17 July 2013 – Marlton, New Jersey and Philadelphia, USA – Hill International has announced that it has been awarded a contract from the Pennsylvania Turnpike Commission (PTC) to provide construction management services for the widening and reconstruction of a 15-mile section of the Pennsylvania Turnpike. The nine-year contract has an estimated value to Hill of approximately $17.1 million.

pennsylvania-turnpikeUnder the contract, Hill will be providing services during design and construction of Turnpike roadway and bridge reconstruction projects between Downingtown (milepost 312) and Valley Forge (milepost 326) in Chester County, Pennsylvania. Reconstruction of this section is anticipated to include two roadway construction contracts and two early action bridge replacement contracts for a total cost of approximately $480 million.

One of the PTC’s highest priorities is to fully reconstruct the Turnpike, removing all original pavement and sub-base and replacing it with an entirely new roadway to include new bridges, median barriers, guide rail, noise and retention walls and drainage. To date, the PTC has reconstructed more than 100 miles of roadway, most of it widened from four to six lanes. These rebuilt roadways meet contemporary engineering standards, including a wider median, gentler curves and grades, safer entry and exit ramps and reconstructed interchanges.

“It is an honor to be working for the PTC on such an important reconstruction effort,” said Michael V. Griffin, PE, Senior Vice President and Mid-Atlantic Regional Manager for Hill’s Project Management Group. “We are confident that our team will manage this project to a successful completion,” added Griffin.
