Provided 3D animated fly through with narrative which illustrated the differences between current and proposed changes simultaneously on screen and before-and-after rendering services, video production services, as well as public involvement support services. American also provided design services for the production of all roadway, signing and pavement marking plans for this safety project which utilized federal safety funds. The safety improvements included installing median channelization to an existing seven-lane section by eliminating the center two-way left turn lane in a heavily commercialized area of east Tampa. Modifications were made to two existing traffic signals to provide protected left turn movements. Services included developing the geometrics, preparing project cost estimates, and preparing all electronic delivery elements. Additionally, American provided an “internet-friendly” version of the fly-through that could easily be downloaded from a website. American coordinated closely with the FDOT to address concerns raised by local property owners regarding access changes with the elimination of the center two-way left-turn lane. A public workshop was held to solicit public input on the proposed improvements.
