Clark Nexsen Wins Two APWA Mid-Atlantic Awards

Clark Nexsen received two American Public Works Association (APWA) Mid-Atlantic Awards for their work on Herndon Metrorail Intermodal Access Improvements and Mount Pleasant Road Widening Phase I. These awards recognize the use of innovative construction management techniques, completion of the project on schedule, and innovations for time and cost savings. In addition, judges looked for outstanding safety performance and environmental protection, community, stakeholder, and agency coordination, and minimization of public inconvenience during construction.

Herndon Metrotrail Intermodal Access Improvements

With a new Metrorail station built as part of the Washington Metropolitan Area Transit Authority’s (WMTA) Silver Line extension, the Town of Herndon partnered with Clark Nexsen to integrate pedestrian access and transit improvements for the new station and the development of the Herndon Transit-Oriented Core.  

APWA Mid-Atlantic Honorable Mention, Transportation under $5 million
Mount Pleasant Road Widening Phase I

Situated between the Route 168 Interchange and Coopers Ditch Bridge, Mount Pleasant Road in Chesapeake, Virginia, is a busy, two-lane road facing ever-increasing average daily traffic, prompting the Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT) to partner with Clark Nexsen to enhance safety and reduce congestion by adding a center turn lane, widening the road to three lanes, adding a sidewalk, and replacing the previous shoulder and open ditch with a curb and gutter, while laying the foundation for future improvements.
