The Virginia Transportation Construction Alliance (VTCA) honored JMT’s work on the Jones Branch Connector in Fairfax County and Masonic Lane Culvert Rehabilitation and Stream Stabilization project in Henrico County as 2020 Transportation Engineering Award recipients.

Jones Branch Connector (Greater than $10 million – Other)

JMT provided design services to help Fairfax County and the Virginia Department of Transportation complete the Jones Branch Connector. The project was complex, as it involved widening an access ramp to the Express Toll Lanes in Tysons and connected across I-495 (which carries more than 120,000 vehicles per day) to a Metrorail station along Route 123.

Our design included widening an existing roadway and modifications to the HOV/HOT connections to I-495. The project also included one new bridge, widening two bridges over I-495, and utility work in adjacent developments.

Masonic Lane Culvert Rehabilitation and Stream Stabilization project (Less than $10 million – Other)

The Masonic Lane project began with the discovery of an oversight in the early 1970s regarding a 10′ x 10′ concrete reinforced box culvert not being included on Henrico County’s inventory of National Bridge Inventory structures. JMT studied the project site, defined the project challenges to be addressed, established project objectives, and generated a solution to be context-sensitive to project’s requirements for success.
