US 41 WIDENING FROM SR 951 TO GREENWAY ROAD
Collier County, FL
Completed 150 days ahead of schedule and saving the State $7.7 million, WGI’s team designed 3.5 miles of US 41 from two-lane rural roadway to a six-lane divided suburban section. The design innovations that saved time and money included eliminating the deep-exfiltration system, adding dry treatment swales, fitting the stormwater conveyance system within the existing right-of-way, and replacing a gravity wall with a noise wall foundation that was also more aesthetically pleasing. In addition, the project required relocation of 14 utilities to a joint-use trench and a bridge replacement with a Florida Panther crossing shelf.
