For the two intersection improvement projects located on US 1 (SR 5) in Ormond Beach and the City of Daytona Beach, BES Inc will be providing signal and lighting design services. Lighting plans are being developed to accommodate the addition of turn lanes. Traffic was analyzed to develop appropriate storage lengths, signal phasing, and number of lanes for this intersection improvement project. Due to the projects being in the commercial area of the City of Ormond Beach and the City of Daytona Beach, community concerns regarding R/W acquisition are being taken into consideration to minimize corner clips for the signal poles while accommodating relocation of underground and overhead utilities.
SR 52 (I-75 to Emmaus Cemetery) Widening, Pasco County, FDOT

SR 40 from US 441 to NE 60th Avenue, FDOT District Five
Design services provided for this six-mile resurfacing project in Marion County include quality
assurance, computation book preparation, resolution of issues involving ADA compliance and general project management. Technical assistance was provided to manage the roadway design and signal loop replacements of this project that involved twelve miles; six miles included milling and resurfacing while the remainder of the roadway required replacing the friction course to improve skid resistance. An extensive field review with the City of Ocala
personnel was done to ensure proper loop replacements per FDOT District Five standards.
SR 590 at Old Coachman Road, FDOT District Seven
BES Inc was responsible for roadway and signal design for this intersection
improvement project. Modifications included the addition of paved shoulders,
upgrading existing guardrail, extending a box culvert, installing a closed drainage
system and replacing a signal. Coordination with Pinellas County, the City of
Clearwater, CSX Rail, various utilities, and the FDOT was critical to resolve design
issues associated with mast arm foundation and alignment of arms over RR right of
way. All roadway and traffic engineering was executed by BES Inc as a prime
consultant. A feasibility analysis was also performed to determine the best alternate for
adding left-turn lanes along SR 590.
I-95 @ US 192, FDOT District Five
Located in Brevard County, this safety project involved the addition of auxiliary lanes on both
northbound and southbound off-ramps to avoid traffic backing up into the interstate. Project coordination with an ongoing construction project on US 192 and minimizing construction costs to the Department were some of the main issues involved. Assistance was provided during the development of roadway and traffic plans, specifications package, and general project management. A new signal was constructed for dual right lanes off SB I-95. This project was completed in an eleven-month period.
SR 40 from US 441 to NE 60th Avenue, FDOT District Five
Design services provided for this six-mile resurfacing project in Marion County included quality assurance, computation book preparation, resolution of issues involving ADA compliance, and general project management. Technical assistance was provided to manage the roadway design and signal loop replacements of this project that involved twelve miles; six miles included milling and resurfacing while the remainder of the roadway required replacing the friction course to improve skid resistance.

I-275 (SR 93) - 62nd Avenue to Gandy Boulevard, FDOT District Seven
BES Inc provided signalization, signing and pavement marking design services on
this project. This project involved the concrete rehabilitation of I-275 and asphalt
pavement rehabilitation along Gandy Boulevard. A signal was replaced at the northbound exit ramp in the I-275 / Gandy Blvd interchange. Due to the skew of the ramp, a diagonal mast arm was used to signalize two approaches. Guide signs (ground
mounted and overhead panels) were replaced along with the upgrade of pavement markings to standards. Two traffic monitoring sites were replaced due to milling/pavement rehabilitation operations.
Manatee County ATMS RFP, FDOT District One
Field review, signalized intersection upgrades, and miscellaneous support services were provided for the development of a Design-Build Requirements Package for the construction of the Manatee County Advanced Traffic Management System (ATMS) involving over 225 signalized intersections, 53 CCTV locations and an upgraded communications system.
Traffic Impact Studies
BES Inc has performed numerous Traffic Impact Studies for different
types of developments ranging from single-family subdivisions to mixed-
use retail/office parks. In-house staff collected data such as turning
movement counts at critical intersections and approach counts at
arterials. The data was analyzed using SYNCHRO and recommendations
provided to maintain adequate Levels of Service in the surrounding
SR 60 - Woodlyne Blvd to Brevard Avenue, FDOT District Seven
For this urban milling and resurfacing project in Hillsborough County, BES Inc
provided design services in roadway and traffic disciplines. Pavement Design,
Typical Section Package, and Project Design Report were some of the roadway
tasks executed under this project. Signing, pavement marking, loop replacement,
and traffic monitoring site design were provided on this urban arterial in downtown
Tampa. Extensive coordination between the Department Railroad Coordinator and
with the City of Tampa Traffic Signal section was undertaken to design pedestrian
features at Willow Avenue due to the presence of a railroad.
SR 50 - CR 471 to Rital-Croom Road, FDOT District Seven
For this rural milling and resurfacing project in Hernando County, BES Inc
provided services for traffic engineering. Signing, pavement marking, loop
replacement, and traffic monitoring site design were designed for this 5-mile
project. Since detailed topography was surveyed only for a section of the project,
plans were developed utilizing field reviews, analyzing existing plans, and site
measurements. Plans utilized a combination of plan sheets, tables, typical details,
and sign line diagrams to convey construction requirements to the contractor.
SR 580 - Florida Avenue to 56th Street, Hillsborough County, FDOT District Seven
Seven span wire signals were replaced with mast arms along this
arterial adjacent to Busch Gardens. The presence of utilities, tight R/W,
and heavy traffic were challenging factors that were considered during the
design of mast arms.
