2020 FTBA ‘Best in Construction’ Award Winner!

St. John’s Heritage Parkway SE design-build project was selected as a 2020 FTBA ‘Best in Construction’ Award Winner!
LTG was part of the design team that received the Best in Construction Award in the category Design-Build for collaboration on the I-95 Diverging Diamond Interchange at St. Johns Heritage Parkway project in Brevard County, District 5.

St. John’s Heritage Parkway SE design-build project is part of an important, multi-faceted extension and expansion of this vital transportation artery in Brevard County. The joint design team produced a new interchange configuration after the county’s originally proposed partial cloverleaf was deemed unsafe for pedestrians and bicyclists. The new vision, a diverging diamond interchange (DDI), will be Brevard County’s first. LTG provided the study that converted the original Parclo concept into a DDI, we also provided the traffic signal design, lighting design, and ITS design for the project. We are proud to be part of WGI’s award winning team!
