9 Approach and Understanding  Engineering Analysis – Scope  Existing conditions analyses  3 alternatives each (minimum) for roadway and bridge  Cost estimation  Suggest PAAM to document alternative screening – Staffing  Jacobs – roadway engineering and fixed structures  Hardesty & Hanover – moveable bridge  AIM – traffic analysis  FTE – traffic counts

10 Approach and Understanding  Existing Traffic Analysis – Data collection – Existing roadway conditions – Smoothing of the existing traffic volume – Existing LOS will be calculated using HCS Key 8-Hour Turning Movement Counts 24-Hour Tube Counts 72-Hour Tube Counts

11 Approach and Understanding  Traffic Forecasting for Opening & Design Year  Historical Counts & TRENDS Analysis

12 Approach and Understanding  Traffic Forecasting for Opening & Design Year – Lee County’s approved joint Lee-Collier model – Model growth rates are compared to the TRENDS growth rate – DDHVS for opening & design year are developed by multiplying AADTS by the K & D factors

13 Approach and Understanding  LOS will be determined by using SYNCHRO/SimTraffic/HCS – No build alternatives for opening year – Build alternatives for opening & design year – Comparison of no build and build alternatives FromTo2-LaneLOS4-LaneLOS Lee/Charlotte County Line35,100F C Nalle RoadSR 7823,400F35,200C SR 78Caloosahatchee River23,400F37,400C Caloosahatchee Bridge26,000F38,100C Caloosahatchee RiverSR 8026,000F28,600B The following Levels of Services are based on Urbanized Areas: 2-Lane LOS D = 15,100 (Uninterrupted Flow Highway) 4-Lane LOS B = 31,400 (Uninterrupted Flow Highway) 4-Lane LOS C = 45,400 (Uninterrupted Flow Highway)

20 Approach and Understanding  Engineering Analysis – Roadway alignment alternatives  East – minimize number of parcels impacted  Centered – Intersection analysis and alternatives  SR 80  Marina Access  SR 78

21 Approach and Understanding  SR 78 – Alternative 1 – Keeps essential existing configuration – Additional storage vs. existing – Flattens existing curve

22 Approach and Understanding  SR 78 – Alternative 2 – Dual-left turn SR 78 to SR 31 – Facilitates left turn movement

23 Approach and Understanding  SR 78 – Alternative 3 – Allows NB traffic to flow concurrent with SR 78 to NB SR 31 single left turn – Could facilitate event traffic control at Civic Center

24 Approach and Understanding  Engineering Analysis – Access Management – Public involvement sensitivity – Access Class 5  2640’ full  660’ directional – Civic Center  Consideration for event traffic control  Possible temporary opening

25 Approach and Understanding  Engineering Analysis - Structures – Existing structure deficient – posted weight restriction – 3 alternatives – low and mid-level moveable, high-level fixed – Minimum 21’ vertical clearance moveable/55’ fixed – Minimum 90’ channel width – Coast Guard coordination and possible boat survey – Horizontal alternatives  Parallel existing alignment  Straighten structure

26 Approach and Understanding  Engineering Analysis – Structure profile

27 Approach and Understanding  Engineering Analysis - Structures – Move high point?  Benefits touch-down point on south end  Additional cost – New 3-lane structure  Provides truck access SB  Additional cost  Profile considerations  Safety considerations

40 Approach and Understanding  Traffic Noise Analysis – Changes to FHWA Guidelines (23CFR772) – Changes to Chapter 17 PD&E Manual (due 1/11) – Isolated Residents  Impacts  Barriers not likely to be reasonable/feasible – Bridge = perception issue Map in MicroStation Model in TNM 2.5

41 Approach and Understanding BB = 64.8 HL = 66.0 BB = 64.2 HL = 64.9 BB = 51.3 HL = 50.8 BB = 55.8 HL = 55.6 BB = 54.6 HL = 54.1 BB = 55.2 HL = 55.3 BB = 54.4 HL = 54.5 I BB = 51.6 HL = 50.8 Legend BB = bascule bridge noise level in dBA. HL = high-level bridge noise level in dBA.  Build Alternative Noise Levels - Compared noise levels of – bascule bridge (BB) – high-level fixed (HL)  Impacts (66.0 dBA or higher)? – At marina, a special use  Can it be mitigated? – Yes, with parapet or bridge barrier (railing) – technically not a noise barrier  Public perception, which bridge is noisier? – the same…difference <3 dBA is the same to human ear

42 Approach and Understanding  Environmental Analyses – Cultural Resources  Bridge – Over 50 yrs old – Historical integrity likely intact, but – Not likely to be eligible for FRHP – ACI doing update of statewide historic bridge inventory  Tribal Coordination – Contamination  Historic and existing petroleum and drum concerns  Further investigation and coordination required during PD&E – Section 4(f)  No impacts anticipated  Will perform SOS/DOA activities, if needed  Familiar with de minimis requirements and process

43 Management  External and Internal Coordination – Proven efficient and proactive communication style – Existing relationships with subs ease coordination  Quality Control – Culture of quality – Project-specific QC plan – Checking of subconsultant products

44 Management  Schedule – 17 months – Critical path – traffic

45 Management  Availability – Key staff all available and committed to project – Project manager >70% available throughout project  I-75 Sarasota PD&E complete – no other projects in D1  I-75 Hillsborough PD&E nearly complete – final documents submitted in August – Proven commitment and integrity  No ‘bait and switch’  We finish what we start
