August 15, 2014,Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania -- SAI has been selected by PennDot District 10-0 for an open-end agreement. The anticipated work will encompass a wide range of environmental and engineering efforts with projects assigned on an as-needed basis.



Rich Kauffman, P.E., Project Manager, and Larry Maher, Sr. Project Engineer, were key in the successful completion of the Final Design phase of the project. Rich, Larry and the entire SAI team maintained excellent communication with the District and were responsive to the District's requests. The original let date for the project was 12/15/11, and the District asked SAI to deliver the PS&E early for a 8/18/11 letting to secure a contractor in case emergency repairs were needed on the structure prior to the spring construction season.  SAI committed to the new let date and progressed through Final Design in about 9 months. SAI was given NTP on 8/31/10 and delivered the PS&E to Contract Management 5/23/11. The superstructure replacement project also included the design of a two-span temporary bridge to maintain traffic during construction.
