Eller Drive and ICTF Project
TYLin served as the Prime Consultant for the design phase of the Eller Drive and Intermodal Container Transfer Facility (ICTF) Overpass project in Broward County, Florida.
The project transformed a congested industrial roadway to a wider, safer, more accessible, and visually aesthetic travelway for users.
The Eller Drive and Intermodal Container Transfer Facility Overpass project provides a direct connection from Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport to Port Everglades. A new bridge overpass over the Florida East Coast Railway also allows the railroad to function without negative impact on vehicular traffic.
TYLin’s design for the half-mile corridor included four bridges, 18 mechanically stabilized earth (MSE) walls, 240,000 cubic yards of embankment, two miles of drainage pipe, over 100 drainage structures, a mile of water main and force main replacements, concrete pavement roadways, and new railroad tracks in multiple, intricate phases of traffic control.
Other improvements included ramp construction, roadway realignment, signals and interconnects, signing and pavement markings, lighting, landscaping, and irrigation systems.
- All elements were constructed in a narrow travelway used daily by cruise and airport traffic, cargo and fuel trucks, and local business customers.
- TYLin oversaw extensive coordination with multiple right-of-way owners.
- TYLin coordinated with project teams on adjacent infrastructure projects, modifying traffic control phases to minimize impacts on all projects in the area.
