The Harry S. Truman Parkway – Phase V Project in Savannah, GA (Truman Parkway) consisted of 2.1 miles of roadway construction (grading, drainage, utility relocation, asphalt base and plant mix paving) on Harry S. Truman Parkway from Abercorn Street to Whitfield Avenue. It also included the construction of six bridges and approaches. The Truman Parkway project commenced at the termination of Phase IV where it transitioned from a north-south to an east-west direction of travel as it crossed the Vernon River and the surrounding marshland. The contract featured an aggressive schedule, construction on an environmentally-sensitive site and tides that fluctuated by as much as 10-feet, twice daily.
 
Balfour Beatty delivered the roadway project in 2014. It was the recipient of a Pile Driving Contractors Association 2013 Project of the Year Award for Marine projects over $5 Million and an Engineering News-Record Southeast Best Project Award of Merit in the category of Highways / Bridges in 2013.
