Newport News Shipyard Parking Improvements

Branscome is currently working on a project to improve the parking areas and access roads for Northrop Grumman's Newport News Shipyard.  These improvements will allow shipyard workers to more easily come and go from the facility as well as improving the overall safety.  Branscome will be providing the asphalt paving on this project.  A strong and reliable pavement layer is essential due to the vast amounts of traffic that enter and exit the parking area every day.  The Newport News Shipyard is one of the marquee manufacturing centers of Hampton Roads and an essential piece of our region's economy.  As such, we are extremely honored to be able to support their efforts to keep our economy strong.
