I-83 Exit 4 Improvements (SR 0083 SECTION 074)

Shrewsbury Township, York County, PA

Services Requested:
Surveying and Mapping & Right-of-Way | Structure | Transportation

Project Owner:
Pennsylvania Department of Transportation, Engineering District 8-0

Interstate 83 Exit 4 is an existing diamond configuration interchange with signals located at the ramp intersections with PA 851.  Due to the growth of the Shrewsbury area, congestion is experienced at the interchange during peak periods, and traffic exiting I-83 northbound and southbound backs up onto I-83.  The existing bridge carrying I-83 over Route 851 is structurally deficient.  The project will replace the existing I-83 bridge with a two-span structure that will accommodate the additional lanes on PA 851 and possible future widening of I-83.  The project will also implement a Diverging Diamond Interchange (DDI) and lengthen the I-83 northbound and southbound on and off interchange ramps.

As Part of the Gannett Fleming team, Susquehanna Civil is responsible for the following preliminary and final design tasks:

Lafayette Street Transportation Improvements Project

Norristown Borough and Plymouth Township, Montgomery County, PA

Services Requested:
Surveying / Mapping and Right-of-Way

Project Owner:
Montgomery County Planning Commission

Susquehanna Civil (then Pinto Engineering) was originally awarded the preliminary design phase of this project in 2001 as part of the McCormick Taylor design team. The projects entail reconstructing and widening the existing Lafayette Street in Norristown and extend it into Plymouth Township. It will also create a full electronic toll interchange with the Pennsylvania Turnpike. The Lafayette Street Corridor Project will significantly improve access to Norristown and its riverfront, providing a transportation framework that will spur economic development.

The land and boundary survey encompassed approximately 1 linear mile of roadway and rail. Portions of the Pennsylvania Turnpike mainline were surveyed at night. The preliminary right-of-way included approximately (400) properties along the corridor. In 2008 Susquehanna Civil was awarded surveying services for the final design phase of the Lafayette Street extension and interchange with the Pennsylvania Turnpike as part of the McCormick Taylor team.
