Florida's Turnpike Enterprise

President's Award
Award Year: 

Submission Category: Social Responsibility
First and foremost, the Turnpike Enterprise recognized the permanent and potentially devastating impact that the Suncoast Parkway could have on the natural environment and surrounding communities. In response to this concern, the Turnpike Enterprise developed and implemented the ADG to control the design process and ensure that the Parkway be compatible with the environment. In addition, the Turnpike Enterprise recognized the opportunity for a multi-modal shared-use along the corridor and constructed a multi-use “linear park” adjacent to the roadway facility.
