Alternate A1A Streetscape Design
WGI assisted the City of Palm Beach Gardens in developing a beautification grant package for submittal to the Florida Department of Transportation District 4 (FDOT). The grant was for a 1.2-mile section of SR 811/Alternate A1A from the Earman Canal to Burns Road. WGI performed all coordination with the District Landscape Architect on behalf of the City. For the grant package, WGI prepared conceptual landscape plans, graphic renderings, and conceptual landscape and irrigation cost estimates. WGI also assisted the City in preparing the grant write up. Upon award of the grant from FDOT, the City contracted WGI to provide full construction drawings for the project which included landscape and irrigation plans as well as traffic control plans and cost estimates. WGI also provided construction observation services. The streetscape design included landscape and irrigation improvements to the medians and west shoulder, helping to buffer the adjacent FEC Railroad and provide a pleasant aesthetic for the corridor.
