City of Tallahassee
Genesis was selected by the City of Tallahassee in 2007 to complete a PD&E Study for the 1.3 mile FAMU Way Corridor. A portion of the project area consists of an existing roadway that is the northern boundary of Florida A&M University, along with a section of new roadway that parallels Segment 3 of Capital Cascades Trail. The objective of the project is to relieve traffic congestion that is expected to increase along other east/west routes just south of the State Capitol due to continuing growth around the FAMU and Florida State University campuses. Genesis completed the study in 2010 and was subsequently asked to participate as a team member with the City to complete the design and permitting of the project.
FAMU Way is divided into two segments; existing roadway and new roadway. City staff is completing the roadway design and Genesis is serving in a support role to the City's Project Manager to complete stormwater management facilities, several bypass conveyance systems, and a pond modeling analysis. Both Phases required close coordination with permitting agencies, including NWFWMD, FDEP, City Growth Management and the USACE. Genesis will continue to assist the City with the design and permitting required for Phase III/completion of the project.
