GRAND LAGOON REPLACEMENT BRIDGE AND ROADWAY WIDENING OF THOMAS DRIVE
PROJECT DESCRIPTION

Metric provided project management and construction engineering and inspection of the new Grand Lagoon Replacement Bridge and Roadway Widening of Thomas Drive (one of the busiest tourist corridors in North Florida) from a two-lane to four-lane roadway with dedicated turn lanes, including sidewalk and enhanced pedestrian facilities, and the reconstruction of two signalized intersections. Construction began in September 2009 with the assembly of a temporary Acrow Bridge detour structure to divert traffic off the old bridge. Once demolition of the old bridge was complete, construction began on the new 250-foot long superstructure with three equal spans at 86’-3”. The type of construction was a cast-in-place deck supported by prestressed Florida U-Beams. The new bridge consists of four travel lanes with pedestrian and bicycle facilities, a 10-foot concrete sidewalk to allow pedestrians to cross under the bridge, bridge lighting for aesthetics, and safety and navigational lights. The new bridge has a minimal horizontal clearance of 69’-4” and a minimal vertical clearance of 18’-0” for easier and safer access for boaters, while also allowing larger boats access under the bridge and to improve the water quality in Grand Lagoon. The roadway portion of the project extended from the intersection on North Lagoon Drive southward to just past “the curve” on Thomas Drive. The existing roadway was widened from two-lanes to four-lanes to accommodate the new four-lane bridge superstructure. This project also included the construction of a storm drainage system, underground stormwater management system, channel excavation, new MSE wall, and sea wall.
