Hendry County, Florida, was looking for a consultant to provide construction plans to improve CR 832/Sonora Avenue, from W.C. Owen Avenue to Davidson Road, in Clewiston. The county needed to extend the roadway’s service life and improve the cross slopes along the corridor.
The county selected Erdman Anthony to address the drainage improvements and ride characteristics. Our firm provided plans for milling and resurfacing with variable milling depths to the existing two-lane, undivided rural roadway.
The project improvements included highway-sign replacements and new pavement markings to meet current standards, minor bridge repairs to restore the expansion joints along low-level bridge No. 070054 over the Industrial Canal, guardrail replacement at the bridge approaches, sidewalk repairs and ADA upgrades at the crosswalks, and railroad coordination and permitting with the South Central Florida Express Railroad.
Construction is expected to begin in the summer of 2020.
