We are pleased to announce that the Pennsylvania Turnpike Roadway and Bridge Reconstruction from MP 39.62 to MP 44.04 has been selected as the Engineers’ Society of Western Pennsylvania’s INNOVATION Project of the Year for 2019. The Pennsylvania
Turnpike Commission (PTC) completed construction on the final four miles of the project in fall 2019. With a total cost of over $200 million, PTC 40-48 (between the Butler Valley and Allegheny Valley Interchanges) was reconstructed and widened from two lanes/
direction to three lanes/direction and included numerous overhead and mainline bridge replacements, culvert replacements, and several walls.
The award was presented at the ESWP Annual Awards Banquet on February 6 at the Westin Convention Center Hotel in Pittsburgh. John Petulla, PE and Brandon Stodart, PE accepted the award on behalf of McCormick Taylor.
As the prime design consultant, McCormick Taylor completed preliminary engineering and final design for the reconstruction and widening of the Eastern Mainline Portion of PTC 40-48. Additionally, McCormick Taylor was responsible for several early action bridge
replacements, wetland and stream mitigation, and we also performed archeological investigations and permitting.
