Locklear & Associates provided civil engineer services for the design and permitting of a new fire station for the Alachua County Fire Rescue Department in Waldo, Florida. The proposed development consists of clearing the undeveloped site and construction of a 6,000 sq. ft.. fire station facility, parking and driveway connections to US 301 and King Street, utilities and a dry detention storm water management system. A Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT) Driveway permit was required for the driveway connection to US 301 and proposed modifications to the existing turn lane median on US 301.

The proposed modifications include an opening in the median to allow emergency vehicles to only turn left onto the southbound lane of US 301, demolition of existing driveway connection, demolition and construction of surrounding sidewalk. The proposed connection was designed in accordance with FDOT standards; typical pavement sections within FDOT right-of-way, signage, marking, drainage, and maintenance of traffic.
