Connelly & Wicker was the designer of the new 6.1-mile multi-purpose path along SR A1A on Amelia Island for the Florida Department of Transportation. The combined pedestrian and bicycle path began at the Amelia Island State Park at the southern tip of the island and ended at Peter’s Point Park north of the Ritz-Carton development. The ten-foot-wide asphalt path required a design that met ADA requirements and minimized tree removals. The project included the design of a mid-block crossing utilizing a solar powered rapid rectangular flashing beacon (RRFB).The design included pavement design, earthwork, drainage structure modifications, utility coordination, signing and pavement marking, a public meeting and wetland permitting.
