The Tom Moreland interchange in Atlanta, completed in 1987 at a cost of $86 million, required 120,000 cubic yards of concrete on four levels. This was one of the first FHWA projects to use bidding plans rather than complete construction plans, saving the Georgia DOT about $400,000 in design fees. It was also one of the first major bridge projects in Atlanta to use cast-in-place concrete box girder construction. The Tom Moreland Interchange relieved the worst bottlneck in the Atlanta freeway system. In 1988 it received awards for engineering excellence from the American Consulting Engineers Council of Georgia and the American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE), District 10.
