The 2004 season had numerous unusual occurrences. Florida was hit by four hurricanes: Hurricane Charley, Frances, Ivan, and Jeanne. It was the first time four hurricanes have hit one state in one season since 1886. This project consisted of the recovery efforts after the devastation brought by Hurricanes Charley, Frances and Jeanne. District One includes twelve (12) counties and 11,700 square miles. Services include the management of the monitoring, documentation and removal of over one million cubic yards of debris in twelve counties.

  • Minor repair work and permanent restoration
  • Over 125,000 signs were repaired totaling $13.6 Million
  • Over 320 signalized intersections were repaired totaling $4.9 Million
  • Nearly 1 Million Cubic Yards of debris removed = $17 Million

CSA Group project management efforts during this emergency were recognized by the Florida Institute of Consulting Engineers with the prestigious Excellence in Project Management Award.

CSA Group expedited assembling a workforce that eventually reached a total of 250 qualified technicians and inspectors overseeing the work performed by 20 contractors. We reached out to our partners in the consulting industry, with over 15 firms working with us in this extensive program. The customized databases prepared for this effort allowed us to provide reporting to the Department on a daily and weekly basis, providing information on the progress of the work and the total expenditures to date and anticipated through completion. We assisted the Department in the preparation and documentation of DDIR’s and PW’s for the Federal Highway Administration and Federal Emergency Management Agency, respectively.
