$2.2 Million Retaining Wall Project Awarded to Smith-Midland

FAM Construction, LLC (a Ferrovial Agroman US and Allan Myers joint venture) awarded Smith-Midland the contract to supply 6,700 precast concrete lagging panels as part of the I-66 Outside the Beltway Express Lanes project in Northern Virginia. The project runs along the eastbound and westbound lanes of I-66.

Lagging panels are supplied for post-and-panel walls for the purpose of retaining earth. They were cast in the Midland, Virginia plant with a variety of architectural designs to coordinate with the overall project design and neighborhood requirements. Production of the panels has begun and will continue into 2021.

This is one of several products Smith-Midland is supplying for the Outside the Beltway Express Lanes project, the others being J-J Hooks highway safety barrier and SoftSound absorptive noise wall. The 22.5 mile long project is creating two express lanes alongside three regular lanes from I-495 to Route 29 in Gainesville along with other amenities and space reserved for future transit options.
