George & Associates designed a southbound right turn lane on SR 263 (Capital Circle NW) onto Tower Road. The new curb & guttered turn lane commenced at Corwin Drive and tied into the existing Tower Road intersection. This project consisted of converting an open-ditch system into a closed conduit collection system and incorporating a split-face block retaining wall to mitigate the required right-of-way and protect the root system of an existing 87” Live Oak. Design elements included drainage, retaining wall design, and utility relocation. Project management tasks involved coordination among survey and geotechnical data collection, tree mitigation and environmental permitting with Leon County Growth Management Department.
