PennDOT I-95 Design and Program Management
Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT) has begun a major effort to rebuild a 5-mile section of I-95 that runs along the eastern boundary of Philadelphia. This is the first stage in the eventual rehabilitation of the entire 51-mile I-95 corridor in Pennsylvania. To help in this effort, PennDOT selected CH2M HILL for a 10-year design management contract to assist in managing the design and to develop innovative strategies for funding and delivery of this entire corridor rehabilitation. This is a unique scope whose depth and breadth has never been done by another state Department of Transportation.
The corridor links the state’s most populous city, Philadelphia, with a tri-state metropolitan region, and the entire east coast of the nation. The I-95 corridor encompasses an array of land uses, neighborhoods and transportation facilities. I-95 is also a critical intermodal highway, linking transportation facilities including ports and airports, local fixed-route transit lines and services, regional and national passenger and freight rail, local residential streets and major arterials.
Envision is a sub-consultant to CH2M Hill and is conducting a needs assessment which will define the parameters for Project Control for the entire project. The project is in the early stages of development; currently there are analysis being performed relative to environmental issues, funding sources, critical project scheduling, and sequence of actual construction on various sections of I-95. This project is valued at $10 billion and is scheduled to be complete in 2020.
