SR 417 Toll Facility
Dyer, Riddle, Mills & Precourt, Inc.
Orlando, Florida, U.S.
SR 417 is a main artery in the Orlando
area. Traffic at one of the main toll collection points had exceeded capacity within
10 years of the toll plaza’s completion, and
needed improvement. The project consisted of expanding the toll plaza area to
accommodate high-speed lanes along with
traditional toll facilities, as well as widening the roadway to six lanes for 12,300 feet
and resurfacing 14,300 feet of roadway.
Using MicroStation and Bentley GEOPAK
products let DRMP evaluate design choices
quickly and effectively—ultimately producing more than 750 drawings, nearly a giga-byte of data. ;
US60 Design-Build Project
Tempe and Mesa, Arizona, U.S.
The project included widening 13 miles of
heavily traveled interstate highway within
the existing right of way, widening six
bridges and building new ones, designing
and reconstructing two freeway-to-freeway
ramps, and much more. The use of InRoads
Storm & Sanitary allowed the drainage
team to use the roadway team’s digital terrain models directly when designing the
drainage. On this fast-track design-build
project, using Bentley software decreased
the drainage design time, which helped the
project finish ahead of schedule. ;
