This project involves final design services to reconstruct Port St. Lucie Boulevard from Paar Drive to Darwin Boulevard from two lanes to four lanes, approximately 1.9 miles. The project will satisfy projected traffic demands, enhance corridor safety, and improve evacuation capacities. Major work includes roadway reconstruction, drainage improvements, and permitting. Additional tasks include survey and mapping, traffic/signalization, lighting, geotechnical, public involvement, utility coordination, environmental, and landscape design. The existing typical section includes one 12-foot undivided travel lane in each direction, and an open drainage system within 100 feet of right-of-way. The proposed typical section includes reconstructing the roadway to include: two 11-foot travel lanes, Type F curb and gutter inside and out, 4-foot bike lane, 8-foot sidewalks adjacent to the curb and gutter on each side along with an 18-foot wide raised median. The preliminary engineering design will include coordination with the City of Port St. Lucie, FHWA, St. Lucie County, St. Lucie County MPO, and residential areas and businesses.
