New Mining Educational Video Available

June 01, 2014 -

In a recent effort driven by VTCA’s Aggregate Operations Committee, a great video about aggregates mining and the use of aggregates has been developed and is now available.

Only eight minutes in length, the video in DVD format was originally planned for use only at the 2013 Virginia Association of Science Teachers Conference. However, once completed by Rob Teague at Martin Marietta, it was felt that this video could be a great public relations tool for any number of opportunities including presentations to civic clubs, youth groups, school boards, boards of supervisors as well as other community and legislative outreaches.

Once again, our thanks to Rob Teague for a very professional job in making the mining video.

HNTB Earns Two Prestigious Awards

May 06, 2014 -

HNTB Corporation has once again earned national recognition, receiving two 2014 Honor Awards from the American Council of Engineering Companies for two highly complex transportation projects - one for the design of the 495 Express Lanes in Northern Virginia and one for the tunnel portion of the Sound Transit’s University Link Light Rail Transit Project in Seattle.

Of particular interest in Virginia, HNTB and Fluor-Lane in 2002 developed and presented the Virginia Department of Transportation with an unsolicited public-private partnership proposal to improve “the Beltway” 495.  The design-build proposal recommended reconstructing eight general-purpose lanes and adding four express lanes along a 14-mile section of I-495 in northern Virginia. This heavily traveled 64-mile circumferential beltway passes through Northern Virginia’s environmentally sensitive and most economically vital areas and connects to three major interstate highways, limited access roadways and high capacity primary and secondary routes.
As the project’s lead designer, HNTB was charged with delivering designs for the four new express lanes and the complete reconstruction of the existing facility, including 57 new or replacement bridges, reconstruction of 12 interchanges, new or replacement sound walls, tolling technology and retaining wall structures. The design also had to coordinate with a new Metrorail Silver Line being built through part of the 495 Express Lanes project area and with other busy highways and arterials that repeatedly cross and connect with this section of I-495.

Benefiting from fast-track design and coordinated efforts between VDOT, Fluor-Lane and HNTB, the 495 Express Lanes opened in November 2012, a month ahead of schedule. Under the P3 agreement, Transurban will operate and maintain the express lanes for 75 years. The new toll lanes are among the first in the United States to double as high-occupancy vehicle lanes, bringing new travel choices and guaranteed mobility to the most-congested roadways.
