Parsons Serves As Lead Designer For New American Legion Bridge I-270 Traffic Relief Plan
CENTREVILLE, Va. (October 13, 2022) – Parsons Corporation (NYSE: PSN) announced today that the company will serve as lead designer and subconsultant to the construction joint venture led by Tutor Perini Corporation (NYSE: TPC) that has been selected by Accelerate Maryland Partners to design and construct Phase 1 South of the New American Legion Bridge I-270 Traffic Relief Plan. This contract represents new work for Parsons.
The Maryland Department of Transportation (MDOT) project, with an estimated value in the billions of dollars, includes replacing and expanding the American Legion Bridge and adding two new High Occupancy Toll (HOT) managed lanes in each direction from south of the George Washington Memorial Parkway in Fairfax County, Virginia, to west of MD 187 (Old Georgetown Road) in Montgomery County, Maryland. On I‑270, the project will convert the existing high occupancy vehicle (HOV) lane in each direction to a HOT managed lane and add one new HOT managed lane in each direction on I-270 from I-495 to north of I-370, and on the I-270 east and west spurs.
This effort will be one of the largest transportation projects in the United States and will help millions of travelers in the National Capital Region move more efficiently.

Phase 1 South of the New American Legion Bridge I-270 Traffic Relief Plan includes improvements for approximately 14 miles of heavily traveled highway.
