Built in 1929, the railroad bridge carrying an active CSXT Railroad line over Lafayette Street in Tallahassee, Florida, cleared all vehicle lanes but did not account for the safe passage of pedestrians. To increase safety, the Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT) constructed a 55-foot-long, 12-foot-diameter pedestrian tunnel, which completes the sidewalk along Lafayette Street, as well as provides safe passage between office buildings west of the bridge and residential/retail areas to the east. RS&H provided construction engineering and inspection (CEI) services for the project.
