedestrians and bicyclists, removal of portions of SR 46 and CR 46A and building connector roads, roadway widening, medians and turn lanes, lighting, ITS, tolling infrastructure, landscape concept development, drainage, signing and pavement markings, coordination with utilities, and other roadway features.
