Texas mega interchange

Fort Worth in Texas is getting a five-level, six lane tollway interchange. It has to be seen to be believed. So see it...
This massive five level, six lane tolled interchange outside Fort Worth in Texas known as Southwest Parkway has picked up the top award for Connecting Project Teams for contractor HDR at the Bentley Systems BE conference in Baltimore. The 14km route will relieve congestion in Forth Worth and is estimated to cost $925M (£464M). Completion is tentatively scheduled for late 2010, said HDR associate John Quintero who picked up the prize for the design realisation work. Twelve HDR offices plus four supplier offices worked in team of 130 to create the interchange. Software used included ProjectWise XM, MicroStation V8 and Geopak from Bentley. Fly through the scheme to the sounds of Steppenwolf courtesy of HDR’s animation. The 3D alignments and surfaces were extracted from GeoPak and modelled in 3D Studio Max. They were rendered in Autocad Viz and put together using Adobe Premier.
