The American Council of Engineering Companies (ACEC) of Florida, in conjunction with the Florida Dept. of Transportation (FDOT), announced the 2019 Outstanding Project Award winners at the annual ACEC-FL Transportation Conference held in Orlando, FL. Our CEI Team was recognized with the 2019 Outstanding Roadway Project Award for our work on the SR 7 Urban Reconstruction project encompassing work on SR 7 (US-441)/NW 7th Ave. from NW 8th St. to NW 36th St.
This project consisted of the complete reconstruction of 2.1 miles of roadway within the City of Miami’s urban epicenter, while maintaining services to all businesses along the corridor. With SR 7 (US-441)/NW 7th Ave. often being used to relieve congestion on I-95, project completion was accelerated prior to I-395 reconstruction.
The project faced several challenges such as the replacement of 70-year old water and sewer lines, drainage conflicts, and management of pedestrian traffic. Our team went above and beyond to ensure that the project was completed on-time, while businesses along the corridor remained accessible and operational.
