SOUTHBOUND I-95 WEIGH-IN-MOTION STATION
Martin County, FL
Based on innovative safe, environmentally sensitive, and operationally efficient designs, this project won the Honor Award by the 2012 Florida Institute of Consulting Engineers Engineering Excellence Awards Program.
Its Weigh-In-Motion/static scale system sorts potentially overweight and over-height trucks by requiring potential violators to travel through the station. It is the first station in Florida to weigh trucks in motion with sensors embedded in the outside at-speed travel lane of I-95. In addition, the main administration building for the station is Florida’s first LEED Silver Certified weigh-station facility.
This project also provided for potable water, self-supportive septic treatment, a package water treatment plant, and an emergency power generator.
