We look forward to the opportunity of working with Terra Site Constructors as they share the same values as FCE in delivering a quality product.

Terra Site Constructors, LLC will partner with Fielder's Choice Enterprise, Inc. the Prime Contractor on the Route 29 – Route 250 Interchange Improvements Project, to build the Mechanically Stabilized Earth (MSE) Wall, a critical phase of the project. This portion of the project will reduce the noise for neighboring property owners along the lanes of the U.S. 250 Bypass between U.S. 29 and Barracks Road – an area that carries between 38,000 and 52,000 vehicles per day on average according to the VDOT website.

The overall project will reduce congestion and improve the safety and movement of traffic from Route 29 onto the Route 250 Bypass. The primary reason for the interchange improvements is to address traffic volumes and crash history. According to the VDOT website, “From February 2006 to December 2008 there were 34 crashes on the Route 250 Bypass ramp and its immediate vicinity.” In order to improve the safety, this project will add an additional lane on the southbound entrance ramp from Route 29 onto the Route 250 Bypass and a connected merge lane on Route 250 westbound to the Barracks Road exit. The project will also provide an additional southbound lane to Route 29 and a new sidewalk in the U.S. 29 median.

Project Started March 2015
Proposed Completion March 2016
