I-40 Slope Stabilization Project Wins Pinnacle Award

The Carolinas chapter of the Associated General Contractors of America (AGC) has awarded a Pinnacle Award for Best Highway Project to the I-40 Slope Stabilization project in North Carolina. Golder Associates and Janod Contractors supported the winning contractor, Phillips & Jordan, Inc., on this important highway fix.


Golder professionals from around the United States and Canada supported the contractor by monitoring submittal/approval processes, production, drill logs, drillhole acceptance, downhole video logging, anchor fabrications, installation, grouting, testing, and acceptance. Work crews faced harsh conditions, including heavy rains, snow, freezing temperatures, and high winds. The I-40 project is precedent-setting for difficulty and number of anchors installed, with over 50,000 linear feet of 100-150-foot-long ground anchors installed in 66 days.

The AGC Pinnacle Awards are a prestigious honor nationally in the construction industry. Candidate projects are judged based on unique aspects, special challenges, project management, budget/schedule, and safety performance.
