Geotechnical general contractor Nicholson Construction has been awarded a $20M (£14.8M) contract as part of the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (Penndot) Interstate 95 improvement project.
Nicholson will be installing 1,759 micropiles for the replacement of a 4.8km elevated section of the I-95 project to improve and widen sections of the roadway.
The road currently supports approximately 102,000 motorists per day.
Nicholson Construction regional manager Mark Rothbauer said: “We have a long history of working all over the state with Penndot.
“We’re really happy to bring our expertise to the I-95 project, which is going to have a positive impact on so many residents and drivers in the Philadelphia area.”
Nicholson’s work is expected to be completed in 2020.
