KRAKOW, Poland, Sept. 21, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- The General Directorate for National Roads and Highways (GDDKiA) in Poland has chosen CH2M (through Halcrow, a CH2M company) to develop a corridor study, technical-economic-environmental study and obtain an environmental decision for the reconstruction of National Road No.75, Section Brzesko – Nowy Sacz.
CH2M will develop at least five reconstruction design options, including a non-investment option based on maintenance of traffic and safety, for the 50-kilometer-long section of National Road No.75, which connects the cities of Brzesko and Nowy Sacz.
The studies will encompass geographical, natural and social assessments, as well as multi-criteria and traffic safety analysis of proposed design solutions for the potential reconstruction/construction of:
- expanded lane capacity along the 50-kilometer section of National Road No.75;
- a new road tunnel under Just Mountain;
- improved road nodes and structures;
- new service roads for supporting adjacent areas in the design section; and
- environmental protection and equipment facilities.
"Our team in Krakow has delivered numerous similar transportation projects in Poland and globally over the last couple of years," commented CH2M Transportation Business Development Manager, Artur Mazurek. "This reconstruction project is interesting for us as we'll be able to bring our global portfolio of roadway and tunneling best practices to our work on National Road No.75."
