Two large bridge structures and more than 6 kilometres of roadway were built connecting Calgary Trail and Ellerslie Road. Thorough planning by project personnel minimized the impact to the traveling public and allowed for completion of the project in June 2001.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
This design-build project is 3.3 kilometre widening of Davis Drive in Newmarket's business core to add two dedicated center bus lanes in the corridor as rapidway. The work in this tight corridor includes design and construction of a new boulevard, road widening, retaining walls, box culverts extension, bridge replacement and railway crossing widening.
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.
The 8-mile I-15 FasTrak™ program, located between Kearny Mesa and Rancho Penasquitos, allows single occupancy vehicles to pay a fee to use the high occupancy vehicle lanes. Since the program's inception, the average daily traffic on the carpool lanes has increased from 9,400 to 20,000 vehicles per day.
