GDOT also included the following information on another contract awarded to C.W. Matthews:

A Design-Build project was awarded to CW Matthews Contracting/ ICE Consulting, LLC in the month of June worth approximately $50 million. This SR 400 Phase I Design-Build project was pulled forward as part of a phased delivery of the planned SR 400 Express Lanes project to leverage a portion of $184 million INFRA grant Georgia DOT received to relieve congestion along this corridor. As part of the project, three bridges – Pitts Road, Roberts Drive, and Kimball Bridge Road – will be replaced with a raised profile to accommodate the future SR 400 Express Lanes. Additionally, multiuse paths will be incorporated into the new bridges in partnership with the City of Sandy Springs and the City of Alpharetta. The construction of the Pitts Road and Kimball Bridge Road bridges will require a detour. To learn more about this project, please visit: http://www.dot.ga.gov/PS/Innovative/DesignBuild.
