STH 59Plans and specifications were prepared for the reconstruction of a 3.6-mile, 4-lane divided facility. The project's challenges involved constructing a safe and efficient four-lane roadway through primary environmental corridors, including high quality wetlands, while gaining regulatory agency approvals and minimizing environmental impacts.

A unique typical roadway section was designed, consisting of a narrow urban median with outside shoulders.

The project scope included the design of two structures, a bicycle/pedestrian path, a Type II environmental assessment including a contaminated site assessment and several environmental studies, permit applications, and public information meetings/public hearing.
