Pittsburgh-based geotechnical general contractor Nicholson Construction was recently awarded a $20 million contract as part of the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT’s) massive Interstate 95 improvement project. The I-95 project is a long-term, multiphase initiative to rebuild, improve and widen sections of the roadway, which is a vital link for millions of residents and businesses in the area. I-95 currently supports approximately 102,000 motorists, including trucks, per day.
Nicholson will be installing 1,759 micropiles as part of the replacement of a three-mile elevated section of I-95. The company has worked on a number of projects with PennDOT, including their current micropile project for the Walsh/Granite JV bridge replacement on SR23 in Columbia, PA. “We have a long history of working all over the state with PennDOT,” said Mark Rothbauer, Regional Manager, Nicholson Construction. “We’re really happy to bring our expertise to the I-95 project, which is going to have a positive impact on so many residents and drivers in the Philadelphia area.”
