ICC Constructors Awarded Final Phase of Maryland's Intercounty Connector
BELTSVILLE, Md. – The Maryland Department of Transportation's State Highway Administration (SHA) has awarded ICC Constructors (IC3) an $89 million contract to design and build the final segment of the Intercounty Connector (ICC/MD 200). Shirley Contracting Company leads IC3, which also includes Clark Construction Group, as well as Facchina Construction Company, and Trumbull Corporation. Dewberry and Davis is IC3's design lead.
Contract D/E will complete the ICC by constructing the final segment between I-95 and US 1 in Prince George's County. The full scope of work includes designing and building 0.9 miles of four-lane, tolled roadway with a partial interchange and crossing bridge at Virginia Manor Road and a continuous flow signalized intersection at US 1 near the Muirkirk MARC commuter rail station. Additional work includes 0.7 miles of improvements to US 1, 2.4 miles of resurfacing on I-95, and construction of 2.4 miles of collector-distributor roads adjacent to the north- and south-bound lanes of I-95.
The IC3 joint venture previously delivered the ICC Contract C to the SHA. The design-build team was responsible for a 3.8-mile segment of the road between US 29 and I-95, including 1.9 miles of auxiliary lanes and collector distributor lanes, 1.3 miles of road improvements to US 29, 20 new bridges, and three new interchanges. The $513 million project opened to traffic on schedule in November 2011.
Engineering design work is underway, with construction starting this spring. The project is scheduled for completion in late 2013 / early 2014.
