Tolling - FL Turnpike Sunrise Mainline Toll Plaza Modifications
This Design-Build project included the construction of a double-span Sun Pass Gantry with Equipment Building, to the south of the existing Sunrise Mainline Toll Plaza. Several modifications to the toll plaza that already existed were made in order to permit this construction. Changes in the roadway lighting, signage, landscape, drainage, pavement markings, and tunnel reconstruction. Updates to the aesthetics of the canopy and administration building were made as well.
"The MCM + RS&H Team successfully overcame several unique challenges with this project. The plaza is located between three tightly spaced interchanges and included the construction of a completely new structure directly in the middle of the project, making it difficult to ensure minimal impacts to users during construction. The team met with several FTE units to develop a successful design, used a unique approach to meet a tight schedule, and handled these complex coordination efforts as if they were veterans. The phrase that comes to mind is ''they made it look easy." William F. Sloup, PE, Director of Planning and Production, Florida's Turnpike Enterprise.
