I-95 Program Management

Location: Philadelphia, Pennsylvania Client: Pennsylvania Department of Transportation

JMT is leading the development and evaluation of accelerated bridge construction techniques as part of a comprehensive program of improvements recommended for the I-95 corridor in southeastern Pennsylvania.

Originally constructed in the 1950s, the 51 miles of Interstate 95 in Pennsylvania serve more than 160,000 vehicles per day.  I-95 roughly parallels Amtrak's Northeast Corridor and the Delaware River, and the freeway serves as an economic lifeline and a primary commuter corridor to and from Philadelphia. The interstate facilitates important connections to highways in adjacent states, regional commuter and freight rail, several maritime ports, the Philadelphia International Airport, multiple major sports venues, and countless businesses, industries and residential neighborhoods.

Unfortunately, I-95 also is part of an aging infrastructure that needs to be replaced, at a cost of many billions of dollars.  In addition, the interstate bisects some communities, and motorists suffer significant traffic delays. 

Realizing that the pace of current reconstruction initiatives was insufficient to meet the corridor's needs, the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation selected a team of consultants, including JMT, to develop and oversee a new, comprehensive, innovative and accelerated delivery approach to the corridor's reconstruction.

The program management team is responsible for evaluating, recommending and implementing:

  • Innovative funding solutions
  • Accelerated construction technologies and techniques
  • Development of an integrated asset management system
  • Comprehensive management and review of design consultants
  • Partnering with communities, railroads, utilities and other critical stakeholders
  • Comprehensive public involvement program

JMT, as a major subconsultant, is involved with numerous aspects of the program, such as:

  • Daily management and design reviews of a $900 million section of the corridor currently under design
  • Lead consultant in the development and evaluation of accelerated bridge construction techniques
  • Development of a construction management plan for the corridor
  • Utility coordination activities
  • Establishment of project sequencing and traffic control schemes
