A Different Kind of Design-Build Project:  WSP will discuss the unique design and construction challenges behind the delivery of the Design Build project to rehabilitate the north section of the George Washington Memorial Parkway.  Creative design solutions were needed on a facility that is both a major commuter route as well as an important historic resource.
