Project Details

The project corridor was divided into five separate segments. Apex performed preliminary design, final design/bid documents, and right of way plat preparation for Segments 3, 4, & 5, as well as utility coordination for all five project segments.  The proposed improvements included grading, widening, and new construction to establish a four-lane section with a center left-turn lane. The design and plans were completed under an extremely aggressive schedule.

The utility coordination process involved identifying conflicts, preparing conflict plans, and coordinating with utility companies.  Apex was also a part of the public involvement process.
