Bethesda-based contractor picked for final leg of ICC

ANNAPOLIS — A Bethesda-based contractor has been picked to build the $89 million final leg of the Inter-County Connector.

ICC Constructors, a joint venture consisting of Shirley Contracting Co. LLC, Clark Construction Group LLC, Facchina Construction Co. Inc. and Trumbull Corp. will build a one-mile segment that will connect the ICC to U.S. 1 in Prince George’s County.

Construction will begin in late spring and should be completed by late 2013 or early 2014, a statement said.

“Projects like the ICC address our state’s infrastructure needs so the next generation can benefit from an improved transportation system,” Gov. Martin O’Malley said in a prepared statement. “Construction of this final segment will support up to 1,000 jobs for our families, open the door to new economic development opportunities in northern Prince George’s County, and provide a congestion-free option for residents traveling between the US 1/I-95 corridor and the I-270 corridor.”

The first leg of the ICC, between Interstate 370 and Georgia Avenue in Rockville, opened Feb. 23, 2011. A portion that went from Georgia Avenue to I-95 opened Nov. 22.

Once completed, the $2.5 billion project will span just less than 19 miles.
