INSIDE THE PROJECT
The project consisted of replacing the Broadway Avenue (SR-14) structure over IR-77 as well as reconfiguring the ramps from IR-490 EB/WB to IR-77 SB to provide standard lane width and merge distances. The existing ramp from Broadway Avenue to IR-77 SB was reconstructed as a Frontage Road to Pershing Avenue. The mainline lanes of IR-77 SB, adjacent to the ramp work, were resurfaced as part of this project and a multi-use path constructed along the Frontage Road.
To accommodate grade changes and significant existing and proposed utilities, four different wall types were designed, including a jet grouted wall and a soldier pile wall to span an AT&T duct bank.
The project scope included many key milestone dates, utility conflicts, and the design of a highly skewed, 400-foot two-span bridge. The milestones were met by delivering the project design plans in multiple buildable units, allowing portions of the project to be constructed in advance.
