Skanska team picked for $136m D&B road
The Commonwealth Transportation Board (CTB) in the US state of Virginia has awarded a US$136m (£86m) design-build contract to the Skanska-Branch/JMT joint venture.
Skanska-Branch/JMT was the low bidder for the design-build contract; the seven bids ranged from US$136m to US$214m.
The contract for the Route 29 Charlottesville Bypass covers engineering and construction services to complete the project.
"The CTB’s action today is an important step in moving this project to completion,” said VDOT commissioner Greg Whirley. “The Route 29 Charlottesville Bypass will alleviate congestion and increase safety along Albemarle County’s important commercial corridor and help ensure the viability of this critical transportation corridor into the future.”
The Route 29 Charlottesville Bypass project will build a new 10km, four-lane, limited-access roadway from Route 29 just north of the South Fork Rivanna River to the Route 29/250 Bypass in Albemarle County.
Acquisition of right of way and construction are scheduled to begin after completion of an environmental reevaluation process.
