Projects Overview

We take pride in our work!

We hold valuable years of proven experience working on projects in transportation design, site development engineering and surveying. We take the very best ideas from our clients and merge them with industry expertise and environmental concern to create projects that are unparalleled. 

Some of the significant projects we've worked on recently include: 

  • Wekiva Parkway: Lochrane is working as part of this significant highway project. The new limited access expressway, approximately 21 mainline miles long, will connect SR 417, completing the beltway around northwest metropolitian Orlando. Acting as prime engineer, Lochrane will provide highway engineering design, utility coordination, and surveying services, as well as assist with Public Involvement efforts, on Section 3A of the Wekiva Parkway for FDOT District 5. The project involves the reconstruction of 2.08 miles of SR 46 from East of Vista View Lane to East of Round Lake Road in Lake County into a 6-lane divided urban roadway. This section will provide a raised median, three travel lanes in each direction, bike lanes, curb and gutter, and sidewalks. The scope also includes adding turn lanes at the signalized intersection of SR 46 and Round Lake Road. Additionally, grade adjustments will be made to Round Lake Road.

    In addition, Lochrane will provide substantial design survey efforts and subsurface utility location surveys as well as Utility Coordination as a subconsultant on teams for Section 3B, which includes SR 46 and the interchange at US 441 in the City of Mount Dora in Lake County, and Section 5, which is the CR 46A Realignment from SR 46 to 0.04 mi N. of Arundel Way. Finally, Lochrane is providing Utility Coordination for the line and grade of two sections. These sections are from West of Old McDonald Road to Seminole County Line and from Lake County Line to East of Rinehart Road.

  • SunRail: Lochrane Engineering is very involved with the progression of the SunRail Commuter Rail Corridor within Central Florida. This 61 mile project runs through the heart of Central Florida from Poinciana to Deland and consists of converting the existing railroad corridor into a Commuter Rail facility to help alleviate traffic congestion. Since 2003 Lochrane has been working on this project providing Professional Surveying and Mapping. In 2005, Lochrane became the LEAD SURVEYOR on the Initial Operating System (IOS) to coordinate eight (8) other survey firms involved in this effort. Lochrane has worked closely with the Florida Department of Transportation, AECOM as the Prime Engineering firm, and Shutts and Bowen, attorneys for the project. Lochrane also performed full boundary surveys, topographic surveys and underground utility location for the project and provided continuous coordination with all the team members, the FDOT, their legal team and the CSXT. The field work activities were overseen by Lochrane to ensure that full CSXR safety compliance was in place and Lochrane also coordinated all the review meetings of the survey work including the final boundary surveys being completed for the acquisition of the corridor by the FDOT from CSXT. In addition, Lochrane handled Utility Coordination for the Initial Operating Segment, North and South Segments and for the station sites. This has involved coordination between multiple utilities companies, municipalities, FDOT District 5, consultants and sub-consultants. Now Lochrane is part of the Archer Western/Railworks team, as part of the team with Parsons Transportation Group and Transystems for the FDOT District 5 Design-Build Project that covers the first 31 miles of corridor between Fort Florida Road and Sand Lake Road. Once again, Lochrane will be providing Surveying and Mapping as well as Utility Coordination services on this first phase of SunRail. In addition, Lochrane has begun working in the same capacity on the second phase of the final design for the Southern Section, which runs South to Poinciana.

  • Innovation Way Interchange at SR 528/Roadway Extension: Lochrane is currently working on final construction plans for this interchange and extension of Alafaya Trail to Aerospace Boulevard with connection to ICP Boulevard. The interchange will include a four ramp connection to SR 528. A new diamond interchange with a dual-lane loop ramp is proposed at the intersection of Innovation Way with SR 528.  Lochrane also provided all aspects of horizontal and vertical design, plans production, primary and secondary drainage design, signing and pavement marking design, WMD permitting, quantity calculations, and sub-consultant and client coordination.
