Hill International to Assist the Pennsylvania Turnpike Commission in Completing the Mon/Fayette Expressway System

PHILADELPHIA, Pa. and HARRISBURG, Pa., Oct. 19, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Hill International (NYSE:HIL), the global leader in managing construction risk, announced today it will provide construction management (CM) and related support for the Pennsylvania Turnpike Commission’s (PTC) expansion project from SR 51 to SR 837 along the Mon/Fayette Expressway (MFE) system. The MFE system consists of four interconnected projects between Interstate 68 in West Virginia and Interstate 376 in Pennsylvania. This project involves an eight-mile stretch of the MFE from Pennsylvania SR 51 in Jefferson Hills to Pennsylvania SR 837 in Duquesne. The Jefferson Hills to Duquesne project is the southern portion of the larger, 14-mile project that will eventually extend the MFE to Interstate 376 near Monroeville. Hill is providing its support as a subconsultant to Johnson, Mirmiran & Thompson (JMT). The total project value of the work is estimated at $900 million.

The work will enhance safety for travelers and utilize new Intelligent Transportation Systems (ITS), including cashless tolling. The project will ultimately boost economic activity in the Mon Valley, providing better highway access and mobility to help spur redevelopment efforts in the area. Hill will provide pre-construction and construction phase services, including support and assistance with planning and design activities and continuing through project completion while assisting with project schedule, cost control, and quality oversight on behalf of the PTC.
“This project is another excellent example of the PTC moving forward with projects that benefit motorists, local businesses and residents, and the Commonwealth as a whole,” said Vic Spinabelli, Senior Vice President and Mid-Atlantic Regional Manager for Hill. “Our firm has a long history of working with the PTC across Pennsylvania, and we will bring our knowledge and experience to this project to help ensure the work is completed safely and on-budget, and with minimal impacts to motorists and the environment.”
