Featured Project: I-75 at Big Bend Road Interchange, Hillsborough County, Florida

Wey Engineering prepared an Interchange Modification Report (IMR) on behalf of Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT) District Seven, and in coordination with Hillsborough County, to document the safety, operational and engineering acceptability of improving the I-75 (SR 93A) and CR 672 (Big Bend Road) interchange in Hillsborough County, Florida. The proposed improvements are needed to alleviate existing traffic congestion, improve highway safety, and provide for additional roadway capacity to support growth and economic development in the southern Hillsborough County area. An innovative displaced left turn interchange design was developed and subsequently approved by the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) for this high-priority design build project.

Featured Project: 62nd Avenue North Corridor Multimodal Enhancements Feasibility Study, Pinellas County, Florida

Wey Engineering prepared a Corridor Multimodal Enhancement Feasibility Study for Pinellas County Public Works, Transportation Engineering Section to document the engineering and environmental impacts associated with implementing multimodal transportation improvements proposed for 62nd Avenue North from 66th Street North to 49th Street North in Pinellas County, Florida. The proposed improvements are needed to enhance pedestrian and bicyclist safety and better connect community services for non-motorized traffic along the 62nd Avenue North Corridor. As part of this feasibility study, the operational and safety benefits of the proposed multimodal transportation enhancements are quantified alongside the monetary costs of constructing the improvements to assess the financial viability/cost effectiveness of providing the proposed transportation improvements.
