I-75 Design-Build from South of SR 50 to Hernando/Sumter County Line

WGI’s design-build project, I-75 Design-Build from South of SR 50 to Hernando/Sumter County Line, was recognized by the ACEC-FL Outstanding Projects Awards Committee as a 2020 Outstanding Major Project.

The American Council of Engineering Companies of Florida (ACEC-FL) annually recognizes outstanding achievements by its members in accomplishing the Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT) studies and projects.

WGI teamed with Middlesex Corporation to deliver this $94M Design-Build project to widen and reconstruct six miles of I-75 in Hernando County. The project includes reconstruction of the interchange at US 98/SR 50/Cortez Boulevard to a Single Point Urban Interchange (SPUI) configuration.

I 75 DBThis major design-build project alleviated regional congestion by adding capacity to six miles of I-75. WGI and its build partner widened I-75 from four lanes to six, making accommodations and permitting offsite ponds for a future eight-lane roadway.

The project’s design improved functionality during construction, through coordination with local agencies and stakeholders, and in its final condition, with increased capacity and optimized signalization.

I 75 DB The project’s bridges over the Withlacoochee State Trail and River were built without impacts to the environment. WGI’s design reduced fill by 300,000 yards, eliminated 20,000 truck deliveries, and reduced future maintenance and mowing.
