New maintenance facility makes room for fluid route through the Northeast.
Relocation of the Trevose Maintenance Facility was part of the first phase of the $650 million mega project to link the NJ Turnpike (I-95), northeast of Philadelphia, to the Pennsylvania Turnpike (I-276) with an interchange. Construction of the new, $17 million maintenance complex, next to the existing one, makes room for the planned, widened interchange and resulting fluid route through the Northeast.
With unused property and a location central to several districts, Trevose Maintenance Facility was an ideal site to upgrade.
Urban provided construction management for the six new buildings that compose the facility. These buildings were designed and constructed to meet LEED Silver Certification standards:
Substantial planning was required for the temporary relocations of communications equipment, fueling facilities, and maintenance activities that allowed the Pennsylvania Turnpike to maintain full operations during construction. Work occurred in four phases, including concurrent construction of several buildings; demolition of the existing maintenance building, salt shed, and fueling station; removal and disposal of underground storage tanks, hazardous waste, and contaminated soil; and installation of upgraded utilities, paving, fencing, and landscaping.
