Transportation planning is the confluence of many different disciplines coming together in the first stages of the development of plans, policies and legislative activities, funding, and project development. As such, our clients look to Infrastructure Engineers to apply our expertise in laying the framework for transportation facilities, including roadways, bridges, and multi-modal facilities. We partner with federal, state, and local government agencies to advance a community’s long-term goals through the development of strategies for operating, managing, maintaining, and financing the area’s transportation system. Our planning process is open, inclusive, and encourages participation from all stakeholders. Our comprehensive services for planning and studies include the following:
• Concept and feasibility studies
• Alternatives development & analysis
• Project development & environment (NEPA) studies
• Corridor studies
• Road needs assessments
• Public involvement
• Government coordination

Newnan/Hubbard Street Bridge over Hogans Creek PD&E Study and Replacement Design, Florida Department of Transportation – District Two
Infrastructure Engineers provided a Project Development and Environment (PD&E) study for a historic 1929 bridge replacement in Jacksonville, Florida. This study, in accordance with NEPA requirements, includes engineering, public involvement, environmental, historical, social/cultural, and human impact analysis. The current phase is providing all contract documents and design of the approved alternative to replace the bridge, but leave the existing architectural historic railing in place. The project is the first Minor Categorical Exclusion (MiCE) produced for the Florida Department of Transportation.
Poinciana Parkway from
CR 54 to I-4 PD&E Study,
of Transportation, District Five
Infrastructure Engineers is providing drainage engineering services for a Poinciana Parkway Project Development & Environment (PD&E) study in Osceola County, Florida. Engineering services include pond siting and preliminary pond design, which includes analyzing various pond locations and providing preliminary pond sizing for each roadway alignment in order to develop a selection matrix for a preferred pond site. The firm is also performing preliminary cross drain location analysis and design.
I-95 at I-10 Operational Improvements PD&E Study,
Florida Department of Transportation, District Two
As part of a Project Development & Environment (PD&E) study team that prepared concept plans for a design-build contract, Infrastructure Engineers provided structural engineering support for improvements including the addition of a right exit ramp within the I-95/I-10 directional interchange, modifications to the Stockton Street ramps, widening of the Fuller Warren Bridge from I-95/I-10 interchange ramp connections to just north of the I-95 overpass of the FEC railroad, widening of the bridges along 1-10 over the CSX railroad, Stockton Street and Kings Road, and the addition of a shared use path across the St. Johns River to connect the Riverside area with San Marco. We were responsible for conducting field reviews of existing conditions and reviewing existing structure data such as plans and inspection reports; preparation of concept bridge plans for the project build alternatives for Fuller Warren Bridge widening, the new multi-use path, and the three bridge widenings along I-10; developing required clearances, horizontal and vertical analysis, and bridge widening type for superstructures and substructures; and coordinating construction phasing for bridge structures with maintenance of traffic plans and concepts.
Complete Streets Program Implementation, Space Coast Transportation Planning Organization
Infrastructure Engineers assisted with the implementation of the Space Coast Transportation Planning Organization’s Complete Streets program, which included incorporating best practices for project implementation criteria and measures of effectiveness, screening candidate projects, and providing project priorities in a final report. Based on the project priority list, we provided drainage engineering for Complete Streets studies on three corridors in Brevard County, Florida: Hickory Street (Melbourne), Florida Avenue (Cocoa), and Hopkins Avenue (Titusville). The project included review of soils, floodplain, and USGS data; existing construction plans; existing drainage calculations; existing basin studies; and available permits. Our drainage analysis included delineation of existing drainage basins, patterns and outfalls; drainage calculations to determine flow rates as well as water quality treatments; possible accommodation of proposed concepts within existing stormwater management facilities; determination of suitable pond sites if needed; and design considerations for any new ponds.
Feasibility Studies for SR 524, SR 501 and US 192 in Brevard County, Florida
Space Coast Transportation Planning Organization
Infrastructure Engineers performed drainage analysis of SR 524 and SR 501 for the Space Coast Transportation Planning Organization. The projects included stormwater retention/detention requirements and wetland and floodplain mapping. For US 192, the drainage evaluation included drainage elements quantification to support long range estimating (LRE) and stormwater retention/detention requirements.
