Interstate 595 – I95 Interchange

Ft. Lauderdale, Florida

The I-95 Interchange was the largest single contract ever let by the Florida D.O.T.  This four-level interchange and adjoining structures consist of curved, steel trapezoidal box girders, in lifted assemblies of up to 280 feet long, totalling 14,000 tons.

Somerset produced the initial scheme and erection estimate for our client and upon contract award developed all procedures, lifting devices and stress checks for construction.  The bridges were planned to be erected with minimal disruption to existing traffic passing through the site; our sequencing and craneage specifications were planned accordingly.
