The Zion Crossroads Diverging Diamond Interchange, located at the intersection of Interstate 64 and US Route 15 in Louisa County, Virginia was recently recognized by the Design-Build Institute of America (DBIA) as a recipient of their 2015 National Award of Merit in the Transportation Category and for the same honor by the DBIA Mid-Atlantic Region. The project was also a finalist for the 2015 Excellence in Teaming award.
DBIA is an organization that promotes the value of design-build project delivery and teaches the effective integration of design and construction services to ensure success for owners and design and construction practitioners. Headquartered in Washington, DC, DBIA also has a network of 14 regions.
As Virginia’s first diverging diamond interchange project, Zion Crossroads brought together the expertise of Corman Construction Inc., Parsons Corporation, and MBP with Alpha Corporation providing design and construction management services for VDOT. Further, this work was managed out of the Winchester office with John Glass, PE, LEED AP, serving as Construction Manager, and Josh Swatman, PE, as Coordinator.
