Smith-Midland Corporation ® was awarded an $800,000 contract in January to produce 117 custom precast concrete electrical manholes as part of the expansion of Metrorail to Dulles International Airport.
“Twenty-eight of the manholes will measure 16 feet by 8 feet and will be made from a custom-made form,” said Matthew Smith, Vice President of Sales and Marketing at Smith-Midland. “The form was designed around Dominion Power specifications and was produced by our welders at our Midland plant.”
The order will support Phase 1 of the project, which will extend Metrorail from the Orange Line, between the East and West Falls Church stations, to Wiehle Ave., along the Dulles Toll Road. The $1.2 billion expansion is expected to be completed in 2013.
