On February 15th, the PRIME AE team accepted the ACEC/MD Engineering Excellence Honor Award on behalf of the I-95 Express Toll Lanes Northbound Extension – Clayton Road Overpass Replacement. The American Council of Engineering Companies/Maryland’s (ACEC/MD) annual Engineering Excellence Awards (EEA) competition recognizes engineering firms for projects with a high degree of innovation, achievement, and value.
The replacement of the Clayton Road Bridge is a unique and noteworthy project. It provides a critical link to MDTA’s I-95 Express Toll Lanes Northbound Extension by improving mobility, access, capacity, and safety along the I-95 corridor. With the incorporation of modern design materials to address future maintenance needs plus drainage enhancements to address local flood control, it also provides positive social, economic, and environmental benefits to both MDTA and the public.
Constant coordination with MDTA, other firms, and contractors kept the schedule on track, resulting in a one-month early bridge opening.
Congratulations to the entire project team.
