Largest Barrier Order in Company History

FAM Construction, LLC (a Ferrovial Agroman US and Allan Myers partnership) awarded Smith-Midland the contract to supply up to 245,000 LF of J-J Hooks precast concrete safety barrier for the I-66 Outside the Beltway Express Lanes project in Northern Virginia.

The 22.5 mile long I-66 project will provide two express lanes alongside three regular lanes from I-495 to Route 29 in Gainesville and space in the median reserved for future transit options. In addition, the project consists of 4,000 park-n-ride spaces, safety and operational improvements at key interchanges, and bicycle and pedestrian upgrades.
