MARLTON, N.J. and IRVINE, Calif., March 27, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Hill International (NYSE:HIL), the global leader in managing construction risk, announced today that it has received a contract from the Orange County Department of Public Works to provide construction management and inspection services in connection with the La Pata Avenue and Camino Del Rio highway extension project. The seven-year contract has an estimated value of approximately $7.7 million.
The project, which has an estimated construction cost of approximately $73 million, involves extending the existing portion of La Pata Avenue south of Ortega Highway, outside the City of San Juan Capistrano, to connect with La Pata Avenue in San Clemente at Calle Saluda. The project will close the gap between the two roadway segments, providing a new essential link in the local roadway network. The project also includes an extension of Camino Del Rio to the new La Pata Avenue from where it ends, just east of Camino De Los Mares. Both projects total approximately four miles.
"This extension will greatly improve traffic flow entering San Juan Capistrano," said Michael Tahan, Senior Vice President in charge of Hill's highway and bridge practice in California. "We are proud to be part of this important project," added Tahan.
