The Mid-Atlantic Region of the Design-Build Institute of America (DBIA) recently awarded its Design-Build Merit Award for Transportation to the Richmond Airport Connector Road, a turnkey design-build project. Dewberry, as engineer-of-record, teamed with the contractor, American Infrastructure-VA, Inc., on the design of the roadway leading directly into Richmond International Airport and reducing travel time to the airport by about 10 minutes. Prior to the construction of the connector road, access to the airport from the south was limited to small country and urban roads. This project was designed to improve traffic flow between Virginia State Route 895, known as Pocahontas 895, and the airport. The 1.6-mile four-lane divided toll road, which includes a trumpet-style interchange, provides motorists with direct access to Richmond International Airport from Pocahontas 895.

Travinia brings contemporary elegance to Willow Lawn


It was another win for Willow Lawn when Travinia Italian Kitchen and Wine Bar opened there six months ago, nestled in the heart of the re-made shopping center. The contemporary American Italian restaurant boasts 13 locations up and down the East Coast, with the Henrico location opening in August.

In the same week, I hit up Travinia twice, once for lunch and once for a late dinner. At lunchtime on a weekday, I was overwhelmed by the smell of garlic and by the number of working professionals in nice suits on their lunch breaks. When we first walked in, I was concerned our meal would be a little too pricey based on the décor – it’s a really nice place. Luckily, the menu has a variety of options for every budget. > Read more.

‘SpongeBob’ movie energizes with wit, laughter

There’s a ton of sugar in The SpongeBob Movie: Sponge Out of Water. Literal sugar, as SpongeBob Squarepants (Tom Kenny) and Patrick (Bill Fagerbakke) inhale their own weight in cotton candy and eat ice cream, one scoop per mouthful.

At one point we burrow into the brain of our boxy yellow hero and discover the inner workings of his brain: googly-eyed cakes and candies that giggle and sing. All of which is extremely appropriate for a film like Sponge Out of Water. Because not only is the movie sweet (the “awwww” kind of sweet), but it’s the equivalent of a 30-candy bar sugar rush, zipping between ideas like a sponge on rocket skates.

The story under all this is really not that complicated. SpongeBob flips burgers at the Krusty Krab. > Read more.
