FLAGLER MEMORIAL BRIDGE REPLACEMENT
West Palm Beach, FL
This high-profile project of the northernmost of only three bridges that connect West Palm Beach over the Intracoastal to the island of Palm Beach involved replacement of the existing Flagler Memorial Bridge with a new four-lane divided urban section bridge. Traffic barrier-separated sidewalks were included along both sides of the new bridge with a pedestrian/bicycle railing on the outside of the sidewalks. Additionally, the existing bridge overpass at Flagler Drive and SR A1A was eliminated and replaced with an at-grade signalized intersection.
The utility design portion granted to WGI included the redesign and replacement of existing gravity sanitary sewer along a portion of the corridor, and utility service to a new bridgetender house.
