In less than 18 months, a Kiewit-led joint venture completed Phase I of the Greater Toronto Area's first bus rapid transit system. The team developed innovative design solutions to meet the project's technological challenges including real-time electronic bus arrival displays and a computer-aided dispatch transit control center with GPS.
Kiewit exceeded expectations by completing this fast-track project in just 10 months. By working simultaneously on three sections of the road, crews were able to maximize productivity and complete the project early. The reconstructed stretch of U.S. 11 provides a safer route for motorists with more lanes, expanded shoulders and extended merge lanes.
Using an A+B contract, the Oregon Department of Transportation selected Kiewit to reconstruct the intersection of Interstate 5 and Highway 217. This $38 million project relieved traffic congestion as exiting northbound I-5 traffic attempted to merge with the heavily traveled Highway 217, which provided the only freeway access into western Portland. The reconstruction work involved merging northbound I-5 with westbound Highway 217 via a fly-over ramp.
The $1.28 billion T-REX Project is the largest transportation contract in Colorado history. Designed and built by a Kiewit-led joint venture, the project included improvements to Interstate 25 and Interstate 225 and construction of transit lines. Additional work involved reconstruction of interchanges and bridges, a new drainage system and improved pedestrian and bicycle access.
The Florida Department of Transportation awarded this $75 million project to alleviate up to 40 percent of traffic on Interstate 4 through the Disney corridor. Kiewit constructed the toll State Road - 429 Western Beltway, as well as the associated ramps and state-of-the-art signature walls near the gantry.
This $721 million design-build project involves constructing one 10-mile high-occupancy vehicle (HOV) lane northbound on Interstate 405 from Interstate 10 to U.S.-101. The project will realign existing on and off ramps, reconstruct or modify 23 bridge and ramp structures, build approximately 18 miles of retaining walls, and perform road improvements on the adjacent city streets.
Beartooth Highway serves as a vital link to the western route of Yellowstone Park. A rain-on-snow event in mid-March 2005 caused the road to be heavily damaged. Under a $15.2 million design-build contract, Kiewit completed reconstruction of 12 miles of the highway in just 16 weeks.
