LOWELL, MA--(Marketwired - Jan 12, 2015) - TRC Companies, Inc. (NYSE: TRR) has been awarded a $26 million contract to provide construction engineering inspection services for more than 500 bridges throughout the state of Pennsylvania. The project is part of the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation's Rapid Bridge Replacement program, a public-private-partnership to repair aging and deficient infrastructure quickly, cost effectively and with minimum impact to travelers. TRC will perform the work for the project's development entity, Plenary Walsh Keystone Partners.

"TRC is proud to be part of this tremendous effort to improve Pennsylvania's critical transportation infrastructure," said Chris Vincze, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer. "The need to bring the nation's highways, bridges, and railways into a state of good repair is undeniable. Public-private-partnerships that enable the flow of capital and speed project completion are an increasingly effective approach, as state budgets remain tight. We are dedicated to helping clients achieve their ultimate goals by actively participating in innovative project delivery methods and by providing creative solutions to project challenges."

Under the contract, TRC will conduct construction quality acceptance for more than 500 bridges (with potential for expansion to include additional bridges) and will support reconstruction with pretressed, precast, and steel fabrication inspection. The project will begin in the summer of 2015 and is required to be completed within 36 months.
