Project: Warrenton I-70 Interchange
Client: City of Warrenton
The City of Warrenton knew that a second I-70 interchange would be a great economic benefit for the community. CMT was brought aboard as engineer and partner to the city in advocating for this valuable infrastructure improvement. CMT supported the City as they worked to pass new sales tax that generated $15.4 million for the project. Through the compressed dual roundabout design and minimized right-of-way needs, the team was able to deliver the project for under $10 million. The design team was committed to seeing the interchange open to traffic within two years of the tax passing and completed its design in eight months. Economic benefits are already being realized as a nearby shopping center has experienced a 25% increase in occupancy in anticipation of the improved access.
