Genesis served as prime consultant for design of a new 4-lane urban arterial for Tallahassee. This is a 3.5 mile, 4-lane, divided urban roadway project with curb and gutter, sidewalk, bike lanes, retaining walls and signalization at three major intersections. Stormwater treatment included conveyance in a closed system, approximately 800 feet of a double 5' x 7' box culvert which encloses a portion of the City's Northeast drainage ditch, and construction of four Stormwater Management Facilities.

In addition to the roadway, a 1000 foot low-level bridge was constructed to span a wetland area. Screening walls and landscape buffers were included with the project to enhance the aesthetic quality of the roadway corridor.  Genesis prepared an interactive three-dimensional model of a portion of the project for use at public meetings. The computer generated model allowed residents and business owners to view the completed project for various locations along the corridor.

In conjunction with the roadway project, a new 12 foot paved bike/pedestrian facility was designed and permitted. This facility became a segment of Tallahassee's 6 mile Goose Pond Bikeway that connects Dorothy B. Oven Park with Tom Brown Park. The bike/pedestrian facility is adjacent to the roadway but separated by a landscape buffer. Special emphasis pedestrian crossings were required at each major intersection to maximize safety for bicyclists and pedestrians.
