Tallahassee, Florida - June 21, 2011 -
Blueprint 2000 is set to begin the third Design/Build widening project for Capital Circle Southeast. This project is being funded by the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 (ARRA). Construction work is scheduled to begin on Monday, June 27th. Initial operations will consist of clearing and grubbing on the south side of the roadway, installation of erosion control devices and stormwater pond excavation.
Improvements for this portion of Capital Circle Southeast include widening the existing two-lane, undivided rural road to a seven-lane urban facility. The 1.15 mile long project stretching from just east of Crawfordville Road to west of Woodville Highway will add curb and gutter, sidewalk, a meandering trail, bicycle lanes, a landscaped median, as well as significant stormwater improvements.
The contractor is C.W. Roberts Contracting, Inc.; Greenhorne & O’Mara, Inc., is serving as the engineering consultant and Atkins North America, Inc. is providing CEI services for the project. The total cost is $10.3 million, of which $8.7 million has been secured from the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 (ARRA) program. Additionally, $1.6 million has been allocated by the City of Tallahassee for Water/Sewer/Reuse Utility improvements. Construction is anticipated to be completed in the summer of 2012.
Upon completion of the project Blueprint 2000 will have completed nearly nine miles of Capital Circle improvements from just south of Apalachee Parkway to Crawfordville Road and from West Tennessee Street to I-10.
