Roads and Bridges magazine names Knightdale Bypass one of the nation's top transportation projects
(Longmont, CO) October 17, 2005 – Roads and Bridges magazine, a national publication dedicated to this country’s transportation infrastructure, named Flatiron’s recently completed Knightdale Bypass one of the Top 10 Roads and Bridges in the U.S.
The Roads and Bridges’ editorial staff based their selection on the size of the project and how it contributes to the nation’s overall transportation needs. The magazine recognized the Knightdale Bypass among the ten best new road and bridge projects for its sheer size and timely accommodation of increasing traffic demands in the Raleigh, North Carolina area.
“…[The Knightdale Bypass] is one of the largest jobs…in the country, and it has met several challenges dealing with scheduling, permit compliance, and traffic control. The Knightdale Bypass defines what is a Top 10 Road,” wrote Roads and Bridges Editor Bill Wilson.
The new bypass accommodates approximately 70% of US 64 traffic in Knightdale, North Carolina. Flatiron Constructors opened the 10-mile design-build project to traffic over one month early on July 8, 2005.
