GM2 is the prime contract holder for construction engineering and inspection services for this $148M construction project. The project includes major improvements on a 1.3-mile stretch of I-95, including reconfiguring the Exit 74 interchange, adding full length acceleration lanes, and changing the number of crashes in the area to allow traffic to move more safely and freely.
