The region of York located North of Toronto has been experiencing a rapid growth. VivaNext has been developed to facilitate community transit. The work consists of widening 4.2 kilometres along Highway 7 between Highway 400 and the GO Bradford/Barrie Railway line in the city of Vaughan.
Kiewit completed Calgary's first design-build transportation project on schedule in August 2003. The $59 million widening, interchange and corridor upgrade was finished without a recordable accident. An extensive partnering effort with key stakeholders provided crews ample room to work without causing major traffic delays.
Kiewit completely reconstructed three miles of Lejuene Road and Northwest 21st Street. The $81 million project included the construction of 11 bridges and associated ramps to prevent airport traffic from using Lejuene Road and also gives traffic direct access to SR-836 and SR-112.
Kiewit completed a $33.5 million contract to repair El Portal Road in Yosemite National Park after several days of heavy, warm rains combined with record flows in the Merced River caused extensive flooding and washed out the road in 19 locations.
Considered one of the largest design-build highway projects in Colorado history, the $191 million Northwest Parkway Toll Road opened to traffic on November 24, 2003, five weeks ahead of schedule. The project encompassed more than 9 miles of roadway alignment and includes 26 bridges and three toll plazas.
This C$53 million design-build project includes construction of a 16 km. four-lane divided highway and 11 bridges. Extremely challenging soil conditions required crews to undergo extensive pre-loading and monitoring in order to have the new highway open for two-lane traffic in September 2006.
The vivaNext - H3 Project is part of York Region Rapid Transit Corporation's plan for the next generation of rapid transit. The project includes the construction of rapidways — dedicated centre bus lanes — and 22 state-of-the-art station platforms. The 6.4-kilometre project will transform the Highway 7 corridor into a visually appealing and pedestrian-friendly environment.
This $18.5 million project improved the San Gabriel Subdivision of the Metrolink track. A Kiewit-led joint venture constructed this 19-mile, six-lane toll road. The work included 80 bridges, 725,000 square feet of retaining walls, 32 million cubic yards of excavation and 11 interchanges. Despite an 18-month environmental delay, the design-build project team opened the road to traffic ahead of schedule.
In 1997, a Kiewit-led joint venture began work on UDOT's Interstate 15 reconstruction, a $1.3-billion design-build project. Demolishing, designing and rebuilding a 16-mile stretch of freeway with 142 bridges, the team completed the job months ahead of schedule and in time for the 2002 Winter Olympics.
The Texas Department of Transportation awarded the DFW Connector contract to a Kiewit-led joint venture. The $1.02 billion project scope included the development, design and construction of the 8.4-mile initial phase of the ultimate 14.4-mile project. The project reduces congestion at the confluence of two of the area's most heavily traveled highways and ease access into DFW International Airport. Crews rebuilt portions of four highways, two interchanges and five bridges, ultimately doubling the capacity of the existing highway corridor.
