Roundabout at CR 561 and CR 455

BESH was contracted to provide survey, design, utility coordination and permitting for the Roundabout Design at the intersection of CR 561 and CR 455 in Lake County. This was FDOT LAP project, FPN #429606-1-58-01. This project involved an intersection that originally consisted of four ramps and a typical tee crossing and changing it by designing a large Roundabout. The Roundabout Design consisted of transition lanes, curb and gutter section, rural section, stormwater management system, signing and pavement markings, and grading. Associated with this design, BESH was the Project Lead and managed the Landscape Architect and ITS Engineer and provided all coordination between Design Team and Client, Lake County. The Project went through FDOT Electronic Review Comments and BESH coordinated all design concerns directly with FDOT and addressed all ERC comments at 60%, 90%, 100%, and Final Design Phase.

Prior to the roundabout, that intersection had a 61% higher crash rate than the Florida state average. Since the roundabout opened last July, there have been no reported crashes.
