SR-25/US-27 – Construction Engineering and Inspection Services

This project involved milling and resurfacing 5.8 miles of SR 25/US 27 from the Broward/Palm Beach County line north to MP 5.892 in Palm Beach County. This included the main through lanes, shoulders, auxiliary lanes, turn lanes, and median openings. The project also involved placing an Asphalt Rubber Membrane Interlayer (ARMI) under the structural layer of the northbound outside lane.

The project was environmentally sensitive because it traversed the Everglades. To safeguard the Florida DOT’s environmental concerns, Erdman Anthony maintained the contractor’s vigilance with respect to environmental compliance, which included avoidance of wetlands throughout the project.

Wildlife protection/avoidance was another environmental concern. Some of the wildlife present within the project limits included the federally protected wood stork, the endangered Florida panther, alligators, and snakes such as the endangered eastern indigo snake. The project was also located within the Florida Panther Consultation Area. No impact from construction activities was allowed in these wet swales and wetlands. During the project, if a panther, alligator, snake, or any other animal approached the construction operations, specifications required all construction activities to be stopped and the DCEC to be notified.
