NW 5th Street Bridge PD&E Study, FDOT, Miami, FL
Vice President/Project Manager: Served as project manager for all aspects of the traffic and transportation analyses. The project examined the NW 5th Street Bridge crossing the Miami River in downtown Miami. Because the bridge was of an antiquated design, it negatively affected boat traffic on the river, a vital business concern in the City of Miami. Using license plate surveys, pedestrian/bicyclist surveys, origin and destination studies, multi-modal vehicle classification counts and conventional traffic counts, and parking demand surveys, data was collected to determine the need to replace the existing bridge with a new structure. Although the business community’s opinion was to remove the bridge entirely, the study revealed the local community’s reliance on the bridge to facilitate movement across the river. Based on this analysis, it was determined that a new bridge be built that improved boat flow along the Miami River but did not sacrifice local citizen’s access and mobility.

This project included forecasting the future trips based on the redevelopment plan, assigning the new trips to the roadway network, and conducting an impact analysis for eight cross-sectional alternatives. The alternatives included converting the existing SR-80 one-way pair to two-way roadways and the possible realignment of SR-80 away from the riverfront area. The estimated cost of the roadway network improvements is $29 million.

The study was commissioned by the City of Fort Lauderdale when, in response to resident concerns, all development in the Central Beach area was stopped. The primary issue considered by the study was whether SR-A1A could support the future traffic expected to be generated by new development. Because of the controversial halt to all development reviews, there was extreme interest on the part of both government and private landowners in obtaining study results in as short a time as possible. The entire study, which demonstrated that SR-A1A could accommodate the proposed additional development traffic, was completed in 90 days and, after review by city staff, was unanimously approved by the City of Fort Lauderdale Commission.
