Engineer: 
ICC Corridor Partners, a Joint Venture of Rummel Klepper & Kahl, Parsons Brinckerhoff and URS
Description:
The $2.425-billion Intercounty Connector is an 18.8-mile highway that connects major transportation corridors north of Washington, D.C. The all-electronic tolling facility provides a safe travel alternative to overcrowded local roads. It was implemented using three design-build teams which included more than 200 contractors and subcontractors. Its $370-million environmental program included a comprehensive set of avoidance, minimization and mitigation measures which were undertaken during the roadway’s construction. The result was a roadway many have called “America’s Greenest Highway.”

In 1996, the city of Santa Monica closed the Charnock Well Field, one of its main well fields, after discovering MtBE contamination. After years of working toward an eventual legal settlement, the city awarded a design-build contract to Black & Veatch to complete the fast-tracked restoration project. In less than 20 months, Black & Veatch completed the project and helped the city to once again restore the well field as a sustainable source of water.
