Jones Edmunds supported Delaware North Companies with design and construction professional services for widening Space Commerce Way, a new signalized intersection, and a new multi-lane access roadway north from the new intersection into the Visitor Complex south Parking Lot 7, where a new parking plaza was constructed to handle visitor parking. The traffic signal design includes a specialized hinged mast arm to allow for rotation of the mast arms to provide clearance for large payloads transported from commercial aerospace facilities along Space Commerce Way. Jones Edmunds played a key role in compiling requirements for hardware transport and implementing solutions.
The project included a NEPA-compliant Environmental Assessment and Traffic Study. The design included signalization, roadway construction, parking area improvements, stormwater management systems, wetland mitigation, and site lighting. Jones Edmunds facilitated FPL’s involvement in providing power supply, incorporated their design standards into the project, and coordinated easement development.
Jones Edmunds’ experience, understanding, and prioritization of NASA’s institutional processes and key stakeholders helped ensure compliance and proper approval from authorities involved. Jones Edmunds spearheaded stakeholder involvement for collaboration, problem-solving, and ongoing status updates. Stakeholders included NASA Environmental, Engineering, Master Planning, Fire, Surveying, Traffic, Blue Origin, FPL, Space Florida, St. Johns River Water Management District, and US Army Corps of Engineers. Jones Edmunds provided construction administration, engineering, and inspection support to Delaware North through construction completion. This included compliance with permit agency requirements, certifications, and record documents. Jones Edmunds is now providing ongoing wetland monitoring as required by the USACE permit.
