In September of 2016, CGA’s West Palm Beach Engineering team closed out the Jupiter A-1-A Bike Lane Project. The contract, which was awarded in 2010, included civil engineering, subsurface utility investigation, street lighting, construction engineering and inspections, and landscape architecture. The project was split into two construction contracts, to facilitate the minimization of disruptions to the seasonal traffic conditions and the LAP funding schedule. The first phase comprised of underground improvements including the burial of overhead power lines for the full 0.7-mile length of the project, constructing a drainage backbone system to serve not only the roadway but the entire 40-plus acre Jupiter Inlet Village, and replacing the 10” asbestos cement water main.
The second phase, which was LAP funded, comprised of the bike lanes and streetscape improvements included milling, resurfacing and overlay of the 0.7 mile of roadway, the addition of 5-foot bike lanes, color treated permeable concrete sidewalks on both sides of the roadway, decorative pavement features, raised pedestrian crossings, on-street parking, solar-powered flashing crossing signs, solar-powered speed indicator signs, signing and pavement marking layout and improvements to the turn lanes at both ends of the project. Other improvements included extensive landscaping, pedestrian level street lighting and new underground fiber optic conduits for the Town’s use.
Thomas Driscoll, Director of Engineering Parks & Public Works, commended CGA for their efforts throughout this contract, “They were definitely partners of the town and did tremendous work.”
