This evening, the American Council of Engineering Companies of
Metropolitan Washington (ACEC/MW) held its annual Engineering
Excellence Awards and College of Fellows Induction. JMT's
design of the Fairfax County Parkway, Phases I/II and IV, received
an Honor Award for Excellence. The judging panel was ...
"impressed with the solutions that were reached to counter the site
constraints and the numerous ways the owner/client's expectations
were obviously exceeded. Your work ethic and ingenuity on
this project is impressive."
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.
