Okeechobee Boulevard from E Road to Folsom Road

For this project the existing two-lane roadway of Okeechobee Boulevard from west of E Road to east of Folsom Road will be designed for the construction of a four-lane divided roadway that can be expanded to six lanes in the future. The roadway design incorporates access management requirements to determine optimum median opening locations and includes extensive drainage improvements to provide for water quality and stormwater attenuation. Alternative drainage concepts were developed to determine the most cost-effective drainage pond locations, taking into account current use, relocation impacts, permitting requirements, and site features including wetlands and site elevation. Key design considerations include side-street configurations and alternative concepts including roundabouts. Multi-agency coordination is required for design approvals, utility coordination, and permitting. The project encompasses two municipalities, two local drainage districts, and one regional drainage district.
