This 745-day project reconstructed the interchange at University Parkway and I-75, replacing the existing interchange with a diverging diamond interchange.  The project included the widening of four bridge structures and the removal and replacement of two bridge structures. The overall length of the bridge widening was 665 LF and the overall length of the new bridge construction was 556 LF. In addition to eight special detours, the multi-phased bridge construction required the installation of a 281 LF ACROW bridge to maintain traffic on the highly traveled roadway. The bridges are supported on 18” and 24” driven concrete piling and FIB (63”) and Type II ASHTO beams. Other significant elements of work included more than 500,000 CY’s of embankment, 300,000 SY’s of Base and Paving, nearly 25,000 LF of drainage pipe and associated structures, and more than 5,000 LF of underground utility piping. Additional elements under this contract included signalization, lightning, and sign and pavement markings and ITS improvements.
