History of Georgia Division

In 1995, The L.C. Whitford Co, Inc. (LCW) opened an office in Atlanta, Georgia specifically to find work associated with the 1996 Summer Olympics. While LCW did receive several contracts with the Olympic Planning Committee, one of the first contracts was for the Georgia Department of Transportation (GDOT).

A majority of the work constructed since 1995 has been for GDOT. This work has included major bridge repairs on Interstate routes throughout the State (I-85, I-75, I-285, I-20, I-520, I-16, and I-95).

In 1998, The L.C. Whitford Co., Inc. became one of only two construction companies in Georgia that is certified to work on historic bridges and has restored several historic covered bridges since then.

Soon after arriving in Georgia, LCW purchased nine acres of land in Alpharetta and in 2001, built new operating facilities including an office, shop, warehouse and yard.

In 2004, LCW became the first contractor to utilize a composite steel grid deck with precast concrete slab design on an Interstate bridge for GDOT. The unique design afforded for bridge deck replacements during weekend hours, hence not restricting the heavy traffic flow during normal weekday business hours on I-285 in Atlanta.

In 2008, LCW Georgia Division began performing bridge repair work across the Southeast for Norfolk Southern Railway Corporation.

In 2010, LCW continued expansion of its customer base in the Southeast by acquiring prequalification status with neighboring States: Alabama Department of Transportation (ALDOT), South Carolina Department of Transportation (SCDOT), and Tennessee Department of Transportation (TDOT).

In 2012, LCW was selected as the first contractor to construct a design-build sign project for GDOT. The work consisted of replacing signs and pavement markings at 295 intersections located throughout District 3.
