WANTMAN GROUP, INC. SELECTED FOR I-75 EXPRESS LANES PROJECT BY FLORIDA DEPARTMENT OF TRANSPORTATION DISTRICT 4
Wantman Group, Inc. (WGI), in association with Ranger Construction Industries (Ranger), is pleased to announce their selection by the Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT) District 4 to provide design-build services that will add express lanes on I-75 from Miramar Parkway to Sheridan Street, reconstruct the Miramar Parkway interchange and construct a new bridge for Pembroke Road over I-75 in Broward County.
This 3.6-mile segment, also known as Segment “C”, is one in a series of five major projects on I-75. Segment C’s primary goal is to provide express lanes in the I-75 median, provide an egress point northbound and an ingress point southbound from/to the express lanes, and provide two new tolling points. WGI will lead the Design Team for this $85 million project that is a critical component of overall improvements to the corridor in both Miami-Dade and Broward Counties.
“We are pleased to once again partner with District 4 and with Ranger,” said David Wantman, PE, President of WGI. “Ranger and FDOT have been our partners for decades and their trust in WGI on this significant project is a testament to our entire team’s commitment to deliver. Express Lanes are a recognized and proven method to aid traffic management by introducing congestion pricing that creates new options for transportation agencies and the traveling public. With decreased funding, increased congestion, and constrained corridors, express lanes are a viable, cost-effective option to improve mobility and enhance economic development.”
WGI has consistently worked with the FDOT for over 40 years. As a multi-disciplinary consulting firm, WGI has six offices throughout Florida and is comprised of eight separate divisions devoted to the following disciplines: Civil Engineering, Municipal Engineering, Transportation Engineering, Surveying and Mapping, Subsurface Utility Engineering, Construction, Environmental and Planning services. WGI has been recognized for four consecutive years on The Zweig White Hot Firm List. The list contains 200 of the fastest–growing architecture, engineering, planning and environmental consulting firms in the country. The South Florida Business Journal recently ranked WGI number 8 on the “Top 25 Engineering Firms in South Florida” list.
