A team comprising a Flatiron Constructors/Blythe Development Company joint venture and HDR Engineering has been awarded a $99.2M contract for the reconstruction of a 1.9km stretch of motorway in Winston-Salem, North Carolina.
The North Carolina Department of Transportation (NCDOT) awarded the contract for the design-build project — known as Business 40 Improvement project – along the Interstate 40 Business/US 421.
The scope of the work will involve the upgrade of entrance and exit ramps and the replacement of bridges on and over Business 40 with new structures.
It will also involve the replacement of existing pavement with new pavement, and visual enhancements to the roadway and the bridges.
Construction on the Peters Creek Parkway section of the development is set to commence in 2017 and be complete in 2018.
The full closure of Business 40, which could last two years, is expected in late 2018 or early 2019 upon completion of the Peters Creek Parkway.
