Rueil-Malmaison, Hauts-de-Seine, France, 2013/12/18 - Hubbard Construction, a subsidiary of Eurovia, a subsidiary of VINCI, has been awarded the design-build contract for the Northwest Corridor project in Atlanta, Georgia, in the United States - VINCI.com.
• A highway project valued at €440 million ($600 million);
• 2 additional toll lanes, 48 km long.
This project, valued at €440 million ($600 million), will be implemented by a consortium led by Archer Western Contractors (Walsh Group). Entry into service is scheduled for 2018.
The project calls for the addition of 48-km (30 miles) of a new reversible express lanes system, which includes 39 bridges along the I-75 and I-575. The lanes are to be built with minimal interruption to traffic. The project features innovative design with lanes partly built on reinforced soil walls supplied by Reinforced Earth (a subsidiary of Freyssinet, a subsidiary of VINCI Construction) to limit infrastructure ground coverage.
With this project, the State of Georgia is launching its dedicated express toll lane construction program on major highways around Atlanta; the State will also operate the program and collect tolls.
