Construction of the largest private investment in US history –the ThyssenKrupp Stainless Steel Mill in Calvert, Alabama –called for more than the creation of the plant itself. Access to the plant was an immediate need, and Thompson Engineering was contracted for its transportation engineering expertise, as well as other services inside the plant perimeter.
Fast-tracked and multi-faceted, the ThyssenKrupp Interchange project on US-43 in north Mobile County included the design of a full interchange, reconstruction of an access roadway as well as the relocation of underground utilities. Thompson Engineering also provided roadway and drainage design, geotechnical investigation and engineering and high mast and standard roadway lighting design.
After design, Thompson Engineering provided regulatory coordination involving the construction permitting and preparation of site-specific stormwater pollution prevention plans at each project site.
