Stantec scores major contract with U.S. Federal Highway Administration

The US$7.2 million five-year program will help highway agencies determine why some pavements outperform others.


highwayStantec was recently selected on a major contract with the U.S. Department of Transportation’s Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) for the Data Collection of Pavement Performance at Long Term Pavement Performance (LTPP) Test Sections.

The LTPP studies program was established under the Strategic Highway Research Program (SHRP) and has four regions across North America.

Stantec’s contract encompasses all four regions including North Atlantic, North Central, Southern, and Western.

This is the first time the Federal Highway Administration has procured services for all four regions under one contract. Stantec is building upon a 30-year relationship it has had with FHWA.

For each region, the Stantec team will collect pavement performance data, process the information received, and enter it into the LTPP Pavement Performance Database. Data collected and analyzed from each region will provide perspective for the FHWA in understanding the performance of various pavements types – and apply this information to help highway agencies build and maintain a cost-effective highway system.

Stantec has worked as Regional Support Contractors on six previous LTPP support contracts since 1988. This new contract amount is $7.2 million in gross revenue and will be in place for up to five years if all options are exercised.
