I-95 Rigid Pavement Reconstruction DB

I-95 Rigid Pavement Reconstruction DB Overview

Miami-Dade County, FL

GAI, as a subconsultant, led the design of the roadway, structures, drainage, lighting, utilities, maintenance of traffic, and signing and pavement markings for this major FDOT District Six design-build highway rehabilitation project in Miami-Dade County, Florida. The project involved replacement of concrete pavement on 3.04 miles of the I-95 mainline and shoulders, on- and off-ramp improvements, installation of 5 emergency stopping sites in the median; railing replacement on 5 bridges, and the replacement of approach slabs on 22 bridges.

The emergency stopping sites were constructed by shifting the northbound and southbound lanes onto the outside shoulders to complete construction safely behind temporary barrier walls. Structures work also included load rating, wingwall modifications, full width expansion joint seal replacement at the intermediate bridge supports, and full width expansion joint seal replacement at the end bents. High early strength concrete was used for the concrete replacement, and work was performed via nighttime and weekend lane closures to minimize traffic disruptions on I-95 and expedite the completion of the project corridor.

This project won the 2020 Florida Transportation Builders’ Association (FTBA) Award for Best in Construction – Interstate, which acknowledges Florida’s most innovative, complex, and impactful projects completed each year.
