SR 826 Palmetto Expressway & S.W. 8th Street Interchange

Project Description

Corradino provided the Florida Department of Transportation a complete redesign of this major urban interchange, including reconstruction of the ramps and widening of SR 826 to six lanes in each direction. The project also included eight new bridges and a noise wall. Controlling factors in the design were the close proximity of the Coral Gables Canal and the Tamiami Canal, plus the limited available right-of-way for stormwater treatment and disposal. A complex stormwater system was developed that combined infiltration swales and trenches, a stormwater network, exfiltration trenches, retention basins, and overflow to the canals within the project.
