Gresham, Smith and Partners announces the completion of roadway improvements along S.R. 173 (Blue Angel Parkway) and S.R. 30 (U.S. 98), two heavily traveled highways in Florida’s Escambia County. GS&P’s project team provided roadway design and traffic engineering services for the projects. Both highways were resurfaced and overall roadway improvements were introduced to improve the traveler experience.

“We enjoyed working with FDOT to improve the infrastructure in Escambia County,” commented Tyler Strickland, P.E., J.D., senior transportation engineer at Gresham, Smith and Partners. “Our team strived to provide a solution that will improve quality of life for residents and visitors along this stretch of roadway. Both of these highways see a high volume of traffic, and these improvements aim to make commuting easier for those in the Pensacola community.”
 
In addition to resurfacing existing travel lanes, auxiliary lanes and paved shoulders along S.R. 173, the GS&P team also corrected superelevation, improved overall drainage and provided signage and pavement markings. The additional improvements to S.R. 30 included new paved interior and exterior shoulders, drainage improvements, signage and pavement markings and signalization plans.
