Atkins has been selected to provide statewide construction management (CM) services for the Oklahoma Department of Transportation (ODOT)—a $7.5 million two-year contract.

With this contract, Atkins will continue to manage statewide construction projects for ODOT as the company has since 2009. As part of its previous CM contracts, Atkins oversaw construction efforts for several bridges, as well as for urban projects in four ODOT field divisions.

Atkins also managed stimulus-funded projects for roadway rehabilitation, ADA upgrades and safety improvements, laying fiber-optic cable, installing more than 400 new LED traffic-signal heads, and upgrading street lights by installing more than 100 new decorative roadway luminaries.

“It’s an honor to be chosen by ODOT for our third consecutive two-year contract,” stated Jim Hunt, Atkins’ Oklahoma district project director. “Winning this important contract reflects the confidence and trust our personnel have established through their dedication to quality and hard work with ODOT over the past four years.”

In addition to the CM work Atkins provides ODOT, the company is working on a utility-relocation coordination contract in support of ODOT’s eight-year plan to improve highways and bridges statewide.

Its multiple contracts have enabled Atkins to expand its office in Norman, Oklahoma; and the company is now planning to open an office in Tulsa.
