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.
