Fayetteville Outer Loop Design-Build

STV is the lead designer for the $129.7 million Fayetteville Outer Loop initiative, serving as part of the design-build team led by the Balfour Beatty Infrastructure Inc./Branch Civil Inc. joint venture. The purpose of this project is to extend the Future I-295 – Fayetteville Outer Loop to improve traffic capacity, increase mobility and safety within the region, and to complete the congressionally approved Strategic Highway Corridor Network route around Fayetteville, NC. The owner is the North Carolina Department of Transportation.

The 6.1-mile-long project comprises a four-lane divided highway on a new location, with three interchanges and 14 bridges. It will complete the last leg of the future I-295, a 39-mile circumferential loop freeway connecting Fayetteville and Fort Bragg, NC. STV’s design included implementation of an innovative conveyor system over I-95 that will eliminate more than 140,000 construction trucks from highly traveled roadways, significantly improving safety for motorists. Additionally, the plan reduces construction and environmental impacts to more than 96 acres of right-of-way.
