FEMA Evacuation Route Improvement Projects

Design and Construction Management

Thompson Engineering led design and construction management efforts of a large-scale FEMA evacuation route improvement project in Calhoun County, Alabama. In total, Thompson replaced seven bridges and improved nearly 12 miles of roadway in Anniston, with work including construction and inspection services, field surveys, hydraulic review and analysis, preparation of National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) environmental documents, geotechnical services, roadway and bridge plans, bid assistance and right-of-way services.

Thompson coordinated with federal, state, local and tribal authorities for NEPA environmental documentation services including wetland investigations, archaeological surveys, architectural surveys, threatened and endangered species surveys and mitigation, wetland delineation and mitigation, hazardous material surveys and impacts studies to farmland, air and noise and the floodplain. 

Thompson Engineering also provided regulatory coordination involving the construction permitting and preparation of site-specific stormwater pollution prevention plans at each project site.
