The Interstate 26 Mars Hill project was designated North Carolina's first interstate scenic byway. This 6-mile project involved extending I-26 through the Appalachian Mountains and performing 24 million cubic yards of excavation. At the time of its completion in April 2002, this 64-month project was the largest ever undertaken by the North Carolina Department of Transportation.
With Albuquerque's population growing, the I-40/Coors Interchange could no longer accommodate the daily traffic volume. The design-build project to rebuild the heavily traveled roadway included the interchange reconstruction, eight new bridges, pedestrian and bicycle paths, retaining walls, utility relocations, drainage improvements, signage and lighting.
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.
This $40 million design-build project upgraded 7 kilometres of the Sea-to-Sky Highway (Highway 99) from two to four lanes. Work was performed under existing highway traffic conditions, with minimal traffic closures and rerouting.
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.
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.
Kiewit partnered with Parsons to design and build the extension of A-25, Quebec's first public-private partnership (PPP) project in the transportation market. The extension was built to improve public transportation between Montreal and the North Shore as well as provide an alternate route for freight transportation.
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.
Nearly 2 miles of Interstate 25 and Interstate 40 interchange were reconstructed and expanded under this $237 million contract. As part of the project, 55 bridges were built including eight new precast segmental fly-over bridges, 33 new concrete girder bridges and four structural steel girder bridges. Ten bridges were rehabilitated.
This design-build project included widening 10 miles of two-lane roadway to a four-lane divided highway; six AASHTO girder wildlife bridges; and new construction or extension of 16 box culverts. The work included 1.7 million cubic yards of excavation; more than 200,000 tons of asphalt paving; 8,500 feet of culvert piping; and constructing a 2,000-foot-long runaway truck escape ramp.
