Shored Reinforced Earth Walls Take on Challenging Terrain in North Carolina sticky icon

Reinforced Earth Product in Field

In western North Carolina, in the mountainous terrain of the Pisgah National Forest, few roads are straight, fewer are level, and the combination of straight and level is almost non-existent.  Highways thread their way through meandering valleys or along folded and twisting hillsides, defining the shortest distance between towns.  Some roads, like NC Route 194, just cannot avoid the tortuous curves and terrifying switchbacks imposed by an unforgiving topography, sometimes seeming to trace the alignment of a piece of ribbon candy turned on edge.  Though in places barely two la

A bridge born in 1929, as the Great Depression began, was reborn eight decades later as a result of the Great Recession.  Funded in part by a $20 million TIGER (Transportation Investment Generating Economic Recovery) grant from the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009, the Milton Madison replacement bridge carries 4 lanes of US 421 between Milton, KY and Madison, IN.  Originally constructed as a 2-lane, 20 ft. wide through truss bridge having only 16.8 ft.

In the early 1990s, developers had their eyes on several tracts of land in west-central Fairfax County, Virginia, planning to build shops, offices, restaurants, homes, schools and the other physical features of modern suburban life.  Simultaneously, the Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT) had been planning a north-south parkway through the western part of the county.  Utilizing the "proffer system", in which developers are required to pay for (or directly construct to VDOT standards) certain necessary infrastructure components in exchange for approval of their d

~~The New Jersey Turnpike, completed in 1952, is a major thoroughfare traversing the state from northeast to southwest.  From the day it opened, the Turnpike has both facilitated and accelerated economic development in New Jersey, in neighboring municipalities, and throughout the mid-Atlantic region. One of the most heavily travelled highways in the country, the Turnpike has an average daily traffic in excess of 500,000 vehicles.  Yet by 2032, traffic demand is expected to increase by 68% in the northbound direction and an astonishing 92% southbound.

MSE Precast Abutment

As the gateway to Maine's largest metropolitan area, Veterans Memorial Bridge (VMB) carries the Veterans Memorial Parkway and more than 22,000 vehicles a day between Portland and South Portland.  In 2009 the Maine DOT issued a design-build RFP to replace the narrow and deteriorating original span and requiring a 100-year service life for the new structure.  The winning team comprised Reed & Reed (Woolwich, ME; general contractor), T.Y. Lin International (Falmouth, ME; bridge designer), GZA Geoenvironmental (Portland, ME; geotechnical engineer) and R. J.

Rt. 52 Bridge Replacement

The New Jersey Department of Transportation (NJDOT) began in Summer 2006 the first part of its $400 million project to replace the Route 52 Causeway bridges and the roadway section between Somers Point and Ocean City, with a 3-mile-long structure connecting these seaside communities. This was one of NJDOT's largest projects and considered critical because it is the emergency evacuation route for Ocean City, NJ.
