FAM Construction, LLC (a Ferrovial Agroman US and Allan Myers joint venture) has awarded Smith-Midland the contract to supply 6,700 precast concrete lagging panels as part of the I-66 Outside the Beltway Express Lanes project in Northern Virginia. The project will run along the eastbound and westbound lanes of I-66.
Lagging panels are supplied for post and panel walls for the purpose of retaining earth.
