President Obama Speaks on Infrastructure and the Economy March 29, 2013 | 13:47 | Public Domain President Obama discusses his plan to create jobs by investing in rebuilding the infrastructure that powers our businesses and our economy.
As part of the “Invitation for Innovation” launched by the Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT), Owens Corning is collaborating on a project to build a bridge of the future over Halls River, in Homosassa springs, Florida. The initiative, led by the FDOT, includes members of academia, consulting engineers and the FRP suppliers and manufacturing community. This project is a proof of concept for complete next generation bridge design solutions of the future using a variety of forms of Fiber Reinforced Polymers (FRP) and hybrid structural elements. Corrosion and extreme weather can lead to collapse of conventional steel reinforced concrete and Halls River bridge deployment is example how to make FRP concrete structures such as piles, beams, decks, seawalls and traffic railings that dema...

Railroad infrastructure is the backbone of a safe and successful train service! The team has been busy building and upgrading from Miami to West Palm Beach! Archer Western has partnered with Brightline to upgrade the existing 66-mile rail corridor. Upgrades and improvements are happening at multiple crossings. A second track is being built to run alongside the existing tracks. This is called "double tracking." Site workers are driving piles to upgrade the rail infrastructure. Rail trains are delivering the rail for the new track. Each rail weighs up to 136 pounds per yard! Work along the tracks will continue for the coming months. Safety is a foremost priority.

Other than highways, what is the composition of Florida transportation infrastructure? | Lewis, Longman & Walker, P.A. | http://www.llw-law.com/ | Jacksonville: (904) 353-6410 | Tallahassee: (850) 222-5702 | Tampa Bay: (941) 708-4040 | West Palm Beach: (561) 640-0820 We've got a rich mix in Florida. When you look at the state as it extends into the Gulf of Mexico and the Atlantic Ocean, you can see we've got fourteen deep water ports that provide access in a way that not many other states can do. We've also got the burgeoning rail system in Florida. We've got Bright Line Rail now coming into Southeast Florida. We've got the SunRail Project in Orlando and there are plans on the books to connect these areas with rail. Florida also has something which is unique and it's a function of our hi...

How are transportation infrastructure and improvement projects paid for in Florida? | Lewis, Longman & Walker, P.A. | http://www.llw-law.com/ | Jacksonville: (904) 353-6410 | Tallahassee: (850) 222-5702 | Tampa Bay: (941) 708-4040 | West Palm Beach: (561) 640-0820 It's a function of the modality you're talking about, whether you're talking about surface transportation, that is, highways, or airports, or ports, or railroads. They're each funded a little bit differently. In Florida, we have a very robust FDOT and state appropriation program for highway funding, so DOT manages a lot of that money. We are less dependent on the federal gas tax than a lot of other states are. For ports, it's largely funded through the Water Resources Development Act at the federal level. There's always a requi...
