Project Overview
The project consisted of engineering design, permitting, and improvements to First Street and Bertha Street—an urban corridor in Key West. The scope included asphalt overlay, milling and resurfacing, roadway reconstruction, sea level rise analysis, temporary traffic control, signing and pavement markings, utility coordination, drainage improvements—including connection to a new pump station, installation of continuous deflection separator units to address water quality and backflow prevention devices—and public outreach. A context sensitive complete streets approach included the addition of bicycle lanes, on-street parking, sidewalk repair, Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) compliant curb ramps and reconstruction of an existing shared-use path. The project also included coordination with FDOT District 6 to obtain construction funding as part of their Small County Outreach Program (SCOP)
