I-95 AT ST. JOHNS HERITAGE PARKWAY SE
Brevard County, FL
St. John’s Heritage Parkway SE design project is part of an important, multi-faceted extension and expansion of this vital transportation artery in Brevard County. The joint design team produced a new interchange configuration after the county’s originally proposed partial cloverleaf was deemed unsafe for pedestrians and bicyclists. The new design, which WGI submitted through the ATC process, is Brevard County’s first diverging diamond interchange. Today’s roadway designs must move traffic more efficiently and enhance safety for vehicles, bicycles, and pedestrians, and WGI is at the forefront of the latest design needs, reducing speed and pedestrian crossing distances at intersections, adding new crossing signals, and minimizing the number of conflict points between vehicles, pedestrians, and bicycles. At three spans each, WGI’s design of the new bridges accommodates the future widening of the parkway to six lanes without requiring additional widening.
