Ranger North Winds Down On Several Major Roadway Projects

RCN_US-27N_3941_3x5bA number of substantial Florida highway projects at Ranger North are nearing completion or have been completed recently.

The division’s I-4 widening job in Volusia County, which used computerized lift-and-move bridge-replacement technology, is progressing smoothly and should be completed on schedule in early 2007.

Excellent progress is also being made on a $19 million federally assisted project on SR-520 in Orange County. Ranger is widening seven miles of highway, adding a median and completing drainage work. The project is more than halfway finished.

Recently completed projects at Ranger North include a $27 million FDOT contract to widen I-95 to six lanes from US-92 to just north of SR-40 in Volusia County.

Also finished is a $25 million FDOT project on I-4 in Osceola County. Ranger widened a section to six lanes between the Polk County line and US-192. The contract included median and drainage work.

Ranger also has successfully completed a $6 million Osceola County project to reconstruct, widen and realign sharp curves along a portion of Ham Brown Rd.

In Orange County, Ranger crews have completed over $16 million in work for the county. Ranger widened CR-535 near the Disney center from two to four lanes. The project required significant coordination with utilities, as well as landscaping and lighting work.

Ranger also milled and resurfaced five miles of SR-528 (Beachline Expressway), providing median work, grading and traffic rail retrofits.
