Previously, Smith managed environmental consulting activities for the Design-Build Joint Venture (DBJV) for the Mobile River Bridge and Bayway project. The Alabama Department of Transportation (ALDOT) $2 billion project funded by a public private partnership relieves traffic congestion, and includes increasing vertical clearance assuring continued operations of Mobile’s maritime industry while raising the Bayway above the 100-year storm surge level. The project is of economic and environmental importance; spanning an industrial area of Mobile and five rivers, including waters of the United States, wetlands, and threatened and endangered (T&E) species habitats. The environmental scope of work for the current bridge and Bayway alignment includes review and evaluation of 20 industrial sites with impacted soil and ground water, review and evaluation of potential impacts to wetlands and T&E species, and identifying and mitigating risks associated with permitting and compliance for the project given the involvement of numerous State and Federal agencies.
