Project Description:

The project included construction of four new bridges, MSE walls, mainline railroad, new drainage, water and sewer installations, 84” pipe culvert, ponds, signals and lighting, landscaping and concurrent utility relocations. At the east end of I-595, the Eller Drive Overpass was constructed to carry vehicles entering Port Everglades over two new railroad tracks that expand into a new Intermodal Container Transfer Facility (ICTF) rail yard in Port Everglades.

Two bridges are twin bridges comprised of 9 spans of Bulb-T girders each combined with a single 200-foot steel span over the railroad tracks, a third bridge is a single span with Type III AASHTO girders, and the fourth has two continuous spans of curved steel plate girders. The bridge approaches are comprised of 18 MSE Walls. The project includes removal of existing tracks and construction of 2100 ft. of new tracks for FEC Railroad. Drainage installation includes nearly 100 structures and two miles of pipe ranging in size from 18” to 84”. Water mains throughout the project were replaced with over a mile of 16” concrete lined pipe along with connections to hydrants and customers. Project included two new signalized intersections and modifications to another with new mast arms and controller cabinets. Lighting was added to the corridor with high mast and conventional lighting. Landscaping was installed throughout the project.

The Eller Drive/ICTF project has received numerous awards including the Prudential 2012, 2013 and 2014 Davis Productivity Awards, the 2016 Major Project Award from FICE/FDOT – and the very competitive People’s Choice Award in the AASHTO 2016 America’s Transportation Award competition.
