Spotsylvania County Transportation Improvements

In November 2007, the Spotsylvania County Virginia Board of Supervisors awarded Spotsylvania County Infrastructure, LLC (SCI), comprised of Shirley Contracting Company, LLC and W. C. English, Inc., and Dewberry Consultants LLC as the Lead Designer, a contract to Develop, Design, and Construct the Spotsylvania County Transportation Improvements. The Transportation Improvements Projects were part of a solicited PPTA by Spotsylvania County designed to take advantage of a November 2005 voter approved $120 million road bond referendum to complete needed road projects in the County.

Under an Interim Agreement (IA) with the County in September 2006, SCI’s scope of work included preliminary engineering on 9 secondary road projects in the County. The SCI Team developed over 40 alternatives for the Projects, performing surveys and mapping, development of typical sections and details, roadway plans and profiles, preliminary cross sections, preliminary drainage design, bridge design, wetland delineations & permitting, traffic analysis, right-of-way and utility relocations. As part of the IA, SCI also provided firm fixed pricing and schedules for each Project.

In November 2007, the County entered into a Comprehensive Agreement with SCI to complete the design and construction of all 9 projects. The Team was given a Notice to Proceed on 5 of the 9 projects. The Projects included Harrison Road East, Mine Road, Hardwood Campbell, Mine Road at Lansdowne Road, Gordon Road, and Massaponax Church Road, and Smith Station Road. Completion of the of the 5 projects ranged from summer of 2009 to the summer of 2013.
