New Bridge and Roadway Pensacola, Florida

by Staff

Halff prepared conceptual graphics and 3D modeling to depict several distinct landscape designs and themes to assist FDOT with local government involvement and public outreach on a highly visible roadway and bridge project in Pensacola, Florida. The project includes the construction of a new bridge connecting Pensacola to nearby beaches, a fly-over to connect the existing northbound traffic, and roundabout to meld new and existing surface traffic patterns north of the Pensacola Bay. The fly-over was constructed over the roundabout creating a unique design setting.

Concepts were created to reinforce the new roundabout as a focal point, as well as to enhance the surrounding roadway to create an aesthetically pleasing visual transition into the existing environment. These concepts consisted of varying levels of complexities, hardscape elements, and colorful landscape palettes to compliment the surrounding area. Concepts took into consideration the various light and shadows that the flyover presented as well as nearby visual ques brought on by tidal influences of the bay to create designs that worked cohesively within the space.

Halff team members participated in extensive coordination with roadway designers and FDOT staff to incorporate various hardscape elements such as serpentine walls, boulders, ribbon curb, and inorganic mulches to further enhance the aesthetics and create a sense of arrival. Landscape and hardscape elements were carefully coordinated to avoid interference with FDOT safety standards.
