The $161 Million Design-Build Contract is the Company's Largest To Date
The National Park Service (NPS), in partnership with the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA), has awarded a $161 million Design-Build contract to Fort Myer Construction to rehabilitate the northern section of the George Washington Memorial Parkway.
The contract is the largest infrastructure investment funded by the Great American Outdoors Act to date. This announcement comes on the heels of the passage of the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law, a historic investment in the nation's infrastructure that will help rebuild roads and bridges, tackle the climate crisis and create good-paying jobs.
“The George Washington Memorial Parkway is more than just a road used by roughly 70,000 vehicles per day— it is critical infrastructure that helps millions of people connect to places to learn and recreate among the natural wonders along the Potomac River,” said Secretary of the Interior Deb Haaland.
“Fort Myer Construction is proud to be awarded this Design-Build contract. This is our largest contract in company history,” explained Fort Myer Construction Director of Estimating and Mega projects Sam Patel. “Our company has never been in a better position to serve the complex and growing infrastructure needs of our region.”
George Washington Memorial Parkway is a scenic roadway honoring the nation’s first president. The northern section of the parkway – from SpoutRun to Interstate 495 – is the busiest section of parkway and serves about 26 million drivers annually.
