Hill International Awarded Contract to Manage Montgomery County’s Ridge Pike Improvement Project

August 16, 2023

MOUNT LAUREL, N.J. and PHILADELPHIA, Aug. 16, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Hill International, delivering the infrastructure of change, announced today it was awarded a contract by Montgomery County (County) to provide construction management services for Sections A, B, and C of the Ridge Pike Improvement Project in Montgomery County, PA.

The project will reconstruct Ridge Pike between Norristown and Philadelphia, with additional widening and safety improvements at specific locations along the route. Once complete, the project will reduce congestion and improve roadway safety, enhance stormwater management systems, provide safer access for pedestrians and buses, and help the communities and businesses along Ridge Pike remain economically competitive. More than 30,000 vehicles use the 5-mile section of the project’s roadway daily. The roadway and many of the structures remaining along Ridge Pike today have been part of the local landscape for a very long time, some dating to colonial times.

Hill will manage three sections of the project. Section A requires complex engineering in areas near the Pennsylvania Turnpike, Norfolk Southern rail lines, and a Sunoco pipeline. The Section also includes two new bridges and widening to support a proposed Turnpike interchange. Section B, in a busy commercial area, will be widened to include one new bridge and a center left-turn lane. Section C will include widening at major intersections to reduce impacts to the adjacent residential communities.

Hill’s services will include implementing a project controls system, schedule analysis and monitoring, management reporting, document control, cost estimating, third-party coordination, design reviews, constructability reviews, change management, claims avoidance, community outreach coordination, and related on-site and field services.

Hill Senior Vice President, Mid-Atlantic Vic Spinabelli said of the award: “We are excited to have Montgomery County as a new client for Hill and are looking forward to being involved with such an important and transformative project as Ridge Pike. I know our experience and expertise will add value to the project and deliver the results the County expects.”

Hill Chief Executive Officer Raouf S. Ghali adds: “Infrastructure projects, especially transportation infrastructure, are a hallmark of Hill. This is largely due to the many successful road and highway programs and projects we’ve helped realize in Pennsylvania and across the U.S. The award of the Ridge Pike Improvement project continues our commitment to infrastructure excellence.”
