Fairfax County Parkway (FCP), a fast-tracked Design-Build project, completed a vital link to I-95 and helped address the traffic impact of the US Army relocating 8,500 jobs to the National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency (NGA) Campus East at Fort Belvoir North Area as part of the Base Realignment and Closure (BRAC) Program. The work included interchange designs, multi-purpose trails along FCP, grading for a future Park-n-Ride, geotechnical engineering, seven new bridges, one bridge widening, multiple retaining walls, two noise walls, two box culvert extensions, and widening of I-95 to accommodate a new exit lane for direct access to the NGA.

The ACEC/MW award is JMT's fourth engineering honor received for this project.
