The ongoing improvements focus on bringing the Woodlawn Road corridor up to the County’s Major Collector standards. These enhancements encompass lane widening, the addition of paved shoulders, installation of sidewalks for pedestrian safety, and vital upgrades to stormwater and utility systems.

While the current phase of Woodlawn Road spanning from SR 16 to White House Boulevard is in design, Matthews | DCCM has previously undertaken engineering design services for a 1.5-mile section of roadway near Lewis Speedway. This particular stretch, designated as a Major Collector road in St. Johns County, faced challenges stemming from high traffic volume and an outdated roadway typical section. In addressing these challenges, our team’s scope of services included a myriad of improvements. This involved horizontal and vertical roadway realignment, the incorporation of turn lanes, and enhancements within the Woodlawn Planned Unit Development (north). Additionally, turn lanes were integrated into the Heritage Park subdivision (south). The comprehensive approach extended to signage and pavement markings, meticulous maintenance of traffic plans, stormwater management facilities, and seamless collaboration with regulatory agencies for permitting.

Among the notable enhancements was the addition of a pedestrian bridge/walkway over wetlands, showcasing our team’s commitment to innovative solutions that not only improve road infrastructure but also consider ecological and community aspects.

Matthews | DCCM’s involvement in the Woodlawn Road corridor improvements exemplifies our dedication to elevating transportation infrastructure standards. The ongoing and completed projects underscore the firm’s expertise in addressing diverse challenges while adhering to the highest engineering and regulatory standards, ensuring a safer and more efficient roadway for the St. Johns County community.
