YORK, PA — Pennsylvania’s Wagman-JMT Design-Build team announced Wednesday it has been awarded the design-build contract for the rehabilitation of Colonial Parkway, Phase 1 project.

According to Wagman, the $122 million project is funded through the Great American Outdoors Act (GAOA) in partnership with the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA).

The project will repair approximately ten miles of the Colonial Parkway within the Colonial National Historical Park, including rehabilitating 10 bridges and the Williamsburg Tunnel; replacing concrete and asphalt road surfaces, box culvert rehabilitation, installing a new lighting system in the tunnel, guardrail and signage replacement and stormwater management.

“Wagman is excited to partner with the Federal Highway Administration and National Park Service on this signature project to rehabilitate the Colonial Parkway in preparation of our nation’s 250th anniversary celebration,” said Greg Andricos, President and COO of Wagman Heavy Civil.

The 23-mile Colonial Parkway was originally designed in the 1930s.

JMT is supporting Wagman as the project’s designer of record. Wagman said it received notice to proceed for design activities on March 22 and construction is slated to begin in the fall.

Founded in 1902, Wagman is a fourth generation, family-owned, multi-faceted construction firm with major operations in heavy civil, general construction, and geotechnical construction services. For more information about Wagman, visit wagman.com.
