South Shore Boulevard from Pierson Road to Greenview Shores

Erdman Anthony (as Crossroads Engineering) provided highway design services for the 1.5-mile reconstruction of South Shore Boulevard. This busy two-lane rural roadway was upgraded to a four-lane divided urban arterial highway. Special intersection treatments were included at the Greenview Shores intersection to accommodate dual left-turn lanes for the southbound-to-eastbound movement. The roadway design provided for an interim four-lane and ultimate six-lane highway and allowed for re-use of the existing pavement.

The drainage design required correction of flooding issues that resulted when the existing roadway being built too low. Raising this thoroughfare allowed for access during major storm events and required rebuilding significant portions of the existing roadway. Our team coordinated with the water management district to meet new, stricter permitting requirements. In addition, The Village of Wellington wanted to relocate a water main and force main within the project limits. We designed the main for the Village and coordinated with Palm Beach County to incorporate the appropriate bid documents into the roadway package.

Our team provided surveying services including right-of-way sketches, field surveying for design and utility coordination, and soil boring location. This area is an active commuter roadway with significant additional traffic during the polo season. To accommodate these diverse needs, the construction was completed in the off-season. We completed the design in just three phases to minimize traffic impacts on this heavily traveled roadway.
