Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport South Roadways Exit System
The Fort Lauderdale / Hollywood International Airport expanded and improved the South Terminal Exit Roadways in order to accommodate and safely handle the Airport’s anticipated future traffic growth. Bolton, Perez & Associates was part of the Team responsible for the development of the Alternatives Report and Design Build Criteria Package for the new South Terminal Exit Roadways.
BPA’s initial participation included development of the bridge structures for the Rental Car Center exit ramps connecting to the upper level exit roadways and the access ramp structure from Perimeter Road. Further development of the work included conceptual design of the upper level roadway structures including future tie-ins and exit ramp structure to US-1 for the expansion of the New Terminal 4. Coordination with new pedestrian overpass structure included determining the structure location and designing integral footings with the upper level structure. The work consisted of development of the bridge structures for several alternative designs, including construction phasing, cost estimates, and alternative evaluations for selection of the preferred solution. BPA was also responsible for the Bridge Development Report, 30% plans, and design-built criteria package corresponding to the Rental Car Center exit ramps connecting into the upper level South Terminal Roadways.
