OHL’s Community Asphalt (CAC) is building and revitalizing Florida’s infrastructure every day. The company is currently executing highway and rail projects to relieve congestion, improve mobility, safety, and provide additional travel options throughout the region. From cashless toll plazas to road widening, rail construction, and asphalt production and paving, CAC is a full service civil engineering company with more than 700 employees and 40 years of experience.

Key projects include:

 Interstate 75 (I-75) Segment A/B

I-75 Segment A/B is the largest project ever awarded to Community Asphalt as a sole Prime Contractor and includes construction of new flyovers and ramps at the intersection of I-75 and Florida’s Turnpike. Scope of work includes constructing 15 new movements; building Express Lanes in the existing median, 3.1 miles of roadway construction along I-75 and 2.7 miles of construction along Florida’s Turnpike, adding new entrance and exit access points to the Express Lanes, and new ramps and 14 bridges to accommodate the new lanes along I-75 and the Homestead Extension of Florida's Turnpike (HEFT).

In addition, Community Asphalt is reconstructing the Miami Gardens Drive Interchange, replacing the existing Bass Creek Road bridge deck, installing Mechanically Stabilized Earth (MSE) walls, drainage, Sound Barrier walls, Intelligent Transport Systems (ITS) infrastructure, lighting, signalization, and a toll building as part of this project. Highlights include:

  • 2+ million cubic yards of excavation
  • 150,000+ tons of asphalt produced at the Miami Asphalt Plant and installed by Community’s crews
  • $234M+ contract value

This is one of three large projects which totals over $1B that the company has completed or is executing in order to improve mobility along the interstates of South Florida.

All Aboard Florida passenger rail project

All Aboard 800 228

All Aboard Florida (AAF) is a passenger rail project connecting the major population centers of Miami, Fort Lauderdale, West Palm Beach, and Orlando. AAF is owned by Florida East Coast Industries, LLC (FECI) and is the first privately owned and operated intercity passenger rail system in the United States sharing rail corridor facilities with a freight system.

Community Asphalt is laying the ground for this exciting new project. The company’s scope of work (C-10 project) valued at approximately $40M consists of bridge construction, grading work, retaining walls, fencing, clearing, and sub-blasting of track beds along 67 miles between Miami and West Palm Beach. The Florida East Coast (FEC) corridor between West Palm Beach and Miami is a part of a larger existing 365 mile system currently operating as the Florida East Coast Railway. The All Aboard Florida (AAF) project requires rehabilitation of the existing main track and construction of the proposed second main track to Federal Railroad Administration (FRA) class V standards (upgraded from class IV 60 mph max speed), allowing 80 mph for freight rail and 90 mph for passenger rail. 

Community Asphalt is scheduled to complete work on the project in late 2017.
