Immediately adjacent to the 17-wall SR429/SR414 Interchange Project we reported on previously, we are now working on 11 more walls (178,790 SF panel area) in the next project phase known as the SR429/SR414 Maitland Extension.
This phase includes five bridges and many challenging geometries:
- Two walls with modified panel joints to facilitate extremely tight 20′ radii
- A closed 40′ high box in a confined area backfilled with a conveyor system
- One temporary wire wall to facilitate traffic while a permanent wall was built
- One terraced wall with combined height of 40′
Graffiti-resistant Fractured Fin finish
In keeping with Florida’s preference for attractive, durable and graffiti-resistant finishes, Fractured Fin was specified for the 5′ x5′ panels. The finished precast walls and coping were later painted in warm natural colors to offset the green steel bridges.
