HMMH Hampton Roads Crossing Study Receives ACEC Engineering Excellence Award

11.29.2017 |

Beginning in 2015, under contract to Rummel, Klepper & Kahl, LLP, HMMH undertook one of the largest-scale and most complicated environmental impact statements (EIS) in HMMH history as a supplement to the original EIS completed in 2001. The project covered over 30 miles of highway, required over 4,000 labor hours, involved over 6,500 noise-sensitive receptors, and considered over 25 miles of noise barriers..

Because of the scale, complexity, and short schedule of this project as well as the positive record of decision handed down by the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) in 2017, ACEC Virginia chose to recognize the hard work of those involved with an Engineering Excellence Award during a winter gala at the Jefferson Hotel in Richmond.

An overview of the work done by HMMH is available on our website here. For more information on the history of the project and a detailed record of the study, please visit the Virginia Department of Transportation’s project website here. HMMH is proud to have been a part of the team that has continuously sought to provide the people of Virginia with cleaner, quieter highways.
