IBT – a global construction company headquartered in Miami – has been awarded a $5 million contract with the Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT) for a road improvement project that includes addressing a dangerous intersection.
The project on State Road 64 at the intersection of Rye Road includes:
- multi-lane roundabout construction
- milling and resurfacing, drainage improvements
- lighting and signing
- landscaping improvements
- intelligent transportation system relocation
- utility work
“State Road 64 is becoming the next major highway in this area, and we believe the roundabouts are the best solution to slow traffic at this intersection – which is considered to be dangerous by the local residents,” says Daniel Toledano, managing director and chief operating officer of IBT of Miami.
“The maintenance of traffic will be a major focus for the IBT team in order to grant safety to nearby residents during the construction period.”
The company broke ground on the 13-month project in November. Near the ongoing State Road 45 construction in Sarasota, the project will employ 25 local workers at its peak during construction.
