Aligning responsibilities and risk by joining the forces that depend so heavily upon each other, benefits all parties – especially the taxpayer.
WGI’s Kernan Boulevard Widening Project Receives Design-Build Award!
We’re proud to announce that WGI received a DBIA Florida Region Honor Award in the Transportation – Roadway Category for the Kernan Boulevard Widening from Atlantic Boulevard to McCormick Road project in Jacksonville, FL.
We collaborated with owner Jacksonville Transportation Authority and build partner Superior Construction on this 2.73-mile project, reconstructing Kernan Boulevard into a four- and six-lane divided highway. In addition to roadway construction, this project included a new storm sewer system, management facilities, a 12′ wide multi-use path, utility relocations, traffic signal design and modifications, and lighting enhancements. This design-build project was completed six months ahead of schedule and on-budget.

JTA’s project manager, Angie Williams, was pleased with the project, saying,
“Early project completion means early public use and satisfaction along with earlier returns on capital investment and bolsters our agency’s customer satisfaction.”
The project is an excellent example of how WGI’s spirit of partnership and technical expertise results in ‘design-build done right’.
