Mizell Johnson State Park Boardwalk

Florida Department of Environmental Protection
Dania Beach, Florida

Project Description

The Florida Department of Environmental Protection (FDEP) Bureau of Design and Construction selected WGI to provide structural engineering and construction administration services, survey, and environmental services on behalf of the FDEP Division of Recreation and Parks to design and permit the repair/replacement of an approximately 450-foot elevated wooden beach boardwalk and 1,000-foot frangible concrete jetty walkway located within Dr. Von D. Mizell-Eula Johnson State Park adjacent to the Port Everglades inlet.

WGI coordinated extensively with the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE) and the U.S. Navy due to overlapping with the USACE Port Everglades south jetty rehabilitation and Broward County beach renourishment projects at this location and access permissions for the adjacent Navsea Warfare Center. Some of the environmental work included Coastal Construction Control Line permitting; this included a coastal dune vegetation inventory to quantify potential impacts to coastal dune vegetation from construction.

• Multiple federal, state, and local stakeholders on a project within a state park
adjacent to a military facility and major coastal inlet.
