Robin Dominick, PE, PMP, Avi Hawver, PE, and Michael Giovannitti, PE

CDM Smith


This presentation will provide an overall perspective of the I-95, Section BS2 project, focusing on the Tacony viaduct.The presentation will include the design process and challenges of the roadway alignments, TS&L alternatives, foundations, curved steel girders, and integral post-tensioned concrete cross girders. The project is currently in construction, and the presentation will include a summary of the O-cell testing and resulting field modifications to the large-diameter caissons.



Rigid Inclusion Support for the Potomac Yard Metro Station

Brandon T. Buschmeier, PE

Menard USA


The Potomac Yard Metro Station, inaugurated in May 2023, serves as a crucial link between Alexandria, Virginia, and Washington, DC. This station, along with the new rail lines and associated pedestrian walkways and bridges, is supported by Controlled Modulus Columns (CMCs). Employing different diameters, spacings, and depths, the CMCs are designed to increase the bearing capacity and reduce the long-term settlement of the station and associated structures while providing a more cost-effective solution compared to a traditional deep foundation pile scheme. Building upon the knowledge and perspectives acquired from the Potomac Yard Station, this presentation explores the design principles of CMCs across various soil compositions and under differing load conditions. It also examines the strengths and limitations inherent in utilizing CMCs for construction projects in the DMV area and beyond.

Matt Edmond

Montgomery County


The current four-part program for long-awaited improvements (roadway reconstruction, widening, drainage, signals) on Ridge Pike from the Philadelphia County Line (Northwestern Avenue) to Belvoir Road covers Whitemarsh and Plymouth Townships.
