Florida’s Turnpike Widening and Express Lanes from Osceola Parkway to Beachline Expressway

Florida's Turnpike Enterprise
Orange and Osceola Counties, FL
ACEC-FL Engineering Excellence Grand Award

Project Description

Another comprehensive and highly involved project requiring a wide range of WGI’s services, responsibilities included roadway design; drainage; signing and pavement marking design and plans production; structures design and plans production for the two 1,700+ foot long Category II third-level steel box girder bridges at the SR 417 interchange; mainline tolling gantry design; environmental permitting; utility coordination; subsurface utility exploration; and survey and mapping services.

This widening of Florida’s Turnpike from Osceola Parkway to the Beachline Expressway and the remaining three ramp movements at the Turnpike/SR 417 interchange also required the reconstruction and/or widening of the Osceola Parkway and Orlando South Interchange exit/entry ramps, and the replacement of the existing ramp bridge at the Orlando South Interchange.

Other bridge-related improvements included replacement of the SR 91 bridges over the Central Florida Rail Corridor and Central Florida Parkway/CSX Railroad Spur, and the replacement of existing Orange County roadway overpasses at CR 527 (Orange Avenue) and Taft-Vineland Road. All included extensive roadway improvements as well.

The rest of the project scope required signing and pavement marking related to the implementation of express lanes, drainage and stormwater management improvements, highway lighting within the interchange limits, upgrading existing ITS infrastructure, and the addition of three tolling facilities.
