In the Media: Crosstown Parkway Extension

The RS&H-designed Crosstown Parkway Extension, set to open this fall, realizes a longstanding goal Port St. Lucie, Florida planners first had nearly 40 years ago: to add a vital crossing over the north fork of the St. Lucie River.

The project, featured in the latest issue of Roads & Bridges, creates a third crossing into Port St. Lucie, relieves traffic congestion and provides an additional hurricane evacuation route. This is the first bridge project of its kind in which both design and construction were managed by the city instead of by the Florida DOT (FDOT). It also includes the first “superstreet” intersection in the state.

Port St. Lucie City Engineer Patricia Roebling credits past and present city council members, staff, the RS&H-Archer Western Design-Build Team and the perseverance of an entire community with finally making the $150 million project a reality.

“We had unique funding, lawsuit, and permitting challenges, but the design-build process allowed us to overcome them and have a truly successful project,” Roebling said. “We have an outstanding partnership and team, and have been able to value engineer for added cost savings.”
