Gresham, Smith and Partners is proud to announce the firm’s recent contract with the City of Tampa to conduct a roundabout feasibility study and concept layout for the West Shore Boulevard and Bay to Bay Boulevard intersection. GS&P will provide data collection and review, traffic analysis and a roundabout concept design for the city.

“Due to their proven safety benefits, roundabouts are becoming increasingly popular,” commented Jay Bockisch, P.E., PTOE, senior transportation engineer, Gresham, Smith and Partners. “We look forward to assessing the current traffic conditions at the West Shore Boulevard and Bay to Bay Boulevard intersection and developing a comprehensive plan to improve the flow of traffic and make the intersection safer for the Tampa community.”
 
As part of the study, GS&P will analyze existing traffic conditions and consider the future traffic forecast. After evaluation, the team will prepare a detailed roundabout design layout that takes into account pedestrian and driveway access and drainage, as well as right of way, environmental, utility and tree impacts. The firm will also provide public meeting support for the City of Tampa.
