FDEP Kenwood Boat Ramp Access Road, Parking Area, and Ramp Improvements

The Florida Department of Environmental Protection (FDEP) needed to improve road access to the Kenwood Boat Ramp in Putnam County. To accomplish this goal, Jones Edmunds prepared new design work, roadway construction plans, and supporting calculations for the following improvements:
  • 1,400 feet of existing dirt roadway improvements, ramp access, and parking areas
  • 3,200 feet of improved roadway access
  • Turn-lane improvements, including a northbound off-ramp and a southbound left-turn lane
Jones Edmunds developed roadway plan and profile sheets, earthwork cross sections, and signing and pavement marking plans for this project. We also supported with related stormwater issues and permitting for this site.

NASA Traffic Study of Kennedy Space Center Roadways

Jones Edmunds conducted a traffic study at Kennedy Space Center to identify any roadway and safety-related issues within the facility. We evaluated all major roadways, including over 42 miles of roadways, 60 intersections, and 1 highway-to-highway interchange. Jones Edmunds compared roadway design elements against the American Association of State Highway and Transportation Officials’ Greenbook and Roadside Design Guide. We also evaluated signage and striping against the Federal Highway Administration’s Manual of Uniform Traffic Control Devices. The study included obtaining traffic counts at all site entry points, determining the functional classification of each roadway, and establishing the applicable design speeds so we could apply proper design criteria. Study results included both graphical and narrative documentation of design deficiencies, site-specific recommendations to correct these deficiencies, a prioritized ranking of the deficiencies, and estimates of probable construction costs to implement the recommended corrections. Recommendations were classified as Immediate Priorities, Near-term Priorities, and Long-term Priorities.

NASA Space Commerce Way

This project consisted of designing approximately 2.5 miles of four-lane roadway with associated signalization and stormwater management. Space Commerce Way is west of Kennedy Parkway and connects Kennedy Parkway south of Ransom Road to NASA Parkway just west of the Visitor Center. The roadway provides access for non-badged persons traveling from North Merritt Island to the Kennedy Space Center Visitor Center as well as to Titusville. Jones Edmunds also designed, permitted, and provided construction services for a freshwater marsh created from an abandoned citrus grove that provided low wildlife and ecological value. Design of the freshwater marsh included elevations for three wetland communities, slope design, a vegetation planting plan, a remedial plan, and a monitoring plan. Several design elements were added to increase wildlife habitat, including deep and shallow zones, upland islands, hydrologic connections to adjacent water bodies, and snags for bird roosting. The wetland has undergone 3 years of post-construction monitoring. These monitoring events have demonstrated that wildlife use is high as evidenced by continual observations of fish, alligators, turtles, and various wading birds. Jones Edmunds also provided technical services during the construction of Space Commerce Way. The work included associated wetland mitigation construction and bidding services. Mitigation design included supervising, implementing, and monitoring a 2-acre created freshwater marsh and creation of a 56-acre saltwater marsh at the Kennedy Space Center to compensate for wetland impacts associated with the construction of the roadway. A critical design element was to develop a created wetland area that would not become dominated by Brazilian pepper. Jones Edmunds developed design criteria for the mitigation site by documenting vegetation, soils, and hydrology in an adjacent wetland, as well as wetlands dominated by Brazilian pepper. In addition, we helped NASA restore a 56-acre saltwater marsh that had been degraded from a mosquito impoundment.

City of Gainesville NE SAFETEA-LU Roadway Improvements

Jones Edmunds worked with the City of Gainesville to improve the movement and safety of traffic, pedestrians, and bicyclists in a neighborhood in Northeast Gainesville. We coordinated with City staff to conduct two public meetings to solicit comments and suggestions for improvements to five project corridors. We coordinated the meeting times and places and prepared materials for the meetings. These included mailers for the City to send out, presentation graphics, handouts, and comment cards. After the meetings, we reviewed and reported on the written and oral comments received to help the City limit the scope of projects. The projects required experience with local roadway design projects and Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) and Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT) procedural requirements, since state and federal highway funds provided substantial financing for this project. The work consisted of assessing project feasibility, analyzing alternatives, and conducting public and neighborhood meetings to determine resident sentiments. Finally, we helped with defining and scoping the projects, surveying, determining land rights and land rights needs, preparing preliminary and final engineering design, developing construction documents, and providing federal and state reporting and construction bid assistance.

NASA New Access Roadway (Galaxy Way and Space Commerce Way Intersection)

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.

City of Oldsmar Harbor Palms Infrastructure Improvements

The Harbor Palms residential neighborhood consists of 473 homes, and the infrastructure and utilities are estimated to be approximately 40 years old. The PVC water mains were privately constructed and maintained, but later the City took over maintenance responsibilities. The materials used to construct the utilities do not meet City utility design standards; the mains are inadequate in both size and material and are failing.

Many roadways and sidewalks are reaching the end of their useful lives, and some sections are exhibiting major distress from subsurface water damage. Also, the City wishes to evaluate extending reclaimed water services within the development and provide individual service connections to each home.

Jones Edmunds designed new water and reclaimed distribution piping with new individual service connections to replace the existing substandard piping. This included analyzing pressures and flows, upsizing mains to improve flows, upgrading water services within the rights-of-way, and analyzing and repositioning fire hydrants. The sanitary sewer clay pipes and storm sewer pipes were videoed and assessed to identify point repair locations. Sidewalks and roadways were assessed with the goal of abandoning the rear easement pipe and redirecting stormwater to the roadways.

The work included roadway plan production for the multiple roadway rehabilitation techniques. This included pavement evaluations, costing of rehabilitation alternatives, investigating high groundwater concerns, pavement design, and coordination with the client and their operations and maintenance staff. Sidewalks were rehabilitated and/or replaced and brought to ADA standards.

Transportation

Efficient, safe, and functional transportation services are a basic expectation of the traveling public, and our roadway network serves as the backbone for nearly all of our transportation and infrastructure needs. This highly visible network is often used by the public as a gauge for how our governments are managing their tax dollars. Yet ongoing maintenance and ever-growing capacity needs consume large portions of those tax dollars. Jones Edmunds understands pavement construction, maintenance techniques, and life-cycle costs, and how funds can best be allocated to meet those expectations. For us, it’s more than just about fixing a road – it’s about applying what’s best for the site-specific conditions and needs at the right time and the right way. It’s making sure our roads are safe and that the money for those roads is well-spent.
