Edmonton, AB/New York — Stantec was recently selected on a major contract with the U.S. Department of Transportation’s Federal Highway Administration (FHWA). The contract is for the Data Collection of Pavement Performance at Long Term Pavement Performance (LTPP) Test Sections. The LTPP studies program was established under the Strategic Highway Research Program (SHRP) and has four regions across North America. Stantec’s contract encompasses all four regions including North Atlantic, North Central, Southern, and Western. This is the first time that the FHWA has procured services for all four regions under one contract. According to Gabe Cimini, Stantec’s project manager, “We are thrilled to be continuing, and expanding upon, our 30-year relationship with FHWA on this important program.”
For each region, the Stantec team will collect pavement performance data, process the information received, and enter it into the LTPP Pavement Performance Database. Data collected and analyzed from each region will provide perspective for the FHWA in understanding the performance of various pavements types – and apply this information to help highway agencies build and maintain a cost-effective highway system. The Stantec team has worked as Regional Support Contractors on six previous LTPP support contracts since 1988. This new contract amount is $7.2 million in gross revenue and will be in place for up to five years if all options are exercised.
Susan Walter, Stantec’s senior vice president of Transportation said, “We are dedicated to continuing our relationship with the FHWA and will provide them with the high level of client service they’ve grown to expect from our team.”
Stantec’s Infrastructure group is comprised of approximately 4,200 staff, operating in six countries and over 150 offices.
