Michael Baker International Selected by North Carolina DOT for Interstate 95 Widening

ROBESON COUNTY, NC — Michael Baker International announces that the firm has been selected by the North Carolina Department of Transportation (NCDOT) to provide construction management and construction engineering and inspection (CEI) services for the widening of Interstate 95 (I-95) in Robeson County, North Carolina. The five-year project will widen 16 miles of I-95 between Fayetteville and Lumberton, North Carolina, and is intended to reduce congestion, plan for traffic growth, improve safety, enhance regional mobility, and make the infrastructure more resilient against future flooding.

"At Michael Baker, our construction services team is focused on safely delivering construction projects of the highest quality through innovative and cost-effective solutions," said Chadwick D. Huffines, P.E., Associate Vice President and Office Executive - Greensboro at Michael Baker International. "I-95 is a vital part of North Carolina's transportation system, and our team is proud to partner with NCDOT on the modernization of this important freight and travel corridor."

The I-95 widening project will add two additional travel lanes in each direction, bringing the total number of lanes from four to eight. The project will also include grading, utility relocations, several miles of drainage, roundabouts, several bores and jacks, asphalt and concrete paving, complex traffic phasing, shoring, 10 bridges, 11 box culverts, retaining walls, signing, and ITS/signals.

Michael Baker will be responsible for performing contract administration, inspection, erosion control inspection, materials sampling and testing, surveying grade verification, documentation of pay quantities, and claims avoidance. The firm opened a field office in Lumberton, North Carolina, in support of this project.
