HNTB Selected as Owner’s Representative for Vermont’s Winooski River Bridge Replacement

BURLINGTON, VT — HNTB Corporation has been named owner’s representative for the Vermont Agency of Transportation’s (VTrans) Winooski River Bridge design-build replacement. VTrans plans to replace the 93-year-old bridge that serves 25,000 vehicles and 500 pedestrians a day with a new, safer structure featuring wider lanes and dedicated bike and pedestrian paths.

“This bridge replacement will improve the vital connection between the cities of Burlington and Winooski, Vermont,” said Josh Olund, HNTB Project Manager. “It will improve connectivity and provide safer multimodal transportation over the Winooski River.”

The Winooski River Bridge project received a $24.8 million federal RAISE Grant. VTrans will use a design-build contracting mechanism and incorporate accelerated bridge construction methods to reduce the number and duration of bridge closures. Work on the bridge replacement project design is currently underway.

HNTB continues to grow in Northern New England, recently adding several new employees to the office, including industry leaders like Rich Tetreault, a former Deputy Commissioner and Chief Engineer for VTrans.

In recent months, the firm has successfully delivered projects in the region including the Veranda Street bridge replacement project in Portland, Maine. The firm also is presently working on many other regionally significant projects such as the Madawaska/Edmundston International bridge replacement in Maine and the Coastal Revetment Reconstruction along Route 1A for New Hampshire Department of Transportation.
