Responsible for creating right-of-way maps, legal descriptions for right-of-way takes, and right-of-way appraiser maps and coordination with appraisers. The goal of this roadway project included improvement to 2.4 miles of the Gandy Boulevard corridor by converting the arterial from a five-lane undivided section to a four-lane divided roadway with enhanced aesthetics and landscaping features. Other improvements included installation of a raised median, additional turn lanes, upgraded traffic signals, decorative lighting, pavement rehabilitation and reconstruction, addition of a shared-use path, Dynamic Message Signage, CCTV integration of the signalized intersections, and upgrade of the closed drainage system. The project required a detailed public involvement program, including creation of a Community Aesthetics Advisory Committee, and a formal public hearing. Survey and right-of-way maps were prepared for partial acquisition of 12 parcels.
