SR 9B Extension from I-95 to US 1 Wins Merit Award from DBIA Florida Region

October 1st, 2016


Orlando, Fla. – DRMP provided structural and traffic engineering for FDOT District Two’s SR 9B Extension from I-95 to US-1 project that won a DBIA Florida Region’s Design-Build Merit Award in the Transportation-Roadways Category.

Project Background

DRMP designed two twin bridge sites, SR 9B over Veveras Drive and SR 9B over FEC Railroad and US-1. SR 9B over Veveras Drive is a single span structure and consists of Florida-I 54 Beams supported by end bents founded on spread footings. Spread footings were used in lieu of driven piles accelerated the project schedule and reduced construction costs. SR 9B over FEC Railroad and US-1 is a two span structure and consists of Florida-I 78 Beams (FIB 78) supported by end bents and a standard pier founded on 24-inch square prestressed concrete piles. This FIB 78 superstructure alternative was a major cost and time savings over the conventional steel girders first proposed for the site.

DRMP also provided lighting and Intelligent Transportation Systems (ITS) design.  The ITS involved the replacement of the existing Gigabit Ethernet Fiber Optic Communications network and supporting devices (CCTV, VDS & DMS) along I-95. In addition, the replacement of the existing county fiber network cable and drops for signalization interconnect were replaced within the project limits along US 1.
