Hill International Selected as Construction Manager for the New Jersey Turnpike Authority's Facilities Improvement Program

MARLTON, N.J., Jan. 5, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Hill International (NYSE:HIL), the global leader in managing construction risk, announced today that it has received a contract from the New Jersey Turnpike Authority (NJTA) to provide construction management and inspection services in support of NJTA's Facilities Improvement Program. The four-year contract has an estimated value to Hill of approximately $33.7 million.

This new contract is an expansion of the company's current role, as Hill has been providing program management services for the Facilities Improvement Program since 2012.

The principal goal of the program is to bring the Authority's facilities on both the New Jersey Turnpike and the Garden State Parkway roadways into a state of good repair. Many of the Authority's facilities date back 60 years to the opening of the two roadways and are in need of replacement or upgrades. The program is comprised of five main components, namely: (1) the construction of four State Police stations, (2) the rehabilitation of toll facilities on the New Jersey Turnpike at 23 locations, (3) upgrades to 16 Maintenance Districts located on both the Garden State Parkway and New Jersey Turnpike, (4) the construction of a Backup Traffic/Data Management Center, and (5) the construction of a Central Inventory Facility.

"NJTA is eager to quickly and effectively address all needed Turnpike and Parkway repairs," said Michael V. Griffin, P.E., Senior Vice President and Mid-Atlantic Regional Manager for Hill's Project Management Group. "We are honored that they have once again turned to Hill to help manage this important program," added Griffin.
