Transportation

The Balmoral Group transportation team is highly regarded for our

project management and production skills. Our professional staff is highly experienced in

roadway and transportation design throughout the State of Florida, with an expertise in solving complex

drainage situations.

Our staff experience includes

  • roadway

  • drainage and traffic engineering design for resurfacing, and

  • widening and new alignment projects associated with minor, major and limited access roadways.

Quality Control and staff training are high priorities in order to increase our efficiency and allow collective wisdom to be shared quickly throughout the firm. In addition, our in-house economics resources provide our design professionals access to the latest information regarding materials costs, contracting trends, and land use issues. This knowledge allows our engineers to incorporate evolving industry issues into our design decisions.

SR 20 (US 27/Apalachee Parkway) at SR 265 (Magnolia Drive) Intersection Improvements, Leon County

FDOT District Three

This project was the result of a Safety Study to improve pedestrian safety. The project implemented TBG’s proposed concept to relocate the eastbound and westbound right turns from the adjacent frontage road to the SR 20 mainline to make it a more conventional intersection in order to improve safety. The project involved widening, drainage, signing, pavement marking, intersection lighting and signal improvements. TBG supported the District with Utility Coordination and Public Involvement efforts.

SR 77 (Main Street) at CR 273 (South Boulevard) Intersection Improvements, Washington County

FDOT District Three

This project consisted of the addition of eastbound and westbound turn lanes for the widening of CR 273. The project also included pavement resurfacing, addition of curb, gutter and sidewalk along CR 273 and SR 77, upgrade of the drainage system along CR 273 to alleviate flooding, signing, pavement marking, replacement of the existing strain pole signal with mast arms, addition of intersection lighting for pedestrians. The project required right-of-way acquisition, and design challenges included contamination within the intersection, involvement with numerous utilities, and avoidance of impacts to adjacent businesses. TBG supported the District with Utility Coordination and Public Involvement efforts.

SR 263 (US 319/Capital Circle) @ Stoneler Road Intersection Improvements, Leon County

FDOT District Three

The Balmoral Group was tasked with the widening of SR 263 to add a northbound left turn lane to Stoneler Road to improve safety. The project included friction course resurfacing, reconstruction of paved shoulders, reconstruction of curb and gutter to realign a right turn lane, minor drainage improvements, and signing and pavement marking upgrades. The project resulted in wetland impacts and required acquisition of a Temporary Construction Easement. TBG supported the District with Utility Coordination efforts.

Lyons Road from Norte Lago Drive to Pine Springs Drive

FDOT District Four

This project consisted of the addition of eastbound and westbound turn lanes for the widening of CR 273. The project also included pavement resurfacing, addition of curb, gutter and sidewalk along CR 273 and SR 77, upgrade of the drainage system along CR 273 to alleviate flooding, signing, pavement marking, replacement of the existing strain pole signal with mast arms, addition of intersection lighting for pedestrians. The project required right-of-way acquisition, and design challenges included contamination within the intersection, involvement with numerous utilities, and avoidance of impacts to adjacent businesses. TBG supported the District with Utility Coordination and Public Involvement efforts.

SR 5/ US 1, Duval County

FDOT District Two

This project consisted of widening of Philips Highway from a four-lane rural section to an eight-lane urban section including median and bicycle lanes in Jacksonville, Florida, this involved substantial utility coordination efforts within a restricted right of way. This highly developed corridor included multiple businesses and intersections with several major arterials, including I-95. Right-of-Way was required for pond sites, corner clips, signal poles, guide signs and construction easements. Value Engineering was performed after the Phase II submittal.

SR 200 (US 301) Resurfacing, Clay County

FDOT District Two

RRR design of 5.5 miles of a rural four-lane roadway on an FIHS facility. This project was designed using AutoCAD Civil 3D, with an abbreviated plan set.  Additional improvements include modifying median inlets to make them traversable, replacement of broken ditch pavement, and signal loop replacement including the use of wireless magnetometer devices. The design of the project was completed from Notice to Proceed to the Specifications Submittal in just 9 months.

SR 15/ US 17, Duval County

FDOT District Two

Mill and Resurface project totaling 1.8 miles of rural and urban roadway.  Improvements included the addition of two turn lanes and widening several existing turn lanes to accommodate bicycles. This project included complex details of drainage structures to accommodate existing utilities and traffic control.  The RRR Report included an evaluation speed (45 mph) versus design speed (50 mph) as a means to meet FDOT requirements and control schedule and costs.  The project also included lighting adjustments, utility coordination through the District Utility Coordinator, Naval Air Station Jacksonville coordination and railroad coordination with the District Railroad coordinator.

SR 200 Alachua County

FDOT District Two

Two separate mill and resurface projects totaling 7.2 miles of rural and urban roadway.  Improvements include updates to the railing and approaches to two existing bridges. This project included complex details for the superelevation transitions approaching and departing from the bridges. Additionally a Design Variation was obtained for shoulder pavement width and Design Exceptions were obtained for minimum vertical curve and minimum sight distance. A Design Exception was also obtained for vertical clearance over the CSX railroad. 

SR 528/ Innovation Way Design Build Criteria Package, Orange County

Central Florida Expressway Authority

TBG is responsible for developing the design/build criteria package for a new interchange consisting of the addition of five ramps (including one loop ramp) on/off SR 528, two ramp bridges over the proposed All Aboard Florida (AAF) railway, and the overpass of Innovation Way over SR 528 and the AAF track. TBG is responsible for the  design of the horizontal and vertical geometry for all ramps, designing superelevation transitions for reverse curves, layout of MSE wall locations, layout of resurfacing limits along SR 528 and demolition of existing ramps at Monument Parkway.
