Hill International Receives $25M Contract to Manage Construction of the Scudder Falls Bridge Replacement Project
PHILADELPHIA, PA Hill International, the global leader in managing construction risk, announces that the company has received a contract from the Delaware River Joint Toll Bridge Commission (DRJTBC) to provide construction management services for the Scudder Falls Bridge Replacement Project. The five-and-a-half-year contract has an estimated value to Hill of approximately $25 million.
The DRJTBC is preparing to undertake bridge, interchanges and approach roadway improvements to the Scudder Falls Bridge, originally constructed in 1959, that carries I-95 over the Delaware River between Bucks County, Pennsylvania and Mercer County, New Jersey. As part of the Scudder Falls Bridge Replacement Project, a full bridge replacement with twin structures will be constructed, one for each roadway (northbound and southbound), with each having three travel lanes along with standard auxiliary lanes (two auxiliary lanes in the northbound direction and one auxiliary lane in the southbound to process exiting and entering traffic to and from the bridge to the interchanges on both sides of the river) and both left and right shoulders.
Hill will be supported on the contract by principal subconsultants Jacobs Engineering Group, Inc. and Joseph Jingoli & Son, Inc.
"We are honored to have been selected to manage construction of this critically-needed infrastructure improvement project," said Michael V. Griffin, P.E., Senior Vice President and Mid-Atlantic Regional Manager for Hill's Project Management Group.
