US 78 Bridge Replacement over Edisto River

This highly accelerated interchange improvement project involved constructing new entrance interchanges with I-85 to the Greenville-Spartanburg Airport and the BMW Plant with funding by the Department of Commerce. The project consisted of interstate improvements, relocations of the associated frontage roads, and two new high speed interchanges which included 6 bridge structures totaling 61,000 SF, 700,000 SY of asphalt pavement, and 850,000 CY of excavation. The approach to this project was to aggressively address utility relocations, significantly reduce environmental impacts, and mitigate concerns from GSP Airport and BMW. Despite scope growth of 13% via owner directive extensions, the project was completed without claims within the original 21 month schedule.
