The Georgia Department of Transportation selected the team of C.W. Matthews Contracting Company/Michael Baker International for the Courtland Street Bridge project, according to a press release. The agency said it expects to officially confirm the selection in early August after additional materials are reviewed.
C.W. Matthews was picked because it presented the best plan to minimize impact during construction, according to K. Joe Carpenter, a GDOT director. The proposal is said to involve shorter closure periods, fewer parking impacts to Georgia State University and stronger pedestrian access.
