The State Transportation Board of Georgia selected a contractor to rebuild the I-285 interchange at I-20 east of the city this week. According to The Atlanta Journal-Constitution, the state came to an agreement with East Interchange Builders LLC, a team led by two of the largest transportation construction firms in Georgia: Archer Western Construction LLC and E.R. Snell Contractor Inc. The contract is worth $685.6 million
Out of the three proposals received for the work, the Georgia Department of Transportation selected East Interchange Builders because it scored highest on its technical and financial proposals, GDOT Chief Engineer Meg Pirkle said.
