“We are proud to continue our partnership with ODOT and KYTC during the construction of this essential project that will enhance mobility, safety, and economic growth across a major artery in the national transportation network,” said Sarah Lee, HNTB Ohio Office Leader.
During the past 10 years, HNTB has provided financial and technical support to help ODOT and KYTC advance the project and explore options for delivery and financing.
The project will reconstruct approximately five miles of Interstate 71 and Interstate 75 in Kentucky and approximately 1.5 miles in Ohio and will include construction of a new companion bridge to the Brent Spence Bridge.
According to Lee, the improvements will relieve congestion and improve air quality while increasing efficiency of shipping and commerce on I-71 and I-75.
Under the new contract, HNTB’s scope of work includes general project management tasks, miscellaneous design tasks, plan review, design-build project proposal development, request for qualification development, statement of qualifications review, request for proposal development, technical proposal review, and environmental investigations on a task order type basis for the development and delivery of the project.
