The Tampa International Airport (TIA) Welcome Feature project consisted of the new construction of a 30-foot wide lit monument located inbound along George Bean Parkway. The site underwent significant modification including adding a new retaining wall on the west side of the median and raising the elevation approximately four feet. New landscaping and irrigation was installed and existing parkway light poles were relocated.
This highly visible project required heavy logistical coordination and maintenance-of-traffic (MOT) plans to ensure successful project delivery. This was the first project of the current Hillsborough County Aviation Authority (HCAA) Capital Improvement Program to be awarded to a minority-owned firm.
