I-4 Ultimate Corridor Improvements

RS&H is providing Owner’s Representative services to the Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT) for the $2 billion I-4 Ultimate Corridor Improvements. This project is being developed under our Statewide Public-Private Partnership and Engineering Support Services agreement with FDOT and includes the complete reconstruction of I-4, construction of 141 new bridges, upgrades to 19 urban interchanges, and new ITS systems. Also included are 20 miles of new tolled express lanes, two eastbound and two westbound.

RS&H created a scale 3-D virtual model of the proposed and existing conditions, including traffic simulations at five major interchanges. Using the model, the team produced a multitude of materials, including a 15-minute movie that gives an overview of the entire I-4 project, numerous high-resolution renderings that were used to create presentation boards for public meetings, and animations of project innovations for future marketing opportunities.

The visualization developed for the I-4 Corridor Improvements is a milestone in large-scale transportation project communications. FDOT plays the video during each coordination meeting, as it “communicates in 15 minutes what would take any person two hours.” FDOT has even begun using I-4 to set a new standard of visualization materials for similar projects.
