SW 54th Street

This project consisted of reconstructing approximately 2.5 miles of SW 54th Street for a City project jointly funded with ODOT. Work consisted of surveying, grading, drainage, widening, pavement construction, upgrading the intersection at SW 54th Street & Portland Avenue, and replacing the Meridian Avenue bridges over SW 54th Street. Challenges included upgrading the roadway typical section from a rural two-lane system to a fully urbanized arterial system with improved & expanded intersection configurations, reconfiguration of the Meridian Avenue on- & off-ramps in all directions, and replacement of the Meridian Avenue bridge while maintaining access across SW 54th Street to Will Rogers World Airport.
