Erdman Anthony (as Crossroads Engineering & Surveying) provided highway
design and engineering surveying services for the design of this missing link of
Hagen Ranch Road through experimental farmlands in Boynton Beach. An
interesting aspect of the project was the addition of a roundabout at the future
intersection into the adjoining property.
The project was one-quarter
mile of a two-lane arterial highway in Boynton Beach expandable to a five-lane
facility. It traversed undeveloped farmlands, which required a small amount of
fill material (under two feet), connected to an existing bridge over the Boynton
Canal, and included the construction of a 72-inch culvert crossing at the L-22
canal. The drainage design involved exfiltration trenches, roadside swales, and
an off-site dry detention pond. These facilities were used to meet the
regulatory agencies' requirements for water quality and discharge quantities as
well as the county's own requirements for roadway flood protection. Surveying
services included design surveys, utility pothole locations, location of soil
borings, and counter sinking reference points to ensure preservation at this
undeveloped site where they were likely to be disturbed.
added a roundabout in the center of the project where the future entrance to the
adjoining land will be located. The roundabout will provide a pleasant entrance
to the property and will aid in calming the traffic through this area, which is
primarily residential. The roundabout was designed in accordance with the
Florida Department of Transportation guidelines. Since it is one of the few
roundabouts designed for Palm Beach County, it will serve as a model for future
The county required an accelerated design schedule; the
design was completed in only three phases. Close coordination between the county
and (Erdman Anthony) Crossroads project managers enabled the project to be
completed ahead of schedule. Additionally, the revision to add the roundabout
was completed quickly with only two reviews and permit modification coordination
being completed by (Erdman Anthony) Crossroads.
