Widening and reconstruction of three (3) miles of pavement and thirteen (13) bridge structures along I-95.
Improving access between I-95 and the local street system.
Improving highway signing.
The project has since added ITS structures along the corridor.
Susquehanna Civil, Inc. has been performing the following activities:
Geotechnical engineering tasks such as RSGER’s, administration of core boring contracts, core boring inspection, foundation design for bridges and retaining walls.
Field survey work for the entire project, including rail surveys and detailed information regarding all existing structures, ramps, utilities, drainage and signs. This includes surveying portions of I-95 mainline utilizing a mobile mapping solution.
Traffic engineering in the form of all required signing and pavement marking plans.
Right-of-way support consisting primarily of deed research.
