After more than three years of construction on the I-295 Fayetteville Outer Loop, Sanford Contractors earned the Carolinas AGC Pinnacle Partner Award, recognizing our partnership with Barnhill Contracting Company on this expansive project. 

Barnhill was awarded the 2023 Pinnacle Award for “Best Highway Project.” The Fayetteville Outer Loop, which extends from US-401 to Cliffdale Road, called for six new bridges and a replacement bridge. Despite setbacks from Hurricane Florence and the impacts of COVID-19, Barnhill’s and Sanford Contractor’s mutual commitment to safety and problem solving kept the project on schedule. 

“There was a period where the entire Bridge Division was actively working here. Our Utility Division also assisted Barnhill with some utility relocations in the early stages of the job,” said Justin Carter, vice president of SCI’s Bridge & Heavy Construction Division.

“Everyone involved with this project should be immensely proud of this accomplishment. This award is a testament to the quality of our team and the quality of the finished product. This was a job well done!”

The completed Outer Loop project will offer residents, travelers and military personnel invaluable relief from traffic congestion and easier access to the military base.
