Daytona International Speedway Tunnel

Daytona Beach, Florida

Engineer:

Contractor:

The Haskell Company

Installation:

October 19, 2004

This access tunnel at Daytona International Speedway became a critical part of a multi-million dollar renovation project. A fast installation was necessary for the tunnel to be completed in time for the next major speedway event. One month after construction started, three massive hurricanes hit the area, flooding the excavated tunnel area. Crews followed a detailed project schedule and production of precast units was actually kept ahead of schedule, so the tunnel’s construction encountered no delay. Installation of all 86 pieces was completed in just under two weeks.

The concrete tunnel remains a critical component of the Daytona International Speedway, providing infield access to team transport vehicles and guests’ specialty vehicles. The tunnel also features a pedestrian walkway and accommodates a tram system during busy weekend events. The precast arch units provide the necessary vertical clearance to allow trailers, trucks and emergency vehicles to enter and exit the track even while events are in progress.
