SR 842/LAS OLAS BOULEVARD RIDE DEFICIENCY IMPROVEMENTS
Fort Lauderdale, FL
This urban roadway provides access to downtown Fort Lauderdale to the west and the beaches to the east. Responsibilities included design plans and specifications to address ride and pavement deficiencies, pavement repairs, underground utility and drainage adjustments, and American Disability Act and pedestrian issues along the right-of-way corridor. Services included the review of FDOT pavement-evaluation reports and geotechnical reports to determine the best design and construction methods to correct the ride and pavement deficiencies. To address these deficiencies, the design included the milling and resurfacing the entire roadway surface. Within several areas of the roadway, muck and unsuitable soils were discovered which necessitated the incorporation of a full-depth asphalt replacement design. In addition, pavement and marking plans, maintenance of traffic plans, cost estimates, ADA ramp and pedestrian access modifications, drainage improvements, video inspections, bidding assistance and post design construction services were provided.
