Dixie Highway Flyover Design-Build
Kimley-Horn was selected by the Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT) District Four to provide roadway and bridge design services as part of the Dixie Highway Flyover design-build project at the Broward/Palm Beach County line in southeast Florida.
The project consisted of a new roadway and bridge to connect Dixie Highway from north of Hillsboro Road along the west side of Florida East Coast Railroad (FEC RR), over FEC RR and Hillsboro Canal, and into existing Dixie Highway north of Hillsboro Canal and east of the FEC RR tracks. In addition to roadway design consultation, Kimley-Horn provided structural design services for a 1400-foot-long, eight-span, s-curved, steel box girder bridge over Hillsboro Canal and FEC RR; a simple AASHTO beam three-span bridge over the canal, a steel box girder pedestrian bridge; and associated retaining walls.
Kimley-Horn also designed the decorative brick paver intersection design of the 2nd Avenue and 2nd Street intersection in front of Deerfield Beach’s City Hall. Our landscape architects designed landscape and irrigation elements for the project that required close coordination with Broward County, Palm Beach County, City of Deerfield Beach, and the City of Boca Raton.
This was a fast-track, design-build project with only seven months allotted to complete the design and release the project to construction.
