Sarasota County, Florida

Dearborn Street is an arterial connector roadway which is the gateway for the downtown Englewood retail-tourism center in Sarasota County providing an essential route for evacuation. Hole Montes was tasked with the design, permitting and construction administration for the revitalization of rural two-lane road into a scenic four-lane divided roadway with sidewalks, bikeways and streetscape accents. All of these elements were needed, but additional right-of-way was not available, and therefore these elements were required within the extents of only the existing 100 foot wide right-of-way. In addition to the roadway improvements – the project required a new bridge crossing of Gottfried Creek, and an extensive drainage system analysis to abate recurring flooding within the adjacent residential neighborhood.

Project funding was made available by Sarasota County and supplemented through a LAP grant by FDOT. Additionally, decorative lighting costs were subsidized by the Englewood CRA. As such, the project required close coordination with all of the team members, as well as the many utilities affected by the development, such as COMCAST, TECO, FPL, Sprint and Englewood Water District. The project was completed in August 2008, and was completed within budget.
