AECOM awarded US$15-million contract for turnpike reconstruction in Pennsylvania

LOS ANGELES--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- AECOM Technology Corporation (NYS: ACM) , a leading provider of professional technical and management support services for public and private clients in more than 130 countries around the world, announced today that it has been awarded a US$15-million contract by the Pennsylvania Turnpike Commission (PTC) to reconstruct 4 miles of the turnpike mainline near Morgantown.

The AECOM team will provide design services involving all aspects of project delivery from preliminary engineering through final design, including environmental documentation, roadway and structure plans, hydrologic and hydraulics reports, permit applications, traffic-control plans, utility-clearance documentation and right-of-way plans.

"AECOM's dedication to delivering smart and creative solutions on current and past projects for the PTC positioned us well for this project," said AECOM Chairman and Chief Executive Officer John M. Dionisio. "We are driven by the success of our clients' projects and remain committed to finding the best solutions for PTC and the local community."

The section of the turnpike will be widened from four lanes to six, and the Morgantown interchange, along with six bridges, will be reconstructed.

The project is part of the PTC's capital program to maintain roadways and relieve traffic congestion along key stretches of the highway. More than 100 miles of the highway have already been rebuilt with a total design and construction value of approximately US$2 billion.
