Dewberry, a privately held professional services firm, was recently recognized for its involvement in Virginia’s I-95/ Telegraph Road Interchange and Mainline Reconstruction project. The project has been awarded an Engineering Excellence Award by the American Council of Engineering Companies of Metropolitan Washington (ACEC/MW EEA), and a transportation engineering award from the Virginia Transportation and Construction Alliance (VTCA).
Dewberry was responsible for preliminary and final design services for major interchange modifications at Telegraph Road, and widening of I-95/I-495.
The largest single design-bid-build construction contract ever awarded by the Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT), Dewberry has been involved with the project for the last 13 years. The project involved the widening and complete reconstruction of 2.5 miles of Interstate I-95/I-495 to alleviate traffic, as well as the construction of nine new bridges and widening of one bridge. Construction was completed in the fall of 2013 in accordance with established schedules and represents the final chapter of the $2.5 billion Woodrow Wilson Bridge Improvement Project.
Local communities and public officials openly lauded VDOT and the designer’s ability to improve the local roadway network while avoiding and minimizing impacts to commercial buildings and residential properties.
