FDOT District 2, SR 5/US 1/Ponce de Leon Boulevard from North City Gates to Cross Ridge Drive, St. Johns County, FL
|Client||FDOT District 2|
Protean Design Group is currently leading the milling and resurfacing of approximately 14.38 miles of SR 5/US 1/Ponce de Leon Boulevard in St. Augustine, FL. The main intent of this project is to preserve the roadway integrity and address safety issues. This segment of SR 5/US 1/Ponce de Leon Boulevard is classified as an urban and rural principal arterial and serves as a hurricane evacuation route. Throughout the project limits, from North City Gates to Cross Ridge Drive, the roadway typical section consists of a four-lane divided roadway with 11-foot travel lanes in the southbound direction and 12-foot travel lanes in the northbound direction, 6-foot inside shoulders (2-foot paved), 8-foot outside shoulders (5-foot paved), and a 30-foot median.
Additional design components consist of minor widening at all right turn lanes to accommodate bicycle keyhole lanes, minor drainage, lighting, signals, signing and pavement markings, design survey, subsurface utility exploration (SUE), permitting, and coordination with multiple agencies.
The project will be advertised for construction as a ‘goes with’ project with two separate plan components prepared by other consultant firms, which include sidewalk and median drainage improvements.
