This was Florida’s first public-private partnership (P3) project. A joint venture design-build project to widen 35 miles of Interstate 75, the project included 36 bridges — some that needed to be widened and some that needed to be demolished and reconstructed. This three-year, 1,200-activity CPM schedule was loaded with resources and quantities and required inflation and cost escalation forecasts for 36 months of material and labor. The FDOT incentive to finish this project early was a $150,000 bonus per day for up to 100 days prior to the contract end date. Therefore, the maximum bonus incentive of $15M weighed heavily on scheduling accurately to optimize the sequence of operations.
