Shrewsberry provided civil engineering design services to the Roadway Design Team on the $2.3 Billion Transform 66 – Outside the Beltway Project.
The I-66 Outside the Beltway Project is a public-private partnership between the Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT), the Department of Rail and Public Transportation (DRPT) and private partner, I-66 Express Mobility Partners, a consortium of Cintra, Meridiam, Ferrovial Agroman US and Allan Myers VA Inc and will include:
- 22.5 miles of new express lanes alongside three regular lanes from I-495 to University Boulevard in Gainesville
- Express lanes will be dynamically tolled to manage demand for the lanes and provide a reliable, faster trip – available to drivers who choose to pay a toll, and for free to vehicles with three or more people
- New and improved bus service and transit routes
- New and expanded park and ride lots providing convenient access to the express lanes and more than 4,000 new park and ride spaces
- Interchange improvements to enhance safety and reduce congestion, including auxiliary lanes between interchanges, where needed
Providing design support for the portion of the project from the Chain Bridge Interchange to the I-495 Interchange, including three interchanges, Shrewsberry was responsible for added express lanes, collector-distributor roads, drainage design, traffic engineering, traffic management, erosion control, attending weekly coordination meeting with the Owner, and Design-Build Team, and identifying conflicts in the design plans.
