Stantec Selected as Lead Designer for I-64 Widening Project in West Virginia
Charleston, WV– TSX, NYSE: STN: Top ten global design firm Stantec has been selected to lead design for the I-64 widening project in Cabell County, West Virginia. As part of the $71.7 million design-build project, approximately 2.5 miles of the four lane Interstate will be widened to six or eight lanes and five overpass bridges will be replaced. Stantec will also lead extensive drainage design services for the new impervious area along the road, with the addition of bio-retention ponds and perforated pipe underdrains.
“The Merrits Creek to Barboursville section of Interstate 64 has faced significant traffic challenges in recent years, with severe and fatal accidents, delays, access difficulties for emergency medical services, and overloaded secondary routes through residential and commercial shopping areas,” said Michael Perry, Principal at Stantec. “Stantec is proud to support the West Virginia Department of Transportation in easing congestion, improving safety, and modernizing critical infrastructure for motorists who travel the I-64 corridor every day.”
As lead designer, Stantec is working alongside Triton Construction, Inc. as prime contractor, Stahl Sheaffer Engineering for survey services, and NGE for geotechnical analysis. The project is being led out of Stantec’s Charleston, West Virginia office and is estimated to be complete in October 2022.
A trusted expert in infrastructure upgrades around West Virginia, Stantec is providing design to reconfigure and improve the Hal Greer Boulevard in Huntington. This project will provide a complete streets concept to a main connector from I-64 to downtown Huntington. Stantec is also designing improvements to Goff Mountain Road in Cross Lanes, which has been plagued by congestion and traffic issues.
Nationally, Stantec recently announced it is leading the design for Florida’s $212 million Turnpike reconstruction and capacity improvements, which will facilitate future express lane and electronic tolling operations. Stantec is also an experienced design-build partner, leading design for the $1.6 billion Ohio River Bridges project that added two new crossings over the Ohio River in Louisville, Kentucky, and the $815 million expansion of State Highway 288 Toll Lanes in Houston, Texas.
