Beginning in 2001, Trumbull Corporation provided general contracting services for the complete rehabilitation of a 9.6-mile section of interstate highway in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania. Roadway work on the Interstate 81 mainline involved excavation, new roadway construction, shoulder restoration, reconstruction, and various depths of bituminous paving material for widening and resurfacing existing roadways. Thirteen bridge structures were reconstructed during the multi-year project. One bridge, a nine-span, 135-feet wide bridge, crosses over the Norfolk Southern Railroad mainline and intermodal yard and presented unique challenges for construction. The scope of work also included drainage, concrete glare screens and barrier, guide rail, highway lighting, traffic signals, signing, pavement markings, and utility relocation. The American Concrete Pavement Association named this project a Co-Finalist in the Divided Highways Urban category of the 2005 National Pavement Awards Program for Excellence in Concrete Pavement.
